Quick and Easy Stir-Fried Cauliflower

I have always loved how I can have endless creative ways to use cauliflower. This simple, quick, and easy stir-fried cauliflower recipe is one of my favourite ways of using these tasty curds. I like to add mine on top of the rice to make a nice, delicious rice bowl, or sometimes I enjoy it like a salad and eat it as it is.

Main Ingredients:

  • Onion
  • Bell Peppers
  • Cauliflower
  • Maitake Mushroom (or any mushroom of your choice)
  • Rice
  • Pumpkin Seeds

Cook rice separately. I cooked mine using a pressure cooker.

For the Rice:

1.) Put two cups of rice and 2.5 cups of water. Pressurize for 20 minutes. Note: No salt added.

How to make Stir-Fried Cauliflower:

The overall process of making this stir-fried cauliflower is really easy but here are some tips that can help you to do it perfectly.

1.) Fry onion (use a non-stick pan instead of frying it with oil) until it’s golden brown. Add mushrooms and salt. Add 1-2 teaspoons of chilli powder, black pepper, 1 teaspoon of turmeric and 1 teaspoon of cumin. Fry until the mushrooms are golden brown.

2.) Add chopped cauliflower and sliced bell peppers. Stir everything and let it cook for 5-6 minutes until the cauliflower and peppers are just about the right taste. Note: Do not overcook.

3.) Add half a cup of pumpkin seeds and leave it to simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes.

4.) Prepare rice and top it with the stir-fried cauliflower.

5.) Enjoy!
