  • Cauliflower – 1 medium, separate the florets and take wholesome heads
  • Onion – half of a medium onion, diced into small pcs.
  • Green chillies – 2, split it in the middle
  • Veggies – ½ cup of green peas, carrot, beans, mushroom, corn
  • Chicken – half cup, diced into small pcs. (optional)
  • Eggs – 1 (optional)
  • Ginger – 1-inch, diced into small pcs.
  • Oil – 2 tbsp
  • Salt and pepper – adjust according to taste
  • Coriander leaves – for garnishing


  • Separate the cauliflower florets and grate the wholesome heads using the larger hole of the grater box. Don’t use the smaller hole – it’ll simply make the whole thing mushy. Use 3 cups of this grated cauliflower.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet. When it is hot, add the diced onion, green chillies and ginger. Saute till the onion begins to turn brown.
  • Put the veggies and mix them with onion. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Cover and cook for 5 minutes over low heat. You can also put tofu and edamame to incorporate more protein in your diet.
  • Put cauliflower. Mix everything together for a minute or till the raw smell of cauliflower goes away. Adjust salt and pepper. Cover and cook on low heat for about 5 minutes if you like your cauliflower crunchy or for 10 minutes if you like it well done.
  • Make a small hole by pushing the florets towards the edges. Add a drop of oil. Break an egg, and mix it with cauliflower. Keep stirring for a minute.
  • If you’re using chicken, fry the chicken pieces in a separate skillet for 10 minute or till it is cooked. Add salt and pepper. Before eating, throw them in the cauliflower mix.
  • Garnish your dish with coriander leaves.
  • This is a standalone dish, which you can serve with hot chili or Sriracha sauce for a spicer version.
