Hot & Sour Cauliflower
One day suddenly I felt like having something little sour, spicy and hot with a vegetable. But I had only cabbage and cauliflower in my kitchen. Among them I like cauliflower more. So I picked up a cauliflower and for the sourness tamarind and for spiciness with attractive color I chose red chilly powder. Taking all this together I had to prepare one dish. It was raining outside and I was so hungry that I din't have time to plan anything so I simply started off and finally obtained a masterpiece. It was far better than my expectation. This dish goes well with chapathi, roti, rice or bread. It is a best combination with saru, dally or any curry which is light.
- Can use any number of different vegetables.
- Tamarind water is made by soaking tamarind in a cup of water until soft. Squeeze the pulp repeatedly with your fingers to dissolve it. Discard the fibrous material and just use the thick liquid.
- Add little water when boiling cauliflower if tamarind water evaporates and cauliflower is not completely cooked.
