For the Cooking from Cookbook this week, it's a simple delicious dry saute with Cauliflower. Every time in the winter season, I look forward to cooking with fresh cauliflower. However this time, we are yet to get our share of fresh cauliflower. Still, we couldn't let go of the flower when we saw it in the stall.
When it was raining continuously for about 10 days, we were short of ideas along with short of vegetables. It was the weekend, and it was supposed to be chicken for the rest. We decided to make a simple Vegetable Pulao that could be paired with both chicken and cauliflower.
I had served this simple meal with vegetable pulao, it was quite simple yet it turned out very good. And I especially liked it a lot with the roasted cumin sauteed cauliflower.
