I have been really busy lately, and haven’t had the time to post any recipes. But I promise, I will try adding as many recipes I could forth coming, I have some of them in draft and will post it soon. This recipe is a good combination with chapathi/ roti or even toasted bread.
Cauliflower Egg Fry / Cauliflower Muttai Varuval

I first tasted something similar at my friends place and wanted to try it out. I tired it out with frying cauliflower and egg separately and then mixing it together at the end. This can be cooked together by first frying eggs followed by cauliflower or separately like how I did it. You could also either grate the cauliflower or add it as small pieces.

This tasted fantastic with chapathi, something different to try with cauliflower. Try not to over fry the cauliflower, as it would lose its texture.

Split Urad Dhal 1/4 tsp ( Optional)
