Cauliflower in Whole Spices
The slave driver woke me up with a slap on the shoulder (after just 7 hours of beauty sleep).
"Hey! Don't you think you ought to start cooking the curry?"
"I am thinking of going sledding with the kids after lunch, so we'd better not eat late."
"What the ·$%&*+..."
So I had to get out of bed, put on my bathrobe, roll up the sleeves and go slave in the kitchen. Making Indonesian Beef Rendang today so that would take hours. Though managed to make the process shorter by using the Rendang paste that One Wheel sent me. Also made a Cauliflower in Whole Spices which on the contrary is easy and fast to prepare.
Cauliflower in Whole Spices :
1 Head of Cauliflower (cut into big pieces)
Fresh green chilli
Cinnamon bark (tiny piece bashed)
A little water
Coriander leaves (optional)
Heat up water in a casserole and when it's boiling, add in 2 tsp of salt and cook the cauliflower in it for maximum 15 minutes. It should be cooked but still crunchy. Drain and set aside the vegetable.
In a wok, heat up some oil and brown the onions, garlic, ginger, chilli and whole spices. When they sizzle and are fragrant, add in the cooked cauliflower, coat it well with the spices and add in the diced tomatoes. Salt and pepper to taste. Add in a little water, cover for a minute, toss in the coriander leaves and serve hot.
