Cauliflower Pepper Fry

Cauliflower is one among my favorite veggies and i love to have this with simple rasam and rice and even as a side dish for chapathis too. Being bored with the usual Cauliflower Curry i was thinking to make some different with cauliflower and tried out cauliflower curry using freshly ground pepper. It turned amazing well

  1. Cauliflower - 1 Medium Size
  2. Onion - 1
  3. Ginger Garlic Paste - 1/2 Tsp (Optional)
  4. Black Pepper - 3/4 Tsp
  5. Cumin Seeds - 1/2 Tsp
  6. Salt - To Taste
  7. Turmeric powder - a pinch
  8. Oil - 1 Tbsp


  • Wash the cauliflower and cut them into small florets.
  • Chop the onions into thin slices. In a pan add oil and add ginger garlic paste.
  • Sauté for a while and add the onions and sauté till they become translucent.
  • Add the cauliflower florets to this. Using a mortar and pestle, coarsely ground the black pepper and cumin seeds separately.
  •   Add this to the cauliflower and add salt and turmeric powder.
  • Sprinkle little water and cook the florets become soft.
  • Switch off the flame once it is done.
  • Serve hot with rasam rice or sambar rice. Even this will taste yum with roti also


  • As my parents are not so comfortable with garlic smell, i usually omit the ginger garlic paste. 
  • I added 3/4 spoon of pepper powder, as my hubby is not comfortable with pepper taste. you can increase/decrease the pepper powder according to your taste
