Fried Cauliflower

Hindi: phool gobhi
Till a few years ago, cauliflower used to be a vegetable that is only available during winter but of late cauliflower is available year around especially in big cities. Referred to as the aristocrat of the cabbage family, the flowers are also eaten raw at times. While buying, look for fresh cauliflowers with compact white heads and green fresh looking leaves. Avoid and reject any loose or spread out heads – they are a sure sign of over maturity.
