Cauliflower Thoran is a lovely and tasty recipe. I learned this recipe from my mom. I am a lover of Nadan dishes. So decided to make cauliflower in Nadan style. Thanks mummy for teaching me the dish so that I have an addition to my recipe list.

Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves- few
Grated coconut-1 cup

Gently grate cauliflower and keep it ready.
Heat oil in a non-stick pan and crackle mustard seeds.
Add sliced small onions and curry leaves.
Once onion becomes soft add grated cauliflower and salt, saute for 5 minutes.
Cover the pan and cook on low flame. Remove the lid after 10 minutes and mix well.
Heat oil in another pan add grated coconut, cumin seeds, turmeric powder, coriander powder, chilli powder and gram masala.
Fry for 5 minutes. Then ground this mixture. Keep it aside.
When cauliflower is cooked, add this ground mixture and stir well.
Cook on a low flame for 5 more minutes.

Before cooking we have to put cauliflower into boiling water to kill germs inside in the cauliflower.
We have to buy good quality cauliflower.
