Fried cauliflower

Vegetarian today. Indian influences, Indian spices. Something very healthy. And very easy to make. I like this recipe because is a different way of eating cauliflower. Those who do not like this vegetable will find it interesting.


½ cauliflower
2 eggs
4 tablespoons milk
Some freshly ground black pepper
Some salt to taste
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
½ teaspoon turmeric
Some vegetable oil

First we will cut the cauliflower in little pieces. The next step is steaming them for five minutes. Once this is done, we will drain the cauliflower.
In a container we will mix the eggs, the milk, the pepper and the salt.
Now, using a pan without any oil, we will toast the cumin seeds gently. Do not let them get burnt. It is important to shake the pan with the cumin seeds. When they start to get brown remove the pan from the heat.
Now we will add half of the seeds to the container with the eggs and the milk. We will mix this well. Then we will add the cauliflower pieces to the mixture. And then we will fry pieces of cauliflower and egg mixture in a frying pan with hot oil. We may need to do this in several batches.
Finally, add the rest of the cumin seeds, pepper and salt to taste. And enjoy your Fried Cauliflower.

I make a delicious Turkish version of fried cauliflower. Never have any leftovers when I make this. Cut pieces of cauliflower into slices. Dip in egg/water mixture, coat with flour and fry in olive or vegetable oil. I also fix carrots and zuchinni the same way.

We serve with a side of galic and oil flavored yogart. Delish.
