Spiced Cauliflower with Frankfurter

timemed skillmed budgetmed

This dish is influenced by the Indian cooking style, which we will do one day in this blog, in the meantime, please enjoy this ‘fusion’ recipe. Having frank sausages in a spiced cauliflower dish may sound weird, but it adds chewy and slightly crispy texture to contrast the soft cauliflower

Essential components:
• Frankfurter, cut into bite size
• Cauliflower cut to small chunks

The  spices:
• Cumin seeds
• Turmeric powder
• Chopped garlic
• Chopped ginger

From the pantry:
• Salt
• Oil

Method:
• Cook the cumin, garlic and ginger in a little bit of oil- do not let them burn
• Add the frankfurters and cook until they are browned without letting the spice burn (see below)
• Add the cauliflower, turmeric, salt, and a little bit of water- close the lid and cook until the cauliflower is ready (Shake the pan once in awhile)
• Taste for final seasoning and serve

Tips and thoughts:
• There are few ways to make sure the spice not burn,
1. You can remove the spice from the pan.
2. In my case, I was cooking on a medium low heat and my pan was large enough that there are cold spots on the pan so I can ‘set them aside’.
3. You can reverse the process and cook the franks first and then the spices.
