This side dish goes great with chicken and fish curries and is a great alternative to rice if like us you are cutting down on the carbs. Somewhat surprisingly to ourselves Dean and I didn’t even miss having rice as this side dish has great texture and a lovely crunch, plus it’s packed full of flavour. Along with that it’s bursting with goodness – 9 vitamins and 8 minerals plus it’s very low in calories. 100g is only 25 calories and 5g of carbohydrate. So it’s tasty and healthy – that’s what we want to hear! 😉
I much prefer roasting cauliflower these days as the flavour is locked in and it keeps hold of all the nutrients. I always used to boil my cauliflower and it tasted like a different vegetable. You can have plain roasted cauliflower as well – just add the oil and season.
I’ve seen this sort of thing on Indian menus recently along with the other side dishes, so give it a go at home!
