How To Make Roasted Cauliflower?
You can roast cauliflower either in oven or on stove top using a heavy cast iron griddle. Roasting cauliflower in oven is easy and mess free.
Separate the cauliflower into bite size florets and clean them well. Toss the florets into spice powders and set aide for minutes. Spread on a baking sheet in single layer and roast in the oven for 20-22 minutes at 220C (420F). Once the florets shrink and brown at the edges they are done.
How To Roast Cauliflower on Stove Top.
First of all use a heavy cast iron griddle or tava for roasting cauliflower on stove top. Heat the cast rion pan for 5 minutes with a quick spray of oil.
Gently add the seasoned cauliflower florets. Cook in low-medium flame flame for 15-20 minutes. Give a quick spray of oil if required. Do not cover the pan.
Variations and Tips For Perfect Roasted Cauliflower:
You can vary the seasoning as per taste in this recipe. Instead of Indian spices you can use salt, pepper powder and lemon juice. Also you can sprinkle some parmesan cheese over roasted cauliflower while serving.
Make sure to give a quick spray of oil or brush your baking sheet with melted butter.
For crispy roasted cauliflower you can add 2 teaspoons of corn flour or rice flour along with spice powders. Also roast for 3-5 minutes more so that the edges char and turn crispy.
Finally serve roasted cauliflower as soon as made else they will turn soggy.
Serve the vegan roasted cauliflower as snack with any welcome drink or as side dish with rice or roti. You can also use these as stuffing any wrap or even serve with toast.
