#aloogobi #cauliflower and #lowcarb #spudlightpotatoes – How do you guys cook your cauliflower ? .
I cook it in a number of ways like a cauliflower bake with low fat cheddar which is absolutely delicious and lipsmacking . I simply roast or grill them with spices and herbs and extra virgin olive oil and that’s another way and this is another recipe, an Indian style dish , made the way my mom used to cook it . When it’s combined with potatoes and cooked in #indianspices like cumin , #freshginger #fenugreek leaves etc etc (I added my own touch to it like I normally do ) and it takes it to another level . I have topped it with a dash of #chaatmasala and #freshcilantro . I have used 25% less carbs spudlightpotatoes from #coles to make it .
Perfect and spicy for a #coldday (14 degree C) in Sydney today and it was around 3 degrees in the morning!!!
I must add more than half a cup of cauliflower is high food map so please don’t overeat for all my #Gerd followers as it can be difficult to digest in large quantities. The potatoes however balance them out perfectly making it a #delicious #comfortfood . I’m finally getting my opportunity to eat potatoes after loosing 10 kgs or 22 pounds and I’m making the most of it!!!! Need the recipe, let me know . The spices can be increased or reduced to suit your palate , this contains #notomatoes so better for #acidreflux #heartburn or severe #acidity . Have a blessed day all and staysafe
