Cauliflower Rice/Sadam

I would say i dedicate this recipe to my dad.He is the one who came up with this simple recipe.He loves cauliflower and would not mind having it daily in his menu.
This cauliflower sadam is my father's invention.He used to love cauliflower and used love eating it in any form.I remember him going for his evening walks and buy three or four cauliflower at a time and plan a menu for each one and my mother would religiously follow whatever he says.As far as this rice we used to have it every Sunday during cauliflower season.Another such invention of his is the Cauliflower Kootu which i have posted earlier.

You will Need

  • One cup Rice
  • One small Cauliflower
  • Half a cup Peas
  • Four Green chillies
  • Two tbs Oil
  • A pinch of Turmeric powder
  • One tsp Mustard Seeds
  • One tsp Channa dal
  • Few Cashew nuts
  • Salt to taste
  • One Lemon
