2 Servings


4 cups Cauliflower, riced (finely chopped or coarsely grated)
1 tsp Oil (optional)
1/2 tsp Brown Mustard seeds
1 hot Green Chile, whole or cored and minced
1 small pinch Asafoetida
1 stalk Fresh Curry Leaves, finely sliced
Sea Salt to taste
2 cups Non-Dairy Yogurt

Toppings and Garnishes:
1/4 cup Roasted Cashews
Pomegranate Arils
Ripe Mango, diced
Carrots, shredded
Fresh Cilantro, chopped


Heat a large skillet and add the oil if using, mustard seeds, chana and urad dal, along with the red chile. Cook stirring over low-medim heat until mustard seeds pop.

Add asafoetida, curry leaves and the cauliflower rice; mix well.

Sprinkle a pinch of salt and cook until the cauliflower is heated through and just tender. Turn off the heat and let cool completely.

Mix with the yogurt and fold with a spatula to mix gently but thoroughly.

Set aside covered for about 5 minutes for the flavors to meld. Taste and adjust seasonings before serving.

Serve at room temperature or cool garnished with your favorite toppings and accompaniments. Delicious!
