I’ve been looking over past favorites and remembered how good this cauliflower recipe is!
1
Combine the oil, chilies, and cumin seeds over medium heat. Cook for about a minute.
2
Add the ginger, stir, and cook for about another 30 seconds.
3
Add the cauliflower, stir, and cook for 2 – 3 minutes or until the cauliflower just begins to brown.
4
Add the salt and pepper. Cover the pan and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for about 7- 10 minutes until the cauliflower browns some more and starts to get tender.
5
Uncover and cook a little more reducing the heat if it is getting too brown.
6
Stir in the tomatoes and vinegar, cover, and cook another 2-3 minutes adding a little water if needed so there’s a little sauce. You can always evaporate away some of the liquid until you get the desired consistency.
7
Taste for seasoning then stir in the cilantro. You won’t even believe how good this is.
