Saturday, April 2, 2011

The cauliflower stems have lot of fiber and when cooked they are very soft and so cilantro …. I don’t throw the stems I either make rasam or chutney with them …
Ingredients:

Cilantro stem 1 bunch
Rasam powder 2 teaspoons
Tumeric powder 2 pinches
Tamarind 2 inch by 2 inch piece or lemon sized
Water 6 to 8 cups
Oil 1 teaspoon
Mustard seeds ½ teaspoon
Jeera ½ teaspoon
Menthi seeds ½ seeds
Red chillies 2
Hing 1 pinch
Curry leaves 1 spring
Salt as needed

Preparation:
1. Chop the cauliflower stems and cilantro into small pieces. Heat water in a deep vessel and add tamarind or tamarind paste. Add the chopped pieces and add tumeric powder and salt.
2. When the stems are half cooked and water is boiling. Add the rasam powder and mix well. When the vegetables are fully cooked. Switch off the stove.
3. Heat a pan add oil after oil is heated add mustard seeds, menthe seeds, jeera, curry leaves and red chillies cut into two or three pieces.
