Cauliflower in Tomato Coriander Sauce on Cardamom Rice.

A homely everyday healthy meal would be vegetables. In this case we had cauliflower which we felt like eating in a different way than the usual plain steamed with olive oil and lemon. So I decided to cook it in a tomato sauce and dry powdered coriander giving the cauliflower a very tasty twist. Fresh coriander was add on top just before serving giving the whole dish a wonderful aroma. It was delicious. It was served on cardamom rice.

I apologize for the above picture. I always forget to take a photo once the dish is ready.


  • 1 medium size cauliflower with the greens around it.(not a good idea).
  • 500 gm of tomato pieces.
  • 70 gr of tomato concentra.
  • 1 Tbsp coriander.
  • 4 big onions roughly chopped.
  • 4 cloves of garlic roughly chopped.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • 1 bunch of fresh coriander roughly chopped.
  • Heat olive oil in a big pan or karahi .
  • Add onions, garlic and coriander powder and saute all together.
  • Add cauliflower florets and saute.
  • Add cauliflower greens and saute.

  • Add tomato pieces and concentrate and mix well until a homogeneous sauce is obtained, 
  • Add 1 cup of water, let boil, cover and reduce heat to minimum for 45 minutes. or until the cauliflower is cooked. If the green parts are not cooked discard.
  • Keep on adding water so the sauce does not thicken too much.
  • When ready, turn off heat and add chopped fresh coriander.
  • Serve with the cardamom rice.
Cardamom rice.

This time the rice is going to be made differently.

  • 2 cups Jasmine rice.
  • 3 cups water.
  • 1 beef cube.
  • 10 cardamom pods crushed taking off the casing keeping the little black specks.
  • Olive oil to fry the rice.
  • ;Dissolve the cube in 3 cubs boiling water.
  •  Add the boiling water,stir, cover, reduce heat to a minimum and set your timer to 20 minutes after which the rice should be ready. 
  • Result: a delicious rice with a beautiful aroma.
Enjoy this different meal.
