UpKari Curry-inspired Cauliflower Rice

This particular dish is usually made with vegetables like French beans and served as a side dish, however, when I experimented and tried it with cauliflower rice it came out really well as a whole meal!


  • Tiny Spoon Mustard Seed
  • 1-2 Curry Leaves
  • 1 Small Onion, Diced
  • 1 Small Piece Ginger, Diced, Sliced or Grated
  • 1 Small Piece Garlic, Crushed
  • 1/4 Kg Cauliflower
  • 1/4 Cup Peas
  • 1/4 Cup Diced Carrots


Prep: 10 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes

  1. Prep the cauliflower – wash and allow it to completely dry.
  2. Grate the cauliflower with a traditional hand cheese grater or a food processor. Avoid blenders or any other method that makes it soggy.
  3. Heat 1 spoon coconut oil.
  4. Add mustard seeds and wait for the popping sounds, add onions, curry leaves, ginger and garlic, and add green chilly (optional). 
  5. Add steamed peas and carrots (you can optionally add the peas and carrots to the pan here, however, avoid it getting too soggy before you add the grated cauliflower).
  6. Add in the dry grated cauliflower and some salt. 
  7. Serve as is or with a side of protein like tava paneer or chicken.
