Cauliflower rice biriyani – Day 70/19

A recent addition to our food list. Not able to let go the taste of biriyani and at the same time keeping a watch of carbs intake I came up with this grand idea of Cauliflower rice biriyani 🙂 I know it tastes good as cauliflower makes it way to the weekly grocery list every week these days.

Keeping the recipe method simple for lack of time.

To grind:
1 cup of fresh garlic
1 cup of fresh ginger
3 cloves
2 cinnamon sticks(full)
3 elachi


1. Saute in below order (add half ghee and half oil for better taste)
        onion (1 no/cup of rice)
        green chillies (4 no/cup)
        tomato (1 no/cup)
        grinded paste
        mint leaves (handful)
        coriander leaves (handful)
        curd ( 3 spoons – optional)

        chilli powder ( 1/4 to 1 spoon depending on green chillies spice)

2. Shred cauliflower in food processor (check youtube for how to make cauliflower rice. It can be done with Indian mixer or any blender too).

3. Add shredded cauliflower and cook for some more time until its blended well.

4. Just continue to cook on stove top with lid open if you like it slightly crunchy else pressure cook for 1 whistle if you like it soft.

5. After cooker is turned off , add lemon juice, mix well and serve with raita!

  1. Will give you another tip to save some time – trader Joe’s has cauliflower don’t have to even process your own ! Think they have broccoli rice too. I am not a cauliflower fan at all ( except the occasional piece of Gobi Manchurian) but really wish I was for diet reasons. Cauliflower flower crust pizza is supposed to be amazing too,another healthy but fun meal idea for your family

    • yes have seen it. trader’s joe is not accessible for us. I tried it once but somehow its not the same as freshly shredded one. I dont hate cauliflower at the same time don’t love it either. just accepting it as rice substitute 🙂
