Oven Roasted Cauliflower – South Indian StyleA delicious recipe to prepare crispy oven roasted cauliflower.
  • 1 Big Cauliflower (Cut Into Medium Size Florets)
  • 1/4 Cup Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Sambar Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Red Chili Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Hing
  • As Per Taste Salt

  1. Cut the cauliflower into medium size florets and clean it by soaking in a mixture of warm water and salt.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine all the other ingredients and whisk it.
  3. Now add the cauliflower florets little by little and toss it well to coat thoroughly with the mixture.
  4. Spread it evenly on a greased baking sheet.
  5. Preheat the oven at 425F for 15 minutes.
  6. Roast the cauliflower for 25 minutes, tossing it once around 15 minutes.
  7. To get a crispy texture, turn the oven switch to broil mode for 3-5 minutes, again tossing once in the middle. While doing this make sure that you keep the oven door open and keep your kids out of the kitchen.
My Notes:
  1. Using the same procedure you can experiment with different flavors like garam masala, curry powder or use a variety of herbs.

    What is Sambar Powder and Hing?
    And, where would I find it?

    • Madhuram says:

      Sambar powder is a South Indian flavoring like curry powder which is a North Indian flavoring. It’s a mixture of cumin, black pepper, red chilies, turmeric and dal. Hing is also a spice used for flavoring and digestion. It’s derived from a bark of a tree. Both are available in Indian grocery stores. You could used curry powder or garam masala or Italian seasoning mix too.
