  • Heat oil in a nonstick skillet on medium high heat. Add mustard seeds and allow them to splutter
  • Turn the heat to low and add hing, curry leaves, and cashews and cook for another minute mixing well
  • Add turmeric, cauliflower, and salt. Mix well. Cook on medium low heat for 3 to 5 mins or until the cauliflower is cooked tender, stirring frequently. Turn off the heat while the cauliflower still has a bite to it so it does not turn mushy. Add lemon juice and mix well.



  1. I have skipped urad dal in this recipe. If you like add 2 teaspoons along with the cashews and curry leaves.
  2. You can also skip the cashews to keep the carb count low
