Cauliflower Poriyal - Cauliflower Stir Fry

#CauliflowerPoriyal : #Cauliflower is rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin B 6. It is also a good source of minerals like Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium. 100 gm of Cauliflower gives nearly 80% of Vitamin C to your body which is the recommended daily requirement of Vitamin C for you.
But people prefer fried Cauliflower in their menu. I feel frying destroys important nutrients.
I have already published many recipes on cauliflower with masalas.
Here I would like to present a simple stir fry which is very very easy to prepare and very tasty too!
It can be done very quickly if it is farm fresh.
