This Oven Roasted Cauliflower Recipe is something that I have been wanting to try for a long time.
I have seen so many varieties and variations in making this dish and each one is equally tempting.
So finally when I decided to joined Bakeathon event,apart from the cakes and cookies that the kids wanted, I was eager to make some savory bakes as well. So the first thing that came to my mind was to prepare an Oven Roasted Cauliflower Recipe.
I decided to make a small portion to see how it goes or how t turns out and then planned on making more based on the outcome.
The dish came out so well and I was so impressed. After making this I just kept it in a box after taste testing. When the kids got home,seeing the box, they eagerly opened it to find the roasted florets.
The lil one who hates all vegetables except a select few, was happily munching it. Lil Angel was bowled over and my parents just got a few for tasting!
Had I known that it would be such a hit, I would have made a bigger batch!
Although the taste was great, I am not sure how many times I will be making this again as the time taken is a bit more and I am not patient enough!!
Here is how to prepare Oven Roasted Cauliflower Recipe
Cauliflower- 1 small, florets separated
Sambar powder- 1 teaspoon
Corn flour- 2 tablespoons
Turmeric powder- a large pinch
Salt to taste
- Take all the ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine.
- Place the cauliflower florets on a baking tray and spread it out evenly.
- Bake at 180 degree C in a pre heated oven for 15 minutes.
- Switch over to broil mode and bake to another 15 minutes, stirring the contents on the tray twice in between.
- Once the cauliflower turns crisp, remove from oven and serve.
- The baking time will vary on the size of the florets.Mine were small sized.
- The quantity of corn flour will depend on the size of the cauliflower.Adjust to suit the quantity.
- I baked it in the middle rack and broiled it in the upper rack.
- Add any spices to suit your taste. Pepper powder / garam masala / Chili powder etc are good options.
- Be sure to move around the florets in the tray so that they don’t get burnt.
- Don’t over crowd the tray with florets. If making a large portion, bake in batches
