  • 2 bags frozen riced cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil or ghee
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 5 to 6 curry leaves
  • 2 green chilies sliced long
  • 1 medium onion chopped finely
  • 1 large potato optional chopped thinly
  • 1/4 bag frozen peas optional
  • A handful of unsalted peanuts or chopped walnuts optional*
  • *I use walnuts due to dietary restrictions. Peanuts are a legume and often difficult for individuals with food intolerances.
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon or lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Himalayan pink salt
  • Chopped cilantro leaves


  • Add the oil in a pan on medium heat. Add the mustard seeds, curry leaves, green chilies and wait until the mustard seeds stop popping.
  • Add the chopped onion and saute until translucent.
  • Add the peanuts or walnuts and potatoes. Cook for 2-3 minutes until potatoes begin to soften.
  • Add the riced cauliflower, peas, salt, and turmeric, and mix all ingredients together.
  • Cook for 8-10 more minutes until soft, fluffy, and fragrant. Add lemon juice at the end and garnish with chopped cilantro.
  • Serve hot!
