Cauliflower Kurma

Cauliflower Kurma is a delicious Kurma variety made with cauliflower, masala powders and specially ground coconut paste. I have prepared this cauliflower kurma in pressure cooker but if you are not comfortable cooking in pressure cooker you can cook it in kadai itself.

Cauliflower is considered as one of the world's healthiest food.
💪Did you know that it's rich in Vitamin C?It contains about 80 % of recommended daily value of vitamin C.
It's also rich in vitamin k.
💪Rich in fibre which help in weight loss and prevents leaky gut syndrome.
💪  It also contains decent amount of other B complex vitamins,and certain minerals like calcium,manganese,potassium, iron etc.
💪Itcontains a phyto-nutrient called Sulforaphone and a plant sterol called Indole-3-carbinol which function as an anti-estrogen agent and together these compounds prevent  breast,cervical,ovarian cancer in women and prostrate and colon cancer in men.
💪Moreover cauliflower is rich in anti-inflamatory compounds and has antioxidants which help in preventing heart disease,diabetes,stroke,Alzheimers and Parkinson's disease and even protects the eye from macular degeneration.
