Chili Cauliflower ( Baked Version) ~ Low Calorie Recipes

Recently I have introduced several Color Cauliflowers to my readers, I have made Colorful Cauliflower Bake with Purple Cauliflower and made Cauliflower CousCous Salad with Green Cauliflower and today I made this Chili Cauliflower with Orange Cauliflower. If Cauliflower is one common thing in all these recipes, then Low Calorie and Healthy touch is another common thing.
Chili Cauliflower w/ Orange Cauliflower
In original version of this recipe you have to deep fry the battered cauliflowers, use food color, use Ajonomato ( msg) to get the perfect taste and texture for this zesty dish. But I have skipped all these 3 unhealthy steps and still managed to get the beautiful and bright, and sizzling and slurpy appetizer or snack. Thanks to Orange Cauliflower and bringing the natural color to this dish and thanks to my oven for doing it's job and keeping this dish healthy. This recipe almost walks in the same steps of Chili Panner with slight variations. Hope you will like and enjoy this healthy touch to this popular Indo-Chineese dish. Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Cauliflower Florets - 2 cups
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Black Pepper - 1/4 tsp
Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Hot Sauce - 1 tsp
Olive Oil - 1 Tbsp

For Chili Sauce:
Oil - 1 Tsp
Soy Sauce - 1 Tbsp
White Vinegar - 1 Tbsp
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
Garlic - 1 Tbsp ( chopped)
Chili - 1 tsp ( chopped)
Tomato Sauce - 1 tsp
Red Chili Sauce - 1 tsp
Bell Pepper - 1/2 cup ( chopped) ( optional)
Spring Onions - 1 Tbsp


  1. Wash the cauliflower florets under luke-warm water. Set a side in colander to drain the excess water. 
  2. Take a medium bowl , Add Olive Oil, salt, black pepper, red chili powder and Hot Sauce to make the batter.  Coat the cauliflowers with this seasoning. Place the coated florets in non-stick baking sheet and bake them for 30 -35 min at 350 F.
  3. Heat the non-stick pan and add Oil to it. Once the oil is hot add chopped green chili, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger garlic paste, Saute for 2 min. If you are using, add Green or Red Bell Pepper cubes and saute for 1 min. 
  4. Add chopped garlic, followed by Red Chili sauce and finally add tomato sauce ( to add mild sweetness and color). 
  5. Add the baked cauliflower florets to the pan with Chili Sauce and mix well and finally garnish with Chopped Spring Onions and switch off the stove. 
  6. Transfer this into Serving Bowl and serve warm as appetizer or serve as a snack with coffee or chai.
