Cauliflower Egg Porutu ~ Cauliflower Egg Scramble

This is another everyday simple recipe that is made with cauliflower. This recipe comes from my mom-in-laws kitchen. I usually make Egg and Broccoli Stir-fry which is popular in my family ( that is made with Broccoli and Boiled Egg). When my MIL was here at my house, she suggested to make Cauliflower and Egg stir-fry, I was thinking Cauliflower and Boiled Egg combination, wondering how that would taste. But then she corrected me that it is Cauliflower and Scrambled Egg Stir-Fry. That is Cauliflower will be sauteed on high until it becomes tender and get scrambled with whisked eggs and gets the final touch of some herbs like Cilantro or Spring Onions. This is goes very well with Rice, Roti. But my preference and favorite way of eating this is wrapping it in a roti like a Roll which will be handy for lunch boxes or picnics. Some times I try this on sandwiches for breakfast. Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Cauliflower - 1 head (or 2 cups florets)
Onion - 1/4 medium
Green Chili - 2
Clove - 2
Cinnamon - 1 inch stick
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1/2 tsp
Eggs - 3
salt - 1 tsp
black pepper - 1/2 tsp
cilantro or spring onions - 2 Tbsp
Oil -2 Tbsp

Preparatory Steps:

  • Separate florets from cauliflower head and wash them by keeping under running warm water. Leave them in warm water with some salt for 10 min.  Drain them completely and microwave for 3 min. 
  • Chop Green Chili and Onion finely.
  • Beat Eggs in a medium bowl, whisk together well and add 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp black pepper.


  1. Heat non-stick pan on the stove add oil to it. Once the oil is hot, add Clove, Cinnamon and Cumin Seeds. Saute them for 1 min and add ginger garlic paste to the oil. As it separates from oil, add chopped and green chili and onions and saute them for 2 to 3 minutes until they become translucent. 
  2. Add semi-cooked ( or half boiled) cauliflower to the pan and mix with onions. Add 1/2 tsp salt and keep stir-frying until cauliflower becomes tender. 
  3. Pour egg mixture on top of cauliflower and let it set for 1 or 2 min allowing egg mixture to cook, mix it gently  with out breaking cauliflower , scrambling it evenly so that cauliflowers are coated with eggs.  Taste and adjust the salt and seasonings accordingly. Finally add chopped cilantro or spring onions and switch off the stove.

This is very simple recipe with minimal ingredients, and one way to sneak in some veggies along with eggs. As the mild spices are used in this recipe, this goes well with Roti or Sandwiches as well.
