A wonderful dish! Not your boring vegetable! I love the cabbage as much as the cauliflower but plan to use a bigger pan, like a Dutch oven, if you are using cabbage instead of cauliflower.

OK fellow "tweaksters": here is my version of this recipe. Heated oil and mustard seed (mine was really old so not much flavor); added cauliflower and potato as directed but also added a medium onion cut up in chunks about 1/4 tsp of garlic powder and about 1/2 Tablespoon (approx) of steakhouse seasoning (the grinder kind with chunks of garlic dried onion salt peppercorns etc) and a few shakes of CURRY powder (because I didn't have any turmeric). I also added a container of fresh sliced baby bella mushrooms. I think the extra onion and mushrooms helped balance out the oil. There was savory tangy and a hint of sweet without adding any sugar. My husband and I thought it was very flavorful. I served it with a lemon/pepper marinated turkey tenderloin and it was very good! Quick tasty sidedish! Read More

This was okay. It really had no flavor except the fried potatoes and cauliflower. Even though I cut down on the salt it was salty. I added some chopped scallions after my initial try and it was much tastier. Maybe some onions in the pan would be helpful. Doubt if I will make it again. Read More

Thought this sounded good as a side to go with some Tikka masala. Unfortunately I didn't have quite all the ingredients but I made the dish anyway. I am writing this review because reading how others have made recipes work for them is my favorite part about allrecipes. I did not have any potatoes so I carmelized about a 1/2 onion in the oil before adding the mustard seed. I then followed the actual recipe. Please note that I used kosher salt not table salt. The end result was okay just a little too sweet and oily but this is likely because of the caramelized onion and lack of potato. I added same garam masala for some more spice and crushed crackers to soak up the excess oil. The end results were good. I will be making this again hopefully with the potato but I think I will keep the onion garam masala reduce the sugar and add the scallion mentioned in the first review. Thank you for posting this recipe Read More

I wasn't a fan of this dish but my 10yo liked it and he normally doesn't care for cauliflower. The potato made the difference for him. I was surprised it didn't seem to have a lot of flavor. So I doubled the mustard seed and was a little heavy with the turmeric too. I even added chopped onion. I ended up adding an equal amount of cumin as well. 2 stars as is but even with my tweaks I'd only give this dish a low 3. Sorry but I won't make this one again. Read More

Oh my! So delicious. I used a partial head of yellow cauliflower and added some purple pepper (my Saturday public market finds!) but followed the rest of the ingredients as is. Yummy! Thanks I'll be making it again soon. Read More

I made change white sugar to coconut sugar. Kept pieces on biggish side so it would hold up to the stirring. I'll. Make it again and play with different spices. Yum Yum!! Read More

Didn’t follow recipe, please don’t condemn me for that, but I got the idea from this recipe. I never thought of mixing cauliflower and potatoes before I seen this recipe. Cut up potatoes and cauliflower and cooked in my wok, sprinkled chicken bullion on top with with white pepper. Took out of pan put into a bowl and sprinkled Parmesan cheese on top. I can’t say it was healthy, but it was delicious! My husband commented that he really liked the cauliflower and was surprised when he discovered that there was potatoes in it. I did over cook the potatoes a bit, but that might of added to it, not sure. Looked for leftovers the next day and it was all gone. Usually, cauliflower gets wasted because it seems like I’m the only one eating it in my house. Read More

I didn't have turmeric so I substituted curry. I'm not sure how much of a difference that makes but I thought the flavor was nice and it complimented the main dish of Indian Butter Chicken. Read More
