Cauliflower Thoran

Thoran is a traditional dish made from vegetables usually cooked with coconut and spices and is taken along with rice.
Thoran in a malayali household is usually made with any kind of vegetables however cauliflower is a vegetables not very authentic to mallu food. You would not find this vegetable in any of the authentic kerala dishes. But cauliflower happens to be a favourite in our house my husband and Adhya love this cauliflower thoran that I make. Adhya even loves this vegetable just boiled on its own and Alan does not seem to mind if I mix it in his rice. Its a very simple, easy, quick and my very own thoran recipe. You can make this without the coconut also. If you are a cauliflower lover too you have to try this.

Cauliflower thoran recipe:



  1. Nostalgic feeling seeing the thakali and murungyakka curry. Remember our Sunday lunch post church.

  2. Cauliflower thoran, interesting. Will try it for sure.

  3. I like the idea of chopping the cauliflower florets fine.. What we normally stick to, as part of practice, is just take them off the stalk and leave them as single florets. I will try this finely chopped way.

  4. Chopping them fine helps them cook faster ...sometimes it even keeps your guest guessing what vegetable it is ..!

  5. cumin seeds is not mentioned

  6. Sorry have corrected it now
