One-Pot Meals are always easy to make for a weekday meal or for lunchbox. If they have some incredibly healthy vegetables in them, then it is a bonus making the meal a complete, wholesome one. Cauliflower is one such vegetable that has low calorie, but high in fiber. Cauliflower is also anti-oxidant rich that protects inflammation of body parts.

I made this cauliflower Pulav after seeing the recipe from a cookbook that was shared by mom. My family loves this mildly flavored Cauliflower Pulav. We pair this with some Paneer curry or Mixed vegetable Kurma. The Pulav is so flavorful, mildly spiced, and makes a wholesome meal on a busy day. Try this Cauliflower Pulav with any curry of your choice.
