Idea: heat oil, add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, dahl. (this is an indian seasoning blend, mix lots of cumin seeds, mustard seeds and dahl together, then use like 1 tsp of this blend)

Then add the veggies. Add salt, a little turmeric, some chilli powder.

Done. That's just my idea, cause my indian friends's mom fries fantastic cauliflower with this method, so I thought it'll work.

Try it! I wanted to try it out on cauliflower.

Oh sorry. I forgot. Add a few curry leaves too. Where can I buy curry leaves?

Curry leaves, okie, no problem.

Supermarket, you can get them. Wet market - veg stall, 10-20 cents is a lot.

Just hold the end of the sprig with your thumb and finger, and then there you go - just "run along" to the end. The leaves will drop automatically, very fast and fun.

Cheer :)
