Cauliflower and Potato Stir-Fry – East Indian Recipe

Sharing is caring!

This is a quick and delicious recipe that goes well with white rice by itself, or with white rice and lentils. Its filling and doesn’t require too much salt or oil. A drier version can be eaten with flat bread, naan, or pita. Reduce chili powder for a kid-friendly meal. Fast-cooking vegetables such as beans, peas and corn can be added for extra crunch and color. You can use white onion instead of the more pungent red if you prefer. If you find the vegetables catching bottom without being fully cooked, add half a cup of water and replace lid. Once cooked, remove lid and cook on very low till the water evaporates.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds fresh okra, sliced in 1/8 inch pieces
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 6 packets instant grits
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup oil for frying, or as needed

Directions:

Combine okra, tomato, and onion in a large bowl. Add the grits, eggs, salt, and pepper and blend together using your hands.

Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Form patties 2 1/2 inches in diameter, about 1/2 the size of a hamburger. Place the fritter in the pan and cook until golden brown, about five minutes. Flip with a spatula and cook until browned on the other side, about five minutes more. Remove and drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.
