Cauliflower poha (Low-carb, KETO recipe)

Recipe adapted from here
Cauliflower rice- 300 gms, one medium head of cauliflower 
Peanuts- skinless, around 3 tbsp

To cook
Ghee- 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Dried red chilli- 1
Curry leaves- 1 large sprig
Onion- 1 medium size, finely diced
Ginger- 1 tsp (optional)
Green chilli- 1 small (adjust according to heat)
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Salt-- to taste
Coriander leaves- to garnish
Slice the cauliflower into big chunks and use a food processor or grater to mince them to resemble fine rice or couscous.
In a large frying pan, dry roast the peanuts to a golden brown. Keep aside.

Into the same frying pan, melt the ghee and once hot throw in the mustard seeds.
Once they crackle, add the dried red chilli and curry leaves and saute for a few seconds.
Add the onions, ginger, green chilli and turmeric, season with some salt and cook for a few minutes, till the onions become soft.
Tip in the peanuts and give a good mix.
Finally, add the minced cauliflower, and mix it all together.
Season with salt, add a dash of water, and cover and cook on medium heat for about 5 to 6 minutes.
Keep checking in between and give a mix so that it doesn't stick to the pan.
Once the cauliflower is cooked, remove from heat and generously garnish with coriander leaves,
Mix before serving
I served this with Sri Lankan egg curry
