Boil water with salt; add in the cauliflower florets and switch of the gas. Let the cauliflower florets soak in for nearly 5 minutes. Drain and keep aside.

(this is to get rid of any bugs that may be inside the heads; soak it in salt water or vinegar to force out any insects that may be lodged within the florets)

Chop cauliflower florets into small pieces.

Heat oil in a wide kadai; season it with cumin seeds and fennel seeds.

After it crackles add the onions, saute well and then add ginger garlic (finely chopped or paste) and tomatoes. Saute.

Add chopped cauliflower , spice powders and salt; mix well. Add very less water, as we chopped the cauliflower into small pieces, it will cook fast.

Close the pan with a lid; cook till the cauliflower becomes soft and water dries up.

Add the eggs along with chopped coriander leaves into the center of the pan, slowly mix in the cauliflower mixture till it blended well. 

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.


Instead of  cauliflower , you can try the same recipe with broccoli too..
