Step 1: In a pan heat the oil and add mustard seeds, add the curry leaves once the seeds pop.

Step 2: The curry leaves will crisp within seconds, add riced cauliflower quickly.

Step 3: Add salt, turmeric powder, red chili powder and mix.

Step 4: Sprinkle little water, cover the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes. Make sure to not over cook riced Cauliflower as that can get soggy and ruin the texture. If you use frozen caulirice, reduce the minutes to cook as it gets cooked partially while defrosting.

Step 5: Remove from flame, add lemon juice and mix. Serve hot.
