How to Make Whole Cauliflower And Minve Bake

  • Trim the main stalk of the cauliflower as close as possible to the flower head, taking care not to cut it.
  • Wash the mince and keep aside to drain.
  • Soak the whole cauliflower in warm salted water for 1 hour. Wash well.
  • Parboil the whole cauliflower for about 5 -6 minutes till just tender. Drain and keep aside.
  • Sprinkle a little salt over the sliced onions and keep aside.
  • Cook the mince in a little water for about 10 minutes till the water dries up.
  • Grind the cooked mince together with the bread, coriander leaves, mint, pepper, salt, green chillies and vinegar to a paste.
  • Stuff small quantities of this paste in to the spaces b/w the florets and spread the remaining paste evenly all over the cauliflower.
  • Rub the onion slices together well and squeeze to as much water as possible from them.
  • With greased hands, press the onion slices all over the mince paste covered cauliflower and par well for a smooth finish.
  • Put the cauliflower in a greased, fairly deep baking dish and drizzle oil well over it.
  • Bake in a moderate oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour till the onions are brown and crisp and the mince covering turns a nice brown all over.
  • Serve with tomato sauce and steamed vegetables.
