These days, a lot of friends are into the Keto way of life. This means a strictly no-carb, high-protein, high-fat diet. While I don't binge on carbs on a daily basis, I don't think I can deal with a life without rice. Rice is comfort food for me, period.

On the 5-2 way of life, the two fast days in the week, I'm always looking at cooking foods that will not jump on the calorie meter and cauliflower rice is a blessing for such days. Add an egg, and it does make for a filling supper and all under 200 calories. YAY!

If you are on the Keto diet, 'cauliflower rice' can be made into any of the South Indian rice preparations, because you don't need to count the calories from certain fats like butter, the more the merrier (is what they say). But if you are making this to be on a low-cal diet or on a fast day of the 5-2 diet, then you do need to watch the calories from the oil as they add up pretty quickly.

To make this vegan, add crumbled tofu instead of egg.

Running the cauliflower in a food processor does make this easier. If you don't have a food processor, separate the cauliflower into large florets, wash and soak in salted water to clean. Grate on a box grater, but not on the very fine side.

This is the mini-food processor I use in my kitchen, that works well to 'rice' the cauliflower. I also use it to finely mince all the vegetables for this dish, which saves a lot of time and effort.
