Add 2 tablespoons of oil to a frying pan on medium heat. Add half of the chopped bell pepper and stir fry with a flat spatula until bell pepper is cooked. Remove the mixture and place it in a small bowl.

Step 2

Add 2 tablespoons oil to the same frying pan. When oil is hot, add onions, half the chopped bell pepper, garlic and half a teaspoon salt. Stir fry for 5 minutes or until onion is cooked.

Step 3

Add cauliflower pieces, turmeric and half a teaspoon salt. Sprinkle a tablespoon of water, mix well and cook for 5 more minutes until cauliflower is cooked but firm. Do not overcook. Cauliflower cooks fast.
