South Indian Coconut Cauliflower Rice

I have always been a huge fan of Indian food. Growing up, whenever we went into Manhattan we always had to stop for dinner at an Indian restaurant. There’s so many things to love about Indian food, that I often try to recreate some of those dishes at home. One of my favorite sides to order is coconut rice. It’s creamy and bursting with flavor and of course… rice! Now that we eat a mostly Paleo diet, I wanted to recreate this beloved side at home using cauli rice and the spices I have on hand. It’s totally possible to create a tasty Indian inspired dish using spices you already have or can find at a conventional grocery store. This recipe is a great side for any curry dish or on it’s own! You could even add chicken or shrimp to make it a whole meal! Enjoy and let me know on Instagram and in the comments if you make it!
