Chinese Special Fried Cauliflower Rice

To serve with my fakeaway Chinese Chicken Curry, I love to make a Special Fried Cauliflower Rice or Egg Fried Cauliflower Rice.

I must admit, that with fresh cauliflowers shrinking in size recently (or so it seems where I am) and the price remaining the same for these tiny palm sized whole cauliflowers, I often buy frozen cauliflower rice as I find it works out economical and I have cauliflower rice to hand when needed.

You can also purchase fresh cauliflower rice, but I find this can be quite expensive if you are feeding a few people.

It’s completely up to you which cauliflower you want to use, be it fresh cauliflower florets pulsed in a food processor, or pre-made fresh or frozen cauliflower rice. Use what works best for you!

You can of course omit the meats and prawns to create an egg fried rice instead, or add in some small diced vegetables to your liking.

Not a fan of cauliflower rice? Then just use cooked cooled basmati or brown wholegrain rice instead, but remember this significantly increases the carb content and so a small serving is best.
