In conjunction with Coeliac Awareness Week which runs between 11th – 17th May, raising awareness and support for an autoimmune disease with symptoms often triggered by gluten, author, journalist and blogger – Mira Manek has shared some delicious Gluten-free recipes of her own.

And with Gluten-free diets now more popular than ever, it’s refreshing to find some interesting and (most importantly) delicious recipes that will be available in Manek’s cookbook Green Daal Stories that is set to revolutionise Indian cooking upon its release later in the year.

Why not have a go at Mira’s Cauliflower Rice with Coconut and Cumin recipe for yourself?


Cauliflower Rice with Coconut and Cumin


1 cauliflower, shredded/ very finely chopped

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 teaspoon cumin seeds

1 tablespoon ginger, garlic, chilli paste or just freshly chopped ginger

10 curry leaves

½ teaspoon turmeric

½ teaspoon coriander powder, optional

½ teaspoon cumin powder, optional

2-3 tablespoons coconut flakes

handful coriander



Start by finely grating the cauliflower or using a food processor to evenly and finely chop. Place the oil and cumin seeds in a pan on low heat and wait until the cumin is brown. Now add the ginger, garlic and chilli paste. You can alternatively grate some fresh ginger – without garlic and chilli – if you prefer. Add the curry leaves and then the chopped cauliflower. Stir for a minute before adding the turmeric, coriander and cumin powders as well as the coconut flakes. Add the coriander leaves, mix thoroughly for another minute and serve with a sprinkle of coconut flakes.
