Enjoy cauliflower pulao made in iron wok for health benefits & the taste! Made with fried onions & bunch of Indian spices, this pulao is a keeper.
I bought my iron wok all the way from India and have recently started enjoying cooking in it. The health benefits of iron wok are many - with even heat distribution to the food, to the most important of iron rich meals.
In the video, I also share how I season it and how I don't wash my iron wok all the time and the reason behind this reasoning. Listen to it as it will help you take better care of your iron utensils.
Also, make sure to listen to the part where I share why I don't wash my organic produce - the reason is in the video.
