Rice is one of the most staple food item for most of the people in this world.  Especially for me, I used to love eating rice in lunch as well as dinner.  Rice serves as a perfect complement for any spicy curry or sauce.  Unfortunately rice is not a very healthy option for weight loss.  It is full of starch and carbohydrates.  Hence the biggest challenge I faced when I started clean eating was giving up my daily rice. But thanks to this simple cauliflower rice recipe, I haven’t eaten rice for last 9 months.

Cauliflower Rice is one the best alternatives to regular rice or even brown rice as it is rich in vitamin C, Fiber and also works as anti-oxidant.  I use cauliflower rice as rice substitute for curries as well as for rice based dishes like Biryani, Nasi Goreng, Fried Rice etc.
