Instructions

Air Fryer Instructions

  • Toss the cauliflower florets with curry powder, lemon juice, smoked paprika and salt.
  • Place seasoned cauliflower in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Make sure to leave some space between florets for air circulation.
  • Set air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 minutes. During these 12 minutes, toss and rotate the cauliflower half way through so it will crisp up evenly.
  • It should be golden brown and sizzling once done. Remove promptly and serve warm immediately.

Oven Instructions

  • Toss the cauliflower florets with curry powder, lemon juice, smoked paprika and salt.
  • Place seasoned cauliflower in a single layer on the baking tray. Make sure to leave some space between florets for air circulation.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook for 15 minutes tossing every 3-5 minutes so it crisp up evenly. It should be golden brown and sizzling once done. Serve warm immediately. Enjoy!

Instant Pot using a Air fryer lid/ Crisp Lid:

  • Arrange the seasoned cauliflower florets in a single layer on the basket. Place the basket on a trivet. Cover and secure the Instant Pot with the Air Fryer Lid.
  • Cook the cauliflower for 10-12 minutes at 190 C (375 F) until it is golden brown in color. Check halfway.

Notes

Oil or oil spray is optional. Use it for oven baking so the florets retain moisture when cooked under high heat. However, it will crisp up and taste delicious even if you don’t use it.
If you do not like curry powder flavors, you can use variety of other seasonings. Simple onion and garlic powder, Italian Seasoning, Cajun Spice Mix or Jamaican Jerk Seasoning are great choices. Ranch or honey mustard also works beautifully.
