Recipe Notes

Use a food processor or a grater to make the cauliflower rice. Using these will ensure that the result is rice like and not a paste of cauliflower.

You can increase or decrease the amount of paprika according to you liking.

You can add Shrimps, shredded chicken or eggs to your rice if you wish to.
