Making Cauli rice
  1. I've taken medium-sized cauliflower. Separate the florets & soak in warm water for 15 minutes, that way any tiny bugs will be released into the water.

  3. Place a wok over medium heat.
  4. Add sesame oil, ginger-garlic; saute till light golden.
  5. Add green onions, saute for 2 minutes.

  8. Add green pepper, stir fry.
  9. Add the grated cauliflower, stir fry.
  10. Cook covered for 5 minutes.
  11. If it's turning dry, add water & stir fry till cauliflower turns soft.
  12. Increase the heat to high, stir fry till cauliflower turns light golden brown.
  13. Add the sauces, stir fry for 2 minutes.
  14. Add sesame seeds, cilantro & lemon juice, stir fry for a minute.
  15. Finally, add sesame oil. Give everything a fabulous mix.
  16. Remove the wok from the heat, keep it covered.
Making Air fried salmon
  1. I've taken 2 salmon steaks, any kind of fish can be used.
  2. Add all the spices mentioned 'for marinating salmon' along with lemon juice, spread over the salmon.

  6. Place the broil tray into the air fryer basket.
