Kochchi or demon chilli is considered to be one of the spiciest chilies around the world. In Sri Lanka, kochchi sambol is loved by almost everyone for its unmatched taste. You will be surprised if I tell you that kochchi contains anti-diabetic, anti-carcinogenic and anti-bacterial properties and it also protects our bodies from chemicals generated when we are stressed or depressed.
On the other note, cauliflower is packed with many health benefits, like weight loss, reducing risk of cancer, reducing brain and heart disorders etc. It should never be cooked for long if you want those nutrients to work.
This is a super simple recipe to enjoy both cauliflower and kochchi in a unique blend.
