What to Cook: Vegetarian Goan Cauliflower Curry

Goan Cauliflower Curry

You wouldn't expect it, but this dish actually has no cream in it. By using just flour and milk, you can create an amazingly rich and creamy sauce with a fraction of the calories, without compromising on eating the food you love.

To make 1 portion

1/4 cauliflower
1/4 white onion, sliced
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp plain flour
200ml milk
handful of spinach
olive oil
salt and pepper

Cut the cauliflower into individual florets and gently pan-fry them with the onion in a splash of olive oil over a medium heat. After about 5 minutes, add the curry powder, turmeric and flour, season well with salt and pepper then fry for a further minute until the onion is soft.


Slowly add the milk, stirring to create a sauce, then simmer gently for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

One minute before serving, add the spinach and stir it into the sauce, allowing it to wilt slightly.

Serve in a shallow bowl and enjoy.
