What to eat this week: Kerala vegan cauliflower curry


by Meg Walker
28th Jul 2021

This vegan curry is simple, hearty and quick – the perfect weeknight dinner.

Cauliflower makes a fantastic curry ingredient, as its gentle flavour allows for all the spices to infuse through it, so every bite is as delicious as the next. This dish has a delicate blend of spices, which you can adjust to your own preferences.

You can find cooked Puy lentils in ready-to-use packs available from most supermarkets, making them a super-speedy addition to this flavoursome curry.

Kerala Cauliflower Curry
Serves 2 generously

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 1 red fresh chilli, finely chopped
  • 2cm piece of ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp ground turmeric
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 400ml tin full-fat coconut milk
  • 150ml hot water
  • 1 small cauliflower, cut into bite-size florets
  • 2 large flatbreads (optional)
  • 200g cooked Puy lentils
  • handful of fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • generous pinch of sea salt
  • 1 fresh red chilli, finely sliced


Method
Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add the onions, chilli, and ginger to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until the onions soften but do not brown. Add the garlic, then stir through the turmeric, garam masala, ground cumin, and cumin seeds, cooking for a further minute.

Pour in the coconut milk and hot water and allow to simmer. Add the cauliflower to the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes, then increase the heat to medium-high until the cauliflower is al dente.

Grill the flatbreads, if using, for one minute on each side in a griddle plan. Tip the lentils into the pan and stir through. Remove the pan from the heat and scatter with the coriander, sea salt and extra chilli just before serving.
