Cauliflower & Coriander Curry


Curries are forever a welcomed splendour in an Indian family. At least one type of curry must appear on the dining table a day, otherwise, a meal will not go down well for the family members. I guess that's how it has been from ancient years, and curries are generally packed with lotsa spices, for the non-vegetarian (Fish Sambar, Pumpkin Salted Fish Curry, Pepper Mutton Curry & Pepper Tamarind Prawns) and vegetarian version (Vegetarian Mutton Curry) as well. Curries basically can be paired with most side dishes (Curry Leaves Valakkai Poriyal & Potatoes Dried Chillies), of course we are also talking about rice (Ghee Rice/Nei Choru & Cumin Rice). This cauliflower coriander curry is also about spices, but slightly different though as per the technic. Please read on how to make this aromatic, spicy and tangy  curry.


Ingredients
To blend/ground for a paste
1/2 inch ginger
5 garlic
6 shallots
2 stalks coriander leaves (cut the roots but do include the stems)

Other ingredients
1/2 (about 280g) cauliflower - cut into bite size florets
2 tbsp curry powder (or as per taste)
1 1/2 tbsp tomato puree or chopped tomato
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp mustard seeds
2 sprigs curry leaves
1/2 tbsp lime juice
4 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

Method:
Mix curry powder and tomato puree with the blended paste.
Keep aside
In heated oil, fry cumin seeds,  mustard seeds and curry paste till aromatic and oil splits. 
Pour 1/2 liter of water and add curry leaves.
Season with salt.
Simmer to heat through.
Add caulis and lime juice.
Simmer to soften and remove from heat.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!

  2. The curry sounds wonderful, I love the eating dishes where the cauliflower still has a bit of bite to it and I would imagine in a curry it would be a nice contrast.
