Cauliflower Curry

How would you personally define vegetarianism? Does it mean vegetarianism is the way to holiness and healthiness? I am actually quite confused (Gado Gado, Mee Rojak Vegetarian, Corn Soup & Pumpkin Soup). I am not sure too. Why do people generally look up at vegetarians? Look, I am not saying you must look down on them, but  trust me, there are rolly-polly vegetarians and not necessarily they are the most humbles religious people (Indian Tofu Curry, Chilli Aloo & Sambar). I personally know of stinking vegetarians. Nevertheless, in all fairness, we should sum all vegetarians as, whatever you like to call them. Being a vegetarian is basically our choice for whatever reasons own best to us instead of? How about in my house are you asking? We are definitely not vegetarians, but our daily meals definitely consists of at least a single or two vegetarian dishes (Vegetarian Mutton Curry, Indian Vegetable Curry, Yam Basket Vegetarian & Spinach Sambar). This cauliflower curry (Aloo Gobi), don't you think speaks for itself. Obviously, a vegetarian version obvious. Aromatic, spicy and tangy. 

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

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.


  1. I'm going to try this meal this weekend :) thanks 4 the recipe.

  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.

  3. thank you so much every for all the sharing, actually my hubby is more into curries, I am fine with anything, not take particular about food.

  4. I'm very serious when I say, I am definitely going to try this recipe in the next week or so! I might even make it for my parents and surprise them! :)

  5. The curry looks so delectable, I haven't tried all-vegetable curry yet, but this looks really healthy and delectable as well.

    Thanks for sharing!
