Cauliflower curry

Cauliflower curry is a long-awaited post since easter. I wanted to post it before easter. But then got busy and followed by fever after easter. It’s a tasty recipe, even when am typing about it am all excited. This is a great freezer recipe to make ahead for weekday nights and its one of the quick recipes.

It has a few handful of ingredients for a mouth-watering recipe and can be made in 20-30 mins.


1 large red or yellow onion chopped

2 medium-sized tomatoes chopped

1 tbsp of ginger-garlic paste

1 tsp of cashew paste

2 cups of cauliflower, bite size

1 pinch of turmeric

1 tsp of cumin, coriander, garam masala and chili powder each

Handfull of cilantro, chopped

Salt to taste



Bring 3 cups of water to boil.

Add chopped onion to a skillet on medium flame with some oil. Add a pinch of salt and let the onions caramelize a little. It might take about 6-7 mins. Using yellow onion makes the dish look pretty.

Add the cauliflower to boiling water with salt and turmeric powder. Let it cook for about 5 mins.

Add ginger garlic paste to onions and cook for about 5 mins. ( Till the raw smell has gone)

Add tomatoes and let it cook. Finally add all the spice powders and saute it for about 2 mins.

Finally add the cooked cauliflower and simmer for 5 more mins. Stir now and then. Mix in the cashew paste and add salt to taste. Let it simmer for five more mins and serve hot.

Cashew paste – soak it over night and grind or just soak in hot water for ten mins and grind.

Ginger-Garlic paste – equal amounts of ginger and garlic + 1 tsp of oil. Grind it to a fine paste.

Both pastes can be made before hand and stored in refrigerator.(In an airtight container or in an ice cube tray in freezer).
