Directions

Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. When hot, add the cumin. As soon as the seeds begin to pop, stir in the tomato puree and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in the potatoes and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the salt, reduce the heat to low and cook, covered, until the outer layer of the potato is cooked, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the cauliflower, ginger, coriander, turmeric, cayenne and the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and stir it all together without damaging the florets. Cover and cook until the cauliflower is tender, 15 to 20 minutes, adding 1/2 cup of the cilantro during the final minutes of cooking. Serve garnished with the remaining 1/2 cup cilantro.

    Since I'd never eaten this before I didn't know what to expect, but I do love me some curry and that's a must here. Pay special attention to temp settings so as not to dry out the pan...I did add a splash of vegetable broth toward the end to help steam the cauliflower better. Also used 5T coconut oil and 3T tomato paste. Exotic and delicious served alongside basmati rice. A slight change next time would be to reduce cayenne to 1 teaspoon...I used two and that really heated things up! It got my nose running :)
    Bonus...my man liked it too!

    This is too dry. Is there an ingredient missing such as water? The spices did not stir evenly into the mixture.
