Ingredients

  • One 2 to 2 1/2-pound head cauliflower, cut into bite-size florets (about 4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup melted ghee 
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons salt, plus more to taste 
  • 1 1/2 pounds unpeeled assorted baby potatoes, such as white-skinned, red-skinned and purple, quartered 
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar 
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen and thawed peas 
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro 
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh mint leaves 
  • 2 tablespoons fresh minced ginger 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1 small white onion, finely diced
  • Cilantro Emulsion, recipe follows
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste 
Cilantro Emulsion:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste 
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves 
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger 
  • 1 clove garlic, minced 
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper 
  • 1 cup olive oil

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. 

Toss the cauliflower with the ghee, curry powder and 2 teaspoons of the salt, and then transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet. Roast until just tender and slightly charred, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. 

Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with 3 inches of cold water. Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with the white wine vinegar and let cool slightly.

Combine the potatoes and cauliflower in a large bowl. Toss with the peas, cilantro, mint, ginger, garlic, onions and Cilantro Emulsion until thoroughly combined. Season with more salt and pepper, if needed, and serve. 

For Cilantro Emulsion: Bring 1 quart water to a boil with the salt in a small saucepan. Add the egg (still in the shell) and simmer over moderately high heat, 5 minutes. 

Transfer the egg to a bowl of cold water using a slotted spoon and let stand 3 to 4 minutes. Crack the egg all over and gently peel under warm running water, keeping it whole. 

Combine the poached egg with the cilantro, lemon juice, ginger and garlic in a blender. With the blender running, slowly begin drizzling in the olive oil until emulsified. Season with the white pepper and more salt, if needed.
