Serves: 4-6 // Preparation time: 15 minutes // Cooking time: 30 minutes

1 medium-sized cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets
2 tbsp sunflower oil
3 onions, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp ground fenugreek
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp fennel seed
1 tsp cumin seeds
400g tin plum tomatoes
400g tin chickpeas
1 green chilli, sliced
Handful of coriander, chopped
Salt and black pepper


Cook the cauliflower in salted boiling water until nearly
cooked, then drain.

Meanwhile, heat the oil and fry the onion and garlic on a
gentle heat for about 5 minutes. Once soft, add the ginger
and other spices, stir and cook for a further 2 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and chickpeas to the onion mix. Cook on a medium heat to reduce the liquid slightly.

Add the cauliflower and sliced chilli.

Cook for 10 minutes on a low heat, stirring occasionally.

Stir in the coriander, season to taste and serve.
