  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 tsp cilantro/coriander stems chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger grated or ginger paste
  • 2-3 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tbsp curry powder of your choice
  • 1 tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1 cauliflower head broken into florets
  • 1 X400g/14 oz can chopped tomatoes
  • water
  • 2-3 small potatoes peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 1 X400g/14oz can chickpeas drained
  • salt to taste
  • cilantro/coriander leaves chopped
  • 1 tsp garam masala


  • Heat the oil in a deep and large pan and saute chopped onion, minced cilantro stems (they add much flavour), grated ginger and minced garlic over low heat for 5-7 minutes. Add the curry powder of your choice and stir to combine until you smell the curry aroma, add the chilli flakes.
  • To the same pan add the cauliflower florets, canned chopped tomatoes, then fill the empty tomato can with water and pour it into the pan, then add potatoes, chickpeas, a pinch of salt and bring to a boil, then cover with a lid and cook on medium heat for 15 minutes.
  • Take the lid off and add chopped cilantro/coriander leaves, stir to combine and cook uncovered on medium-high for 10 minutes longer or until desired consistency. The curry shouldn't be watery but should form a thick tomato based sauce around the vegetables. Taste and add salt if needed. Then sprinkle with 1 tsp of garam masala.
  • Serve with rice, flatbreads and chutney.
