It’s no surprise we love a good curry. We often have a curry night and do a range of dishes that we all tuck into bits of each and then sit in a food coma for the rest of the day.
We enjoy this with some sticky jasmine rice and naan bread for a tasty midweek meal. It also freezes well too so this recipe makes a nice big batch ideal for batch cooking and having plenty for lunches/dinners another day.
Some recommended items from our kitchen for making this dish…
- Family size multi function cooker.
- A decent set of knives for chopping, with a knife sharpener which is always handy.
- Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
- Garlic crusher, we have had this one for a good while, easy to clean and can crush multiple cloves at once saving time.
- We use a NUTRiBULLET to blend and mix a lot of our recipes, its easy to clean and store and affordable. Also great if you are into health and fitness and have lots of shakes and smoothies. Also great for making iced tea/coffee so is widely used and not just a kitchen ornament like a lot of appliances.

Keep an eye the cauliflower doesn’t burn.
