Spicy Cauliflower Curry

Spicy Cauliflower Curry

This cauliflower curry is a beautiful, flavorful dish. Even if you’re not that fond of cauliflower, you need to try this dish. Trust me.  It’s delicious and packed with bold flavors.

A few things to note…

I prefer to use a wok to cook the cauliflower in because I find it cooks it faster and makes it a little crispy. If you don’t have a wok, a saucepan will work just fine.

I opted for peanut oil for a change from olive oil – I love it’s bold flavor for this dish – but feel free to use any oil.

The cauliflower curry is great to make during the week because it’s easy to prepare and filling. So you can try pairing it with a mild fish or meat. I like to have it over green greens and quinoa and make a little quinoa bowl for quick weeknight meals.
