How to Make Chickpea and cauliflower curry
less than 30 mins
10 to 30 mins
- 1 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil
- 1 small onion
- 1 garlic
- 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
- 1 tbsp medium or madras curry powder
- 2 tsp ground turmeric
- 400g tin light coconut milk
- 1 small cauliflower
- 400g tin chickpeas
- 1 lemon
Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the onion for 5 minutes until softened. Add the garlic and ginger and fry for 2 minutes, then stir in the spices and cook for 30 seconds.
Add the coconut milk, cauliflower and the tin of chickpeas, liquid and all. Partially cover the pan and bring to the boil, then simmer for about 8 minutes until the cauliflower is tender and the sauce has thickened. If the sauce reduces too much before the cauliflower is ready, splash in some water. Or if the cauliflower is nearly done and the sauce is too thin, take the lid off to allow the sauce to reduce.
Squeeze in the juice from one or two lemon wedges, to taste. The curry shouldn’t need any salt.
To serve, scatter with chilli if you like it hot, coriander if you like it mild, or a bit of both. Serve with rice or naan bread and extra lemon wedges.
