Cauliflower Korma

IMG_0433

Whenever I buy cauliflower, I usually make peas and cauliflower curry or a potato and cauliflower curry  but I was looking forward to making cauliflower korma for a change.  A colleague told me that I could get ready made korma sauce from the supermarket but I wanted to create my own korma sauce  using my dad’s recipe.

  • Ingredients
  • 2 cups cauliflower
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 small onions (one to add to the korma sauce and one chopped for the curry)
  • 1 cup fresh tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 cup passata
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • 4tbls dessicated coconut
  • 10-12 cashews
  • 10 -12 peanuts
  • 3-4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 green chilies cut lengthwise
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsps cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
