327

Cauliflower and sweet potatoes are very much a classic combination. This delicious dish can be a main meal with rice or bread. Also you can have this as a side dish. Ether way I love this cauliflower and sweet potato curry. Although it’s call cauliflower and sweet potato curry, I have added some more vegetables (Green bean and Pea) to give this dish a extra texture and flavor.

Which sweet potatoes should I choose?

There are so many different sweet potatoes, some sweet potatoes takes time to cook, some don’t, so it is important to know about the sweet potatoes that you are using. If it takes longer than usual, don’t cook the cauliflower first. Hold the cauliflower and wait about half way through to add the cauliflower.

How to cook cauliflower and sweet potato curry

Heat up a pan on a medium flame and add olive oil. Add onion, garlic, ginger, mustard and cumin and fry till onion turn in to brown. Stirring often and adjust the heat as necessary.

Then add tomatoes and chili. I have used vine tomatoes for this recipe. Cut the tomatoes into small cubes or chopped them. It will help the tomatoes to turn mushy quickly. Chili is optional. If you don’t like hot, you don’t want to use them. I found that chili is giving that extra kick for the recipe.

Once tomato is soften add cauliflower and stir for about 3 minutes. Then add the green bean, sweet potatoes, turmeric, garam masala and water. mix well and add salt & pepper and bring the water to boil.

Vegetable mix

Reduce the heat and cover the pan and simmer for about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally and add water if necessary.

After 15 minutes, check whether vegetables are properly cooked by using a sharp knife into the vegetables. If it goes in easily, then vegetables are cooked. Now add the pea and cashews and simmer for another 3 minutes. Taste the curry, add salt and pepper if necessary.

Don’t over cook your vegetables, they will lose their shape, texture and flavor. Just before serve, sprinkle some chopped coriander on the top. Enjoy your curry with rice or naan.
