Cauliflower Curry With Chickpeas

June 15, 2020
It is a common fact of me that I am obsessed with curries. I think I could eat them at any time in all quantities. The best thing about curries is that once you've learned a basic recipe, you can make it with different vegetables each time so it will be never boring. Normally I like to stick with chickpeas and coconut cream, but I choose different vegetables every time.

Today I made it with some cauliflowers. It was my first time cooking a cauliflower curry but definitely not the last. The cauliflower tasted so good with the mixture of curry spices especially because it was first baked. Making a cauliflower curry is a great way to eat some cauliflowers even for people who don’t like it that much.

1. Cut the cauliflower into small pieces and put them in the oven for 30 minutes.

2. During this time we can start to make the curry. Chop the onion into smaller peaces. Heat the olive oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté gently. When the onion gets translucent add the spices into the pot. You can add all except the salt: curry, kurkuma, cumin, garam masala, sweet red pepper.

3. Peel the carrots and chop them. Around 5 minutes later you can add the carrot into the curry.

4. When the carrot becomes soft you can add the canned chickpea into the pot. You can also add some water if you need. If you use dry chickpeas you have to cook them before.

5. When you’re done the cauliflower should be ready too in the oven so you can transfer it into the pot.

6. Finally add the coconut cream with the salt and mix it well.

I cooked some rice with it but you can enjoy it with any type of grains.
