I dunno about you but I always tend to fall back on Cauliflower cheese and get bored with it - plus it gets a bit fattening.

so how about a curry?

Cauliflower Curry

2 onion chopped
1cm fresh ginger grated (I used powder cos I never buy fresh)
2-4 tablespoons curry paste (I used Balti)
1 400g tin chopped toms (fresh even better)
1 400g coconut cream (I used those creamed coconut sachets)
2 potatoes in small cubes
1 cauliflower (chopped in small florets)
1 pack spinach (optional - I threw in a handful of frozen peas instead)
1 tablespoon washed lentils (optional but helps to thicken)
Juice of a lemon (optional I didn't bother)


In a little oil (I used coconut) gently fry onion till softening then add ginger and paste and cook a couple of minutes. Add toms, coconut, potato, and cauliflower (you may find pre-steaming the cauli helps - it depends on how you like your veg texture-wise) and bring to a simmer for 20 mins. Throw in the frozen peas (or spinach) and continue to cook for 10 mins then take off the heat and add lemon juice if desired and season with salt if liked.

Served with rice cooked with Turmeric and garlic naans.

Having left-overs for tea tonight and am putting in a tin of chick peas this time for added interest. My non-veggie husband enjoyed it and it made a change :3:

Thanks Philip - I can assure you I have not had wind today!!

Couldn't wait for tonight so just had some for late lunch and it tastes nicer today - seemed thicker so don't need to add chick peas after all. I have left some for Hungry Horace though and no doubt it will give HIM wind as every thing else does :lol:

The only ingredient difficult in Turkey would be the paste so I would try a mix of curry powder, coriander, cumin and chilli and if coconut is a problem just use cream.

Can get ginger in Tansas, Mirgos and Kipa now as well as the market - which is great it was always one of my things to bring from UK list!

Cauliflower is difficult to get hold of here now we are well into summer, might have to wait until sep/oct.

Every now & then fresh ginger is about, you can cube it & freeze it (so I have been told). After 5 years I am still looking for the kitchen in our villa, I know we have one because I bought the white goods.

Re: Cauliflower Curry/freezing ginger

You can also leave ginger in whole pieces, rinse it off and let it dry, freeze it whole-skin and all in a little baggie...When need it, use a grater and it grates really well frozen. Yes, you are also grating the skin but I never thought it altered the taste of food because it's so finely grated. Plus the skin is healthy and full of fiber.

Then quickly refreeze the rest of the piece. :hungry:
