Cauliflower with panch pooran


This is a quick, easy dish which works great as an accompaniment to dishes like the Korma or Phaal. It can be easily adapted to whatever ingredients you have in the fridge - try it with cabbage, courgette or beetroot.

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the panch pooran and fry for 1 minute until the seeds start to brown.
  2. Add the garlic and fry for 1 minute.
  3. Add the cauliflower and stir fry for 2 - 3 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle the turmeric over the top and add a splash of water to stop it burning.
  5. Cover with a lid and allow to cook for 3 - 4 minutes until the cauliflower is cooked through, but still has a little bite.
  6. Season with salt and a squeeze of lemon juice. Garnish with chopped, fresh coriander.
