Kashmiri Cauliflower and Potato Curry

A Kashmiri-style version of a classic curry 

This lovely mellow curry is quite easy to make - steaming the potato and part-steaming the cauliflower makes it quicker and also reduces the amount of oil. Just get all the ingredients out before you start cooking and go for it!

Omit the cashew garnish for a nut-free option.


  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped into medium-small pieces
  • 1 large onion
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 5cm/2 inch piece ginger, peeled and grated
  • 3 medium tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp oil, plain
  • 1 large cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • ½ -1 tsp cayenne pepper, according to taste
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom seeds
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp sugar or 2 tsp agave syrup
  • 1 tsp salt


  • 30g/1oz roasted cashews
  • 30g/1oz raisins


1. Steam the potatoes for 10-15 minutes, until tender but not mushy.

2. Add the cauliflower pieces to the steamer about 5 minutes before the end – you want to just tenderise the cauliflower, not cook it completely.

3. Blend the onion, garlic, ginger and tomatoes until they form a purée.

4. Heat the oil in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan and sauté the cauliflower until it starts to brown and is tender. Remove it from the pan and set aside.

5. Using the same saucepan, fry the tomato/ginger/garlic purée with the turmeric and cayenne for a minute or two. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook in for a few seconds, stirring well.

6. Return the cauliflower plus the potatoes to this mixture and stir gently, ensuring everything is well-coated in the mixture and heated through properly.

7. Garnish with the cashews and raisins. Serve with rice and/or chapattis
