Brown the cauliflower thoroughly at the start here – it’s a simple way to give this vegetarian curry some more character and greater depth of flavour. Then to add some more body, try replacing the water with coconut milk.



1.Preheat the oven grill to high. Toss cauliflower with half the ghee in a bowl, season to taste, spread out on a lightly greased oven tray and grill, turning occasionally, until golden and slightly charred (8-10 minutes).
2.Meanwhile, heat remaining ghee in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add curry leaves, onion, garlic, chilli and ginger, season to taste, and stir occasionally until softened and golden (5-7 minutes). Add spices, stir until fragrant (1 minute), then add tomatoes and 400ml water and simmer until slightly reduced and flavours develop (6-8 minutes). Add cauliflower and stir until heated through (1-2 minutes), season to taste and serve with rice, red onion, lime wedges and yoghurt.
