Quick cauliflower and potato curry

I fancied something simple and veggie last night, so a light curry seemed to be the thing.

Starting to simmer

In hindsight, I should have used a recipe, rather than faffing and experimenting. The dollop of yogurt at the end was a definite mistake, for instance, but the flavours shook out ok.

I fried an onion off with the florets of cauliflower, adding ginger and garlic, and chilli as the onion looked like it was heading for done. Then I threw in some spices, which is the point at which i really should have grabbed a notebook. I’;m fairly sure it was about a teaspoon each of cumin and mustard seeds, and tumeric; along with a pinch of fennel seeds, some smoked paprika, fenugreek, and cinnamon. Were I guessing, I’d say about half a teaspoon each of those last three.

Fry the spices, throw in a couple of chopped tomatoes, diced potato, and some stock, then simmer until broadly functional.

I decided to go with a splodge of yogurt to thicken slightly. It didn’t work, as you can see from the pictures.

The finished thing

It would have benefited from something on the side, I think, or perhaps the addition of spinach.

Oh well – lessons and what have you.
