This is quick and delicious! Eat the cauliflower with plenty of naan or rice; it's especially delicious with a side of plain yogurt!

This dish is great! I've made several variations but my low carb favorite is to leave the cauliflower in chunks and replace the kidney beans with chopped celery hearts - adding them with the tomato! Sometimes I need to add a splash of water or wine vinegar to make sure the cauliflower steams properly. I also increased the spices a bit to make it even more flavorful! Read More

Not what I expected. Followed the recipe but was a little to dry. Maybe next time try some coconut milk like others. Read More

I give this four stars because the flavor was right-on but can't give a full five stars because the texture was not very curry-ish. It needed more sauce so I added a little bit of my own home-made curry sauce to it (potatoes garam masala ghee chickpea powder etc) and it was wonderful. I also added more cumin than suggested. Mmm.

Did not have kidney beans or tumeric on hand and added 1/3 of the veggie oil but the recipe was very enjoyable without these ingredients. A nice fresh flavor where the cauliflower can shine through. Would definitely make again. Nice and healthy. Read More

Garbanzo beans fit this meal better than kidney beans. Read More

This was a delicious way to eat cauliflower. We did not grate the cauliflower we used the florets and we did not add the beans. Would probably used another tomato for color the next time. Also halved the cayenne pepper. It was still spicy! And the garam masala was purchased from a specialty store. Don't leave it out. All in all we would make this again the next time we plan an Indian dinner. Thanks for a great recipe. Read More

My husband loved it.. although he said it would be better with ground beef but he thinks everything is better with meat. I didn't like it at all but I am not a curry lover like my husband. Read More

I was looking for an Indian side dish that was veggie based and low in calories to round out my main dishes. I made this recipe with the following changes: used a 19oz can of chickpeas instead of kidney beans; rather than cumin and coriander seeds I used the same amount ground. This recipe has a nice flavour but needed some extra liquid to cook properly. I just added water as I saw fit. White wine might also have been nice. My partner and I have been enjoying leftovers for the past few days - this dish is a nice side even if your main meal is not Indian. It is AMAZING with a good dab of plain yogurt and sprinkled with geram masala as other reviewers have suggested. Read More

Great recipe! I omitted the kidney beans and used a package of tofu instead (extra firm) - sauteed the chopped up tofu with the onions and spices until it was slightly browned. Delicious! Read More

I gave this 4 stars because as it was I felt it was lacking something. I followed the recipe exactly but wanted it to be more moist once it was nearly done cooking. So I added 1 tablespoon of butter and a couple of teaspoons of flower mixed it all up then added a bit of milk. Just enough to add a bit of moistness to the dish. This extra step made it nice and creamy. Very tasty! Thanks! Read More
