Beetroot and Cauliflower Curry Recipe

Nisha Katona says: 'Packed with flavour and interest, this is an ode to wintery veg. And just look at that colour! With a squeeze of lemon juice added at the end for a bit of lift, this is a gorgeous curry for colder days.'


3–4 as a side or 2 as a main



1. Heat the oil in a wide pan that has a lid over a medium heat. When hot, add the panch phoron and cook until the nuggets of fenugreek seeds begin to turn golden, then add the chilli and beetroot and cook, covered, for 6–8 minutes, or until starting to soften.

2. Add the cauliflower florets, chopped cauliflower leaves, chopped tomatoes, ground spices, chilli powder, salt, sugar and hot water, then cover again and cook for a further 10–12 minutes, or until everything is cooked through.

3. Finish with the lemon juice and garam masala, and taste for seasoning.

4. Serve garnished with the chopped coriander.
