Lentil & Cauliflower Coconut Curry
I love love love this recipe! All my favourite veggies and Indian flavours in one gloriously delicious bowl of goodness.
I’m sure I’ve said it before but Andy and I probably eat a few too many curries from the amazing Indian restaurants around Birmingham. The choice, variety and quality is fantastic and we have three favourites which we go to all the time. But I think that with a little bit of effort you can create delicious and nourishing Indian food at home. Like my Lentil and Coconut Curry with sweet potato, cauliflower and aubergine. I absolutely love cauliflower in curry and sweet potato works so well too. This is curry isn’t too spicy just really fragrant as its topped with the super tasty temper (caramelised onions and spices) – this is seriously good.
OK so I’m not saying it as good as our favourite restaurants delicious curry but it certainly meets all my curry cravings – hurray!
