My youngest sons most requested side dish when we eat curry. He loves the left-overs hot or cold too.

- 1 medium cauliflower

- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
- Boil the potatoes in their skins and allow to cool.
- Peel the potatoes and cut them into 2 inch squares.
- Blanch the cauliflower in boiling water for 2 minutes-do not over boil the cauliflower as it should still be firm after cooking.
- Cut into small florets.
- Heat the oil over medium heat in a wide frypan.
- Add the mustard seeds and as soon as they begin popping, add the cumin and fenugreek seeds and then the red chillies.
- Add the onion and the green chilli, stir and fry until the onions are golden brown-8-10 minutes.
- Add the cauliflower, reduce the heat to low, cover the pan and cook for 6-8 minutes.
- Add the potatoes, dried spices and salt.

- Cover the pan and cook til the potatoes are heated through-6-8 minutes.
