Tasty good stuff

Top Review by Jo_C.

I made this last night as I had half a large cauliflower to use up and this recipe contained it and several other of our favourite ingredients. I only used about 2 tsp of curry and cumin powders and 1/4 tsp of chili powder (I think what you get in the US must be a spice blend - mine is pure dried chillies) and it was quite hot. I also fried the onion and garlic in 1 tbsp olive oil at the start since I don't have a problem with using such a small amount of oil in a recipe that ended up making 6 servings. The dish ended up wetter than a stew, and was more of a chunky soup. It was fine, but just not particularly interesting.
