Good dish, I like things highly spiced, so probably added about 4 teaspoons of Hot Madras Curry Powder to this (I am sure other spices would work well with it too).

I am not a huge fan of curry but this was very good. It smelled so good while it was cooking and everyone seemed to enjoy it. I think I would decrease the amount of oil next time. I also think that I would put the tomatoes in just a couple of minutes before serving so that it was just enough to heat them through allowing them to release some of their juices. This was made for ZWT4. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Am always looking for new ways to dress up cauliflower, & here's a great way to do just that! I do have some of my own homemade curry powder but decided to go with French Tart's Bo-Kaap Cape Malay Curry Powder - South African Spice Mixture! Anyway, this cauliflower tastes ABSOLUTELY GREAT, & I'll be making it again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed while touring Africa on Zaar World Tour 4]
