I actually timed the making of this dish from the moment I pressed 'go' on the rice cooker. In 35 minutes we were sitting down to eat! This is a great recipe, and as the other reviewers found, even though the list of spices may look long it comes together very easily. I saved some washing up by steaming the cauli & carrot in the steamer basket of the rice cooker. I was leary about steaming the veg separately, it's just not something I normally do - but it works out so nicely you should try it. The flavours in the curry are mild, but you can obviously heat that up as much as you like. For so-so curry fans, this is a nice light version, and very kid friendly. Thanks Debbwl - fantastic!

Wow. This was truly easy, even given the number of spices in the curry mix. I love cauliflower, but is can be kind of bland. This really wakes it up, and gives it a flavor worth looking forward to. A nice warm mix of spices, not crazy hot (although you can make it that way if you want), adds a lot of flavor to the cauliflower without actually masking it's own flavor. I'll definitely make again!

The colors in this dish are beautiful! This came together very easily and there wasn't a chance to overcook the veggies - something I usually have a problem with :) My husband loved this even though he thought he wasn't a big fan of curry - he is so confused. Thanks for posting this one!! Made for Veg*n Swap 23!!
