Categories     dinner, one pot, main course

Time 40m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 10

2 tablespoons neutral oil, like canola or grape seed
1/2 cup minced onion
1 head cauliflower, about 2 pounds
1 tablespoon cumin seed
2 teaspoons curry powder, or to taste
5 or 6 canned plum tomatoes, with juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pound boneless chicken, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
Juice of 1 lemon
Minced cilantro or parsley for garnish, optional


  • Put the oil in a 12-inch skillet, and turn the heat to high; add the onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to brown. While it's cooking, trim the cauliflower and cut the florets into 1/2-inch-thick pieces.
  • When the onion has browned a little, add the cumin seed and curry powder and cook about 30 seconds. Add the cauliflower, and stir, still over high heat, for another minute. Cut up the tomatoes, and add them to the pan along with their juice, 1/4 cup water and a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper. Cover, and turn the heat to medium-low.
  • Cook 10 minutes, stirring once or twice. Add the chicken, stir, cover the pan again and cook 6 to 8 minutes longer, or until the chicken is cooked through. (If the sauce appears to be drying up at any time, add a little more water.) Stir in the lemon juice, taste and adjust seasoning. Garnish if you like, and serve.

This was a great recipe! The chicken was tender and juicy, and the cauliflower had a nice bite to it. The curry sauce was flavorful and creamy. I would definitely make this again.

The recipe was easy to follow, but the end result was just okay. The chicken was a bit dry and the cauliflower was mushy. The curry sauce was flavorful, but it didn't really come together as a cohesive dish.

I found this recipe to be too spicy for my taste. The curry sauce was overpowering and the chicken was a bit tough. I think it would be better with less curry powder and a milder chili pepper.

This dish was a bit of a disappointment. The curry sauce was bland and lacked flavor. The chicken was also dry and overcooked. The cauliflower was the only saving grace, as it had a nice roasted flavor. Overall, I would not recommend this recipe.
