  • Cut the cauliflower into medium florets.
  • Heat the oil in a deep frying pan over a medium-high heat and carefully fry the cumin seeds and curry leaves.
  • As soon as the spices start to pop, add the onion, garlic and ginger and stir-fry briefly. Add the cauliflower and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, until lightly browned in places.
  • Add the tomato or tomato puree, a splash of water, the lentils and the chill, if using. Cover, turn the heat to low and cook gently for about 5 minutes or until the cauliflower is just tender.
  • Stir in 2 tablespoons coconut cream, stir and cook for a few minutes.
  • Scatter with a handful of chopped fresh coriander leaves and serve with warm naan bread and lime pickle, if you like.
