The Curry House Cookbook

vegetable curry
recipe version 1.2
version 2.0 is now available
see The Curry House Cookery Book


My recipe uses cauliflower but you can use any vegetable or mixture of vegetables you like. The recipe uses the portion of Basic Curry Sauce that you would have left over if you were making one of the Main Dishes. Handy eh?


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cauliflower - washed, cut into small florets and dried on kitchen paper
  • half teaspoon good chilli powder
  • half teaspoon turmeric
  • half teaspoon ground coriander seed
  • half teaspoon ground cumin seed
  • third to half a batch of Basic Curry Sauce according to what you've got left over and how "saucy" you want the vegetable curry
  • salt to taste
  1. heat the oil in a large pan over a moderate heat
  2. Put the cauliflower florets in the pan and stir fry until the cauliflower gets little brown patches
  3. Sprinkle the chilli powder, turmeric, coriander and cumin over the cauliflower and stir fry for a minute to mix in and warm the spices.
  4. Add the Basic Curry Sauce and salt and simmer on a low heat until the cauliflower is just cooked
