Ingredients and method

3 large or 6 small potatoes peeled and cut

1/2 large or 1 small cauliflower

1 cup fresh coriander (cilantro) roughly chopped

1 large onion finely chopped

1 14oz can tomatoes

1/2" fresh ginger peeled and cut or 1 teaspoon

2 cloves fresh crushed garlic

1 tsp tumeric

1 tsp cumin

1 teaspoon corriander seeds

2 tsps garam masala

1 fresh green chili chopped and de-seeded (optional)

Method

Brown seeds and other spices except garam masala in shortening, add onions and cook until soft. Add can of tomatoes and a little water.

Add potatoes and cauliflower and coat with the sauce.

Add garam masala and cilantro and chili - stir

Allow mixture to boil and stir, simmer for 30-45 minutes on a low heat covered, stir from time to time to ensure mixture does not stick to bottom.

I find this dish is even more flavourful if I make it in advance and allow to sit in the pan for a few hours and finalize cooking when ready to serve.

Cooking and prep time approx 1 hour.

      coriander seeds - thaks for catching my error. It is an Indian dish there are variations depending on which region of India, this one is from southern India.

      It is yummy and the flavours get better the longer it is left.

      Are you using cardamom seeds or coriander seeds? Is this an Indonesian dish?
