This was a total hit in our house, with adults and small kids alike. We left on the chilli but fired some onion at the same time as the ginger. Also added in a tin of chickpeas and baby leaf spinach towards the end. Absolutely delicious!

This looks like it will never cook with no water, but just be patient and it does, I gave it about 20min and it was lovely!

Delicious! Great combination with the tandoori chicken. I was surprised by the delicious and mouth watering sent. Added this one to my favourites.
I took a little more time than the 15min for cooking and also added a little water after a few minutes.

Not sure you can call this super healthy with six tablespoons of oil! However I used one tblsp as currently on weight watchers. I only had half a cauli so also added 200g of new potatoes in their skins. To help cook I added about 200ml of warm water and put the lid on to steam the veg. I added chopped coriander at the end and served with the lamb and spinach curry - also from BBC Good food.
