  • 2 tbsp toasted flaked almonds (optional)
  • large handful of roughly chopped fresh coriander
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

Method

  1. Heat a large, deep non-stick frying pan, wok or shallow saucepan over a low heat. Add the oil, stir in the onion and fry over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened and starting to turn golden.

  2. Stir the chilli, garlic and ginger into the onion mixture and fry for 2 minutes. Raise the heat a little, add the potatoes and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, until the outsides are just softening. Stir in the curry paste, cook for 1 minute, then toss in the cauliflower and stirfry for a further 1 minute to coat.

  3. Pour the coconut milk into the pan and stir thoroughly. Add some salt, raise the heat and bring to the boil, stirring frequently, then half cover the pan and reduce to a slow simmer. Cook the curry for 20-25 minutes, stirring often, until the sauce has thickened slightly and the vegetables are tender.

  4. Half bury the eggs yolk-sides up in the sauce, then cover and continue to simmer gently for a further 1-2 minutes to heat through. Serve with a scattering of toasted almonds, if liked, and coriander.

Lovely dish but definitely not enough to feed my family (2 adults, 2 kids). Will double the portions next time....

Great as more of a side dish than a main to accompany a good hot curry!

YUM! I used cumin, turmeric and curry powders instead of a curry paste and it was delicious. My housemate said it "looked like a real curry"! It really does taste like it could have been ordered in. I'll definitely be cooking it again and sharing the recipe with friends and family.

Love this recipe, will be making again! I used madras paste as that is what I had, also used more coconut milk and some ground almonds for more/thicker sauce. Added a dash of all spice, cumin and chilli powder as no real chillies. Also pre-cooked the spuds as I was short on time. Great recipe, try it!

I can't count how many times I've made this dish (in fact, each time we have a cauliflower in a veggie box). It's simply delicious and definitely our favourite veggie curry. Served it once to guests too, and everyone liked it. I skip the egg part (or make it a half), though, as the hubby is not so much into eggs. I guess I can safely say that this made me enjoy cooking and eating cauliflower again

Pleasantly surprised! Cauliflower is definitely not my favourite but this was quite nice. It didn't smell particularly appetising but the taste was good. I agree with previous comments that the eggs are pretty important though.

We wanted to have some leftovers for lunch the next day so I doubled the quantities for most ingredients. Used a mix of light coconut milk and normal then added some stock which we had in the fridge for more sauce. Turned out great! Will become a regular for us. Thanks for a great recipe!

This must be dependent on what curry paste you use. I used a Patak's Mild as it was to feed our toddler as well as us. Really disappointing after having read such rave reviews. Would give it 3 stars if the website didn't have a glitch at the moment and would let me do it. I've made much tastier curries by just chucking ingredients together making it up as I go along. Alright, but wouldn't bother making again.

P.S. Don't leave out the eggs, they make the dish!
