Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Put the rice in a sauté pan with the turmeric, coriander, cardamom, ginger, bay leaves and chilli. Pour in 300ml water and add the bouillon and creamed coconut. Bring to the boil, cover the pan and leave to simmer for 15 mins. Add the chickpeas with their liquid (and a little more water if necessary), then cook, covered, for 10 mins more.
Meanwhile, toss the cauliflower, red pepper and onion in the oil with the cumin seeds. Spread out on a baking sheet and roast for 20 mins until the vegetables are tender and a little charred around the edges.
While the cauliflower and rice cook, make the raita by mixing together the yogurt, cucumber and chopped mint.
When the cauliflower and rice are tender (the stock should be absorbed by now), toss the two together, scatter with the mint leaves and serve with the raita on the side.
