Cauliflower Mash with an Indian twist

This could be used in a variety of ways, as a substitute for mash potato or simply as a side dish for a curry, as a substitute for dal – delicious however you eat it.

You will need:

One cauliflower

One onion- diced

Two spring onion tips or chives

One teaspoon of turmeric

One teaspoon of dried ginger or fresh ginger

One teaspoon of garam masala

Two cloves of garlic – crushed

1/2 teaspoon of fresh chilli

Firstly, take your cauliflower and remove as much stalk as you can – keeping it whole. Steam until soft.

In another pan gently fry the onions with some olive oil. Fry until soft and translucent, then add the garlic, ginger and chili and cook for a further few minutes. Now add the turmeric and garam masala and cook for a few minutes.

Meanwhile, take the cooked cauliflower and add to a blender and pulse for a few minutes. Now add the onion and spice mix and pulse until smooth but not too mush as to make it too soft, it needs to hold its shape.

Now dish up and add some spring onions to the top and serve!

We had it with Indian sausages cooked with turmeric, onions, peppers and ginger served with spinach and broccoli.
