A creamy, soothing curry made with cauliflower, onions and tomatoes in a mildly-flavoured white base. Onion, ginger and chillies together give the curry a very pleasant flavour without any overpowering spices. It is interesting to note that the ‘creamy’ consistency is brought about using a combination of cornflour and milk, and without typically rich ingredients like butter or cream; this makes the Creamy Cauliflower relatively easier to digest too.
