Cauliflower, pumpkin and pea curry
- 3 tablespoons curry powder
- 3 cups cauliflower florets (1 large head)
- 2 brushed potatoes, scrubbed and chopped
- 2 cups chopped pumpkin
- 1 and a half cups frozen peas
- 1 onion, sliced finely
- 1 tbsp extra virgin-olive oil
- 3 tbsp butter
- half a cup European-style yoghurt
Preheat oven to 180C. Drizzle pumpkin with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt. Roast in oven until golden brown and tender, about 15-20 minutes.
In the meantime, using 2 medium saucepans, boil the cauliflower and potato in salted water until tender. Just before you drain either one, toss peas in. Drain all vegetables and set aside.
In a large saucepan, saute onion in the 3 tbsp butter. Add curry powder, then the cooked vegetables, stir through gently so as not to squash the pumpkin. Serve immediately topped with yogurt over rice or with store-bought warm Naan bread.
- I love my rice cooker; its so simple and fast. Set it before you start this recipe and it will keep your rice warm until you are ready.
- If serving this dish to small children, you could make it milder by using 2 tbsp of curry powder.
