Cauliflower, Potato, and Pea Curry

  • Active Time 15m
  • Total Time 30m

Serves 4

Our version of this curry, a favorite combination of vegetables in India, unites cumin, coriander, turmeric and red-pepper flakes. Fresh cilantro provides an herbal note. Serve the curry as a generous side dish or with rice for a meatless main dish.
WINE RECOMMENDATION
Go for your favorite full-bodied, full-flavored white wine. A California chardonnay, for example, won't be wiped out by the curry's earthy and hot spices.

ingredients

  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
  • 1 medium head cauliflower (about 1 pound), cut into large florets (about 4 cups)
  • 1 1/2 pounds boiling potatoes (about 4), peeled, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup canned crushed tomatoes in thick puree
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup frounceen petite peas

directions

In a large deep frying pan, heat the oil over moderate heat. Add the coriander, cumin, turmeric and red-pepper flakes and stir. Add the cauliflower and potatoes and cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables start to soften, about 5 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, 1/4 cup of the cilantro, the water and the salt. Bring to a simmer, reduce the heat to low, and cook, covered, until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in the peas and the remaining 1/4 cup cilantro and cook, covered, until the peas are tender, about 2 minutes longer.

Variation

If you like, you can add three tablespoons dried unsweetened coconut to the curry. Put it in at the same time as the peas.
