    Really tasty recipe. Loved it and so easy to do.

  • Gina

    Delicious! For those watching their calorie intake, use low fat coconut milk. I also cut the peanut butter down to 30g for 2 portions. Used coriander seeds & cumin seeds rather than ground because they were in my store cupboard. Easy to make, my husband loved it, will definitely do again.

  • Kirsty

    Not sure at all - weird combination of total sweetness with coconut and peanut butter and then cauliflower - doesn't work for me

  • Loubydoo

    Easy to make, lots of wholesome ingredients. I switched to 1/2 fat coconut milk, coconut oil and used peanut butter which was 100% peanuts so I didn't find this sweet in the slightest but others may experience this using different brands. Plenty of lime juice adds zing and almonds for crunch, didn't bother with the rice.

    Loved this. Easy to make and tasty. Will try with lower fat coconut milk next time. Great combination of flavours.

  • Katie G

    Yum! Even tasted good cold for lunch the next day.

  • Alison

    Family favourite. Added chicken instead of cauliflower, and use the cauliflower to make ‘cauliflower rice’. Delicious

  • Becca

    Would normally struggle to get chickpeas in to the children but even they liked this one. * used 1 tin of chickpeas instead of 2. Could substitute all of the herbs/spices with a curry paste if you wanted to make it even quicker

  • Cheryl

    Lovely dish and very filling but in no way does it take the time stated. Over an hour later and it was on the table!!!

  • Lisa

    A really nice curry with lots of great flavours, this will definitely become a family favourite.

  • Mel

    Loved this! Apart from adding an extra garlic clove and a second red chilli, wouldn’t change a thing. Really delicious. My husband said he doesn’t normally like cauliflower but he loves this! Will definitely make this again ;)
