Ingredients

Serve with naan or pita bread, or rice.

Instructions

Heat oil in a large heavy bottom pot or Dutch oven over medium high heat. ( see notes for Instant Pot)

Add shallot, ginger and garlic, and reduce heat to medium to prevent burning, stirring frequently about 3 minutes until fragrant and golden. Add spices, seeds and salt and lightly toast, while stirring 1-2 minutes, which will enhance their flavor.

Add diced tomato, cook 2 more minutes, then add the coconut milk and stir to incorporate, bringing to a simmer. Add cauliflower and red bell pepper, give a stir, cover and let simmer 10-12 minutes on medium low heat. Check the cauliflower – it should be just tender, and continue cooking uncovered until desired tenderness (the smaller you cut the pieces the faster this will cook).  Taste, add a squeeze of lemon juice. Add more salt if necessary.

Serve in bowls over rice or with naan or pita bread. Garnish with cilantro.

Notes

If cooking in an Instant Pot, set to “sauté”  function and sauté shallot, ginger and garlic in oil for 3 minutes or until fragrant. Add spices, seeds and salt and cook 1 minute. Add remaining ingredients, stir and set instant pot to pressure cook on high for 5 minutes. Manually release. It will thicken as it cools. adjust salt and add a squeeze of lemon.
