  2. Heat the ghee in the Le Creuset Cast Iron 24cm Pumpkin Casserole over a low heat. Add the mustard seeds, cardamom, cinnamon, chilli and curry leaves and roast for 1-2 minutes until fragrant, stirring regularly. Add curry paste and turmeric and continue cooking for 1 minute. Add the roasted cauliflower florets, cherry tomatoes and mix with the spice mixture. Add the coconut milk and lemon juice as well as the zest of the lemon zest and mix everything together. Bring to a boil, season and simmer for 2 minutes
  3. Garnish with coriander and coconut chips and serve with steamed rice and/or pappadum


The cauliflower curry goes well with any firm, white fish (approx. +-600 g for 8 people). Divide the fish fillets, place in the curry and cover with sauce. Cover with the lid and simmer for 3-4 minutes until the fish is translucent
