This is one of my favorite go-to meals since it's so easy to prepare all in one pot and is very flavorful. It can be eaten alone as a stew, over cooked brown rice, or spooned into steamed corn tortillas with cooked brown rice.Print

How to cut a cauliflower
(1) Turn the cauliflower upside down. (2) Remove the thick outer leaves (the leaves are also edible, but are most often discarded). (3) Cut down along the thick inner core until all the florets are free. (4) Now you are left with just the core, separated perfectly from the florets, and no waste. Cut florets smaller from here.
What is curry powder?
Curry powder is a mixture of spices that usually includes turmeric (gives the yellow color), coriander, cumin, fenugreek, and red pepper. Depending on the curry powder recipe, additional ingredients may be included, such as ginger, garlic, asafoetida, fennel seed, caraway, cinnamon, clove, mustard seed, cardamom, nutmeg, and black pepper. Some cooks create different curry mixtures for different recipes, with some mild in flavor and others quite hot and spicy; those sold in grocery stores are typically on the milder side. In Eastern Indian cultures, curry recipes are often passed down from generation to generation.
