Vegan Jalfrezi


I am bored of this seasons cauliflower! So when this weeks veg box arrived with yet another cauliflower, I wanted to throw it away. But then I had a variety of veg in the house but in tiny portions. I decided to put all of them together along with the cauliflower and make something that turned out to be very similar to a jalfrezi.


1 cauliflower head, cut into small florets

1 potatoes, cut into slices

1 bell pepper, cut into chunks

1 large onion, cut into chunks

1 tinned sweetcorn

1 tinned passatta or chopped tomatoes

2 carrots, cut into half then sliced

2 tbsp oil

2 tsp turmeric

3 tsp chilli powder

3 tsp garam masala powder

1 tsp cumin seeds

2 tsp ginger garlic paste

Salt & sugar to taste

Coriander to garnish


Heat oil in a hot wok. Temper the cumin seeds for a minute until they turn brown. Now add the cauliflower, potatoes and the carrots. Mix in the dry spices. Cover the wok and cook the vegetables on low heat for 10 mins. Now add the onion, sweetcorn and the ginger garlic paste. Cook it for 2 mins (add a splash of water if necessary). Now add the tomatoes, a dash of water along with the salt. Cover and cook until all the vegetables are nearly cooked.

Now add the bell peppers and sugar. Cook for further 5 mins without the lid. Garnish with chopped coriander. Serve hot with rice or naan bread.
