  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion, garlic, and cumin seeds. Cook and stir until the onion has turned golden brown; about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in the diced tomato, cayenne pepper, salt, turmeric, and coriander. Continue cooking 2 more minutes, then stir in the cauliflower, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook until the cauliflower is tender, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the kidney beans; cook and stir until heated through. Sprinkle with garam masala to serve.

This dish is great! I've made several variations but my low carb favorite is to leave the cauliflower in chunks and replace the kidney beans with chopped celery hearts - adding them with the tomato! Sometimes I need to add a splash of water or wine vinegar to make sure the cauliflower steams properly. I also increased the spices a bit to make it even more flavorful!

Not what I expected. Followed the recipe, but was a little to dry. Maybe next time try some coconut milk like others.

I give this four stars because the flavor was right-on, but can't give a full five stars because the texture was not very curry-ish. It needed more sauce, so I added a little bit of my own home-made curry sauce to it (potatoes, garam masala, ghee, chickpea powder, etc) and it was wonderful. I also added more cumin than suggested. Mmm.

Did not have kidney beans or tumeric on hand and added 1/3 of the veggie oil, but the recipe was very enjoyable without these ingredients. A nice fresh flavor where the cauliflower can shine through. Would definitely make again. Nice and healthy.

Garbanzo beans fit this meal better than kidney beans.

My husband loved it.. although he said it would be better with ground beef but he thinks everything is better with meat. I didn't like it at all but I am not a curry lover like my husband.

This was a delicious way to eat cauliflower. We did not grate the cauliflower, we used the florets and we did not add the beans. Would probably used another tomato for color the next time. Also halved the cayenne pepper. It was still spicy! And the garam masala was purchased from a specialty store. Don't leave it out. All in all, we would make this again the next time we plan an Indian dinner. Thanks for a great recipe.

I was looking for an Indian side dish that was veggie based and low in calories to round out my main dishes. I made this recipe with the following changes: used a 19oz can of chickpeas instead of kidney beans; rather than cumin and coriander seeds, I used the same amount ground. This recipe has a nice flavour, but needed some extra liquid to cook properly. I just added water as I saw fit. White wine might also have been nice. My partner and I have been enjoying leftovers for the past few days - this dish is a nice side even if your main meal is not Indian. It is AMAZING with a good dab of plain yogurt and sprinkled with geram masala, as other reviewers have suggested.
