My mother used to cook chicken only on Sundays. Why? I really don’t know. We did not eat often chicken, even though we had chickens and plenty of range free eggs.

Curry Mustard Cauliflower

Curry Mustard Cauliflower

I got this Curry Cauliflower recipe out of a cookbook from Ottolenghi named simpel. Made a few modifications and loved it. I am sure I will try a few other ones from his cookbook. 

 

Ingredients
  • 1 large cauliflower
  • 2½ tbsp butter
  • 1 sm onion
  • 1½ tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp curry
  • 1 tsp mustard Dijon
  • 2 green chili peppers (remove the seeds)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • parsley

 
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Since I don’t have a steamer I improvised. Next time I am just going to boil the cauliflower, imo it doesn’t make a lot of difference. in this case I steamed the cauliflower for about 10 min.
  2. Add butter to the skillet on medium high heat. Caramelize the onion in a bout 8 min. Add cumin, curry, mustard, and the chili peppers. 
  3. Add 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese and ½ tsp salt and the heavy cream.
  4. Put the cauliflower in a baking dish. Pour the onion cheese mixture over the cauliflower. Add the remaining cheddar cheese in a bowl and add the breadcrumbs and chopped parsley. Sprinkle over the cauliflower. Wipe the sides down. Bake for 8 min till the sauce is bubbly. Put the oven on broil, broil for 4 min, the top should be slightly brown.
