This is like my dream recipe. So many foods I obsessively love, all in one dish. I believe I have previously discussed my passion for cauliflower, and my other passion for chickpeas, and my more recent passion for ghee, and perhaps even my passion for curry. It's all here, it's simple and quick, it's hearty and filling, and believe it or not, it's actually pretty healthy.
I also makes the whole house smell heavenly. If your idea of heaven is curry, which it should be. Recipe after the jump:
CURRIED CAULIFLOWER WITH CHICKPEAS AND TOMATO
Adapted from a recipe by Tyler Florence, via Serious Eats
2 tbsp ghee
1 onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons curry powder

1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
3 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 head cauliflower, stem removed and chopped into florets
1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons tomato paste
Fresh cilantro, chopped
Melt the ghee in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the onion, curry powder, coriander, cumin, and ginger. Cook until onion is softened.
Add the tomatoes; cook for 6 minutes more.
