Ingredients

  • 450 g Halloumi cubed
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion sliced
  • 2 Garlic Cloves chopped
  • 3 cm Fresh Ginger peeled and chopped finely
  • 2 Cloves
  • 1 Cardomom pod
  • 2 tsp Ground Coriander
  • 2 tsp Turmeric
  • ½ tsp Chilli Powder optional
  • 2 tsp Garam Masala
  • 2 tsp Medium Curry Powder
  • 1 Small Cauliflower broken into florets
  • 300 ml Passata
  • 2 tbsp Tomato Puree
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 200 ml Natural Yogurt
  • 2 tbsp Mango Chutney
  • 1 tbsp Coriander chopped

Instructions

  • In a large shallow casserole or frying pan, fry the halloumi until golden. Spoon onto a plate and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in the same pan and gently fry the onions, garlic and ginger until soft.
  • Add the spices and fry for a minute or two.
  • Place the cauliflower florets in the pan and fry for 5 minutes.
  • Add the passata, tomato puree and sugar and give it a stir. Simmer until the cauliflower is cooked (this usually takes about 10 minutes but you can test if its ready with a sharp knife).
  • Stir in the yogurt and mango chutney, before adding the halloumi back into the pan to warm through. Scatter over fresh coriander before serving.

Notes

Variations: 
  • Substitute the cauliflower for sweet potato cubes or butternut squash.
  • Add a handful of baby spinach at the end of cooking. It will wilt in the residual heat of the dish.
  • If you're catering for fussy vegetable phobic kids, you can't go wrong with a handful of frozen peas and green beans.
 
Storage: The curry can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days or frozen for use at a later date.
