Spiced Cauliflower with Broad Beans

This vegetable braise from India gets its golden hue from the spice turmeric. The aromatic spice mixture transforms cauliflower and broad beans into a great side dish to go with chicken or dal.

Directions

Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Cook broad beans in boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Peel off the skin.
  2. Heat oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan over medium-high heat. Add cumin seeds and cook, stirring, until they sizzle, 10 to 20 seconds. Add onions, jalapeños, garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring often, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add coriander, ground cumin and turmeric. Stir 10 to 20 seconds. Add water and cauliflower. Stir to coat well. Cover and cook until the cauliflower is almost tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Stir in tomato and broad beans. Cover and cook until cauliflower is tender and beans are heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with coriander and serve with lime wedges.

tip

Jalapeño is a medium-hot chilli. Substitute 1–2 long red chillies if you are unable to find it.
