    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!  -  05 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  05 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  17 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
