Curry Roasted Cauliflower

I've been enjoying this recipe for Curry Roasted Cauliflower. One head of cauliflower makes a big batch which I keep in a big plastic container in my fridge. Then while I'm cooking dinner, I throw some of them into the oven to cook for my side dish. It comes out fairly spicy. I'm not sure which ingredient(s) cause the heat...garam masala or mustard seeds? I've never cooked with either of those before. Very tasty.

Curry Roasted Cauliflower

1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon garam masala (or curry powder)
1 tablespoon black or yellow mustard seeds

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Mix the dry seasonings together. (salt, pepper, garam masala and mustard seeds).
  3. Mix the dry seasoning mix with the olive oil
  4. Coat Cauliflower with mix.
  5. Spread seasoned cauliflower evenly in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet or in a large roasting pan. Try not to crowd the cauliflower; otherwise, it will steam and you won't get the delicious caramelized bits.
  6. Roast for 20-25 minutes, shaking the pan and stirring the cauliflower midway through roasting.
  7. Transfer to a serving dish and taste for seasoning, you may need another sprinkle of salt and a grinding of fresh pepper

Those pictures are great and the cauliflower sounds divine. YUM!

Thanks. The cauliflower is indeed pretty tasty (spicy though...)

I made a VERY similar recipe off of epicurious a couple of weeks ago: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/230653

It was excellent - I'll definitely give yours a try as well as I loooove cauliflower and all things curry.

Oh yeah...very similar. Is now cauliflower season?

Perfect. I have a half a head of cauliflower in my fridge right now and I was wondering what I would do with it.

half a head is pretty perfect. I had tons of cauliflower from a full head.

Wow, must make this! I'm adding it to my bookmarks of recipes.

Yay. Let me know what you think of it if you make it.

Ah, yum, and such beautiful colors! Did you get a new camera? I made a similar dish last Friday. It was the mustard that made mine hot; there was no garam masala. I've been updating my 50 list. I usually go for broccoli at the farmers' market, but this last time, I wanted cauliflower. Now, I want cauliflower all the time!

alas no...it's still my same camera (that I still love)
Geez. You're going to get your 50 recipes by next week!

I haven't had cauliflower in ages

In fact, the last time I had it was at an Indian restaurant. Or the Krishna temple buffet. One of those two. It were nummy.

So does garam masala taste the same as curry powder?

Re: I haven't had cauliflower in ages

I'm embarrassed to admit it but I don't know the difference between garam masala and curry powder. I haven't really cooked with curry powder before. I'm guessing garam masala is spicier though.

I LOVE cauliflower...and curry. THIS is a keeper! Thanks!!

Cool. I want to hear back from you if you try it out.

Simple, but I wouldn't have thought of it, and it looks fantastic. Thank you!

It's inspired me to go a step further and make a chick pea, cauliflower and couscous curry for dinner tomorrow night, actually. :)

I hadn't thought of it either...just luckily saw someone else's post. Please do post how you go about making your dish. That sounds pretty tasty and I know very little about making curry.

Cool. I'll want to hear back if you make it :)

That looks good! And we just happen to have a 1 head cauliflower lying in the fridge not knowing what's gonna hit it very soon...
Thanks for the recipe and I dig the photos.

Thank you! Least I could do for a master baker like yourself.

I just tried this recipe (I changed it a bit cause I didn't have any garam masala at home; I went with a thai curry and some honey) and it tasted great! Thanks for sharing!

ooh. Honey sounds like it would be a good addition. Thanks for the idea!

I like making this and was looking for another recipe when this came up on Google. Small world! :P

Very cool! I didn't know you were still on LJ. How have you been?
