  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the sauce:

  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp ground cumin or 1/4 tsp cumin seeds
  • ½ tsp garam masala
  • ¼ tsp cayenne or Indian red chili powder
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • ½ hot green chili finely chopped, such as serrano, Thai or use mild chilies for less heat
  • ¾ -1 cup (40 g) thinly sliced onion
  • 2 Medium tomatoes pureed
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp dried fenugreek leaves , optional
  • Lime juice and cilantro for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 400℉ (205 c)
  • In a bowl, add cauliflower and potato and sprinkle in the oil, toss well to coat. Drizzle in some lime juice and mix well
  • Add in all of the spices and salt in a small bowl, mix really well and sprinkle over the cauliflower and potato mixture. Add the ginger and garlic.Toss well to coat.
  • Transfer the cauliflower and potato mixture to a parchment lined baking dish, spread evenly to ensure even cooking.
  • Bake at 400℉ for 25-35 mins or until cooked through, checking large pieces of potato for doneness. See notes for alternate cooking methods
  • To make the sauce: heat a large skillet over medium heat, add oil and when the oil is somewhat hot, add in the coriander, cumin, garam masala and cayenne and mix well. Let the spices get really fragrant and then add in ginger and garlic.
  • Cook for a few seconds and then add in chili and onion, cook until the onion is golden.
  • Add in pureed tomato and salt and mix well.
  • Bring mixture to a boil and cook for another minute to thicken the sauce and roast the pureed tomato. Add in the baked potato cauliflower mixture into the sauce and mix well. Add in fenugreek leaves and toss well to coat with the sauce.
  • If the sauce is too thick , add in a few Tbsp of water then mix well and cover. Cook for 2-3 minutes and switch off heat.
  • Let sit covered for a few minutes in order for the flavors to meld together. Taste and adjust salt and flavor.
  • Garnish with cilantro and lime juice before serving.Store refrigerated for upto 3 days


Cook veggies instead of baking, you can parboil the potatoes and cauliflower or pan fry them in little oil (I prefer tomcats iron for this, pan fry and cover for 5-6 mins ) till they are cooked. This also helps in retaining the shape and texture. Then add to the sauce 

  • cauliflower can overcook easily when cooking directly in a skillet. Baking helps prevent this which is how we prepare the veg in this recipe.
  • You can double up the sauce for saucier and add some cashew cream in the end for creamier if you wish.
