Cauliflower Chicken Curry

I love a good curry and this was so flavorful and delicious! This would be delicious served over rice or cauliflower rice but I just served it with some regular naan flatbread for my family and some Fat Head Flatbread for myself!

  • 1/2 head of cauliflower (250g), cut into bit sized florets

  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1/2 (40g) small yellow onion, minced

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 inch piece of ginger root, grated

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bit sized pieces

  • 3/4 tbsp garam masala

  • 1 tsp yellow curry

  • 1/4 tsp turmeric

  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper .

  • 4 tbsp tomato paste

  • 1 can (13.5oz) full fat coconut milk

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

  • water to thin sauce if needed

  • optional: rice, cauliflower rice, naan, chopped basil for serving


Preheat broiler on your oven. Toss cauliflower florets in 1/2 tbsp olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Lay in a single layer on a baking sheet and broil in the oven for 3 minutes, flip over and broil for an additional 2 minutes, just until the edges start to get crispy. Set aside.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Add the minced onion and saute for 3 minutes, add the minced garlic and grated ginger and saute for 30 seconds.

Add the chicken and saute for 8 minutes, stirring to make sure it gets evenly browned. Add 3/4 tbsp garam masala, 1 tsp curry, 1/4 tsp turmeric and 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper and stir well to evenly coat the chicken.

Add 4 tbsp tomato paste and 1 can of coconut milk. Stir to fully incorporate the sauce and add your salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer and simmer uncovered for 5-7 minutes. Add your cauliflower and stir to evenly coat with sauce. If your sauce is too thick, add a little water at this time to thin it out. Simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes and serve!

Serve on top of rice or cauliflower rice and sprinkle with chopped basil if you want.
