  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper powder
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt or as per taste
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk


  • Heat oil in a nonstick pan and add cauliflower florets. Saute until soft and light brown.
  • In the meanwhile, in a food processor combine onion, baby kale and coconut flakes and grind as smooth as possible.
  • Now, add the kale paste to the roasted cauliflower and gently mix.
  • Now add turmeric, mustard powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, ginger powder, cardamom powder, cinnamon powder and dried fenugreek.
  • Saute well making sure that cauliflower does not get mashed.
  • Add water and cook for one minute.
  • Now add cayenne pepper, sugar, salt and lemon juice.
  • Mix gently and cook again for 30 seconds.
  • Lastly, add coconut milk and cook covered for 10 minutes in a low flame.

While grinding kale if you feel the paste isn’t very smooth add few drops of water and then grind. The curry will come out well if the paste is nice and smooth.
