Cauliflower Curry

I made the most fantastical thing Fridayish night! I bought some cauliflower and just knew I had to do something with it.  So I got home and poked around at cauliflower and curry recipes and decided that heck… I can’t screw this up.  So off to the kitchen I went.  All that I had planned for was just putting cauliflower in curry sauce.

Almost 1 head of cauliflower

1 can tomato sauce

1 can diced tomatos

Almost a whole package of curry chunk things

Half a can of coconut milk

Some parsley

Some cilantro


So lookig in my cupboard, I figured I could dump the sauce and diced tomatoes together with the curry stuff.  I figured that would be nummier than just melting the curry in water.  Then I found coconut milk and looked at the lable and saw it mention curry and I was like “A’ight! gambling time!”

Awhile later I had this delicious lovely fantastic brew of perfect tasting curry.  I mean wow.  But then I realized that my half can of coconut milk wasn’t quite half a can, so I dumped in a tad bit more to even things out.  Sadly, this completely changed the taste of my curry.  It was way too creamy… or something.  So I added MORE CURRY and then it was too salty and bleh.  Added more water, sacrificing my nice thick blend and… ehh.

So I went to add a bit of parsley and cilantro.  Unfortunately I added 3 to 4 times more of each than I wanted… but after stirring and tasting it was like O.O  it was very strange.  So I cooked it a bit longer and decided it was ready for serving (after doing up some rice of course).

By the time it cooled enoug to eat, it just had this amazing flavor.  It was very… interesting.  And the cauliflower was at this not-quite-musy-cooked stage and just had its own amazing totally off the wall flavor.

The next two days of leftovers was heavenly.  The flavor just got better and better.  Funny enough though, it didn’t really taste a whole lot like curry.

So I’m looking forward to this again.  I hope to be able to repeat my blunder.  If not, I’ll have a regular tasting curry that will be delicious too!
