1 Finely grate the fresh coconut. If you are using desiccated coconut, soak it in 60ml boiling water for 30 minutes (most of the water will be absorbed).
2 Cut the cauliflower into delicate florets no thicker than 2,5cm. Cut the carrots into 5cm lengths, then quarter the thick pieces lengthways and halve the thinner pointed ends.
3 Coarsely chop the pepper and transfer to a food processor. Add the garlic, lime juice, sugar, chilli and salt to taste. Blend until smooth.
4 Steam or boil the cauliflower and carrots until just tender. Drain and transfer to a serving bowl.
5 Pour the dressing over the vegetables while they?re still warm. Toss to mix. Add the coconut and toss again.
