Method

15 - 20 mins
 

Blitz all the main ingredients together, without the cauliflower, in a food processor to make spiced oil.


Prepare the coconut coriander relish by combining all the ingredients.


Place the cauliflower steaks onto a baking paper-lined baking tray, taking care to keep them together.

Brush generously with the spiced oil and roast in the oven at 200°C for 15–20 mins.

You may need to turn the “steak” over to give it colour on the other side too.

To serve, spread some tamarind raita* on a warmed serving platter and lay the steaks onto it.

Spread big dollops of the coconut coriander relish over the cauliflower.

To make the tamarind raita toast ½ a teaspoon of cumin seeds and ½ a teaspoon of mustard seeds in a pan in 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil or ghee.

Add 2 pinches of asafoetida (optional).

Stir together 3 tablespoons of tamarind sauce or tamarind chutney, 3 tablespoons of palm sugar, 2 tablespoons of finely diced red onion, 2 tablespoons of chopped coriander, 1 teaspoon of chilli powder, 1 teaspoon of ground cumin and the toasted seeds into 1 cup of full-cream yoghurt.
