Grainne's spiced potato and cauliflower

Grainne's spiced potato and cauliflower

We received this recipe from one of our customers and we were delighted to get it. If anyone has any favourite dishes they’d like to share please send them in. I must admit I haven’t tried it yet but it looks right up my street so have decided to tackle it this evening. I had to whip the photo from the internet but I’m guessing it looks pretty much like that. Anyway, thanks for this Grainne and away you go: ‘Here is recipe for spiced potato and cauliflower which is lovely and warming on these winter nights thanks to the fresh ginger and the addition of the green chilli. Those less fond of too much warmth can leave out the seeds of the chilli...... It's great on the side of your meat dish or just with some rice if you dont fancy some meat and it is very easy to do.’ Serves 4


  • 1 Lb Waxy potatoes
  • 1 Lb cauliflower
  • 1 white onion chopped finely
  • a thumb size piece of fresh ginger peeled
  • 1 Green chilli sliced finely with seeds if you are brave or without if you prefer
  • 4 Tbsp vegetable or Ghee if you have it
  • 1 tsp black mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1.5 tsp Turmeric Salt and pepper


Peel the potatoes and cut into large chunks about 2" square. Cover with salted water bring to the boil and boil for about 7 minutes and drain. Cut cauliflower into florets and wash. Chop ginger finely. Heat the oil, add the onion and ginger and cook until golden brown - be careful not to burn, keep on a medium heat. Add chilli and spices and cook for 2 minutes stirring. Add the potatoes and cauliflower stirring to coat well in the spices and onions. Season with salt and pepper and stir in about 4 tablespoons of water. Cover and cook gently until tender. Check and add extra water if necessary - Be careful not to overcook as you don't want mushy veggies!. Enjoy!
