Vegan Cauliflower Pea Curry – 1 Pot Gobi Matar masala. This cauliflower peas curry gets baked in the oven. Creamy roasted flavors without standing around roasting the sauce. Vegan Glutenfree Nutfree Soyfree Recipe. Add some cooked chickpeas to make a meal. Jump to Recipe
I like hands-off meals at times and this baked Cauliflower Curry is just that Once you have the sauce blended, mix it with veggies and put it to bake and forget it. The sauce bakes to a nice roasted creamyness and is great with a variety of veggies and beans.
Cauliflower is baked for a few mins with cumin seeds and garlic. You want to bake just enough time to cook the garlic to golden. Baking too long will burn the garlic. This time will also roast the cumin seeds taking away the raw flavor. The sauce is then blended with all the ingredients in a blender. Add to the baking dish, add peas or chickpeas and bake until the veggies are cooked to preference. Garnish and serve with flatbread or grains. Easy, Quick and Delicious!
