Natalie - Sept. 27, 2022, 6:31 p.m.

I'm a college student in a dorm, so I just used both frozen cauliflower and frozen spinach and it turned out amazing. Super easy to make and only used one pot so it was nice to have hardly any dishes to do. I make your recipes all the time because they are super simple and delicious. Definitely going to be making this again!

PUL Team - Sept. 28, 2022, 8:28 p.m.

So thrilled it's being enjoyed, Natalie, it means so much! Wishing you all the best with your studies 😃


Carol Beharie Ware - Sept. 24, 2022, 6:29 a.m.

Enjoyed your cauliflower lentil curry dish.


Nancy - Sept. 19, 2022, 8:32 p.m.

A gorgeous recipe, so easy but delicious.


Lauren - Sept. 18, 2022, 11:52 p.m.

I’ve made many of your recipes and have enjoyed them all. I’m plant based but my husband is not and my two kids are on the pickier side. This meal was enjoyed by all, which is tough to do! I’ll definitely make again!!

PUL Team - Sept. 19, 2022, 6:23 p.m.

Such a lovely compliment, Lauren, it means so much!


Heather - Aug. 30, 2022, 12:58 a.m.

This curry was so delicious! I made it for my partner and I and he was amazed by this food. We are just starting to eat more vegan, and this was an awesome recipe to add. The lentils paired super well with the spices. So happy I found you guys and this recipe. <3

PUL Team - Aug. 31, 2022, 4:45 p.m.

It means so much, Heather, and wishing you both all the best on your journey with plant-foods 🌱


Lilli - Aug. 29, 2022, 1:18 p.m.

Hi Sadia,

this is my favorite curry recipe there is! I'm not a huge spinach fan, so I just left it out.
All the best from Germany,

Lilli

PUL Team - Aug. 30, 2022, 3:25 a.m.

We're so glad it's being enjoyed, Lilli! Sending lots of love to Germany 💛


Natasza - Aug. 7, 2022, 10:45 p.m.

Hello, I love your recipes ❤️ they are very well balanced both in taste and in nutritional values. I have a question for this one - is it 1 and 1/4 cup lentils weighted when they are cooked or dry? I cooked 250g lentils in an instant pot and I wasn't sure, but I didn't want to freeze them so I've ended up adding all into the curry ;)

PUL Team - Aug. 8, 2022, 4:18 p.m.

Hey Natasza, thanks for the kind words and question! Apologies for any confusion as well. The recipe calls for 1¼ cups (248 grams) of lentils that have been cooked already. Some enjoy using pre-cooked canned lentils for ease. If cooking lentils, around half a cup of dry lentils will yield 1¼ cup cooked. It's alright if there's more or less in the dish though, we can always adjust the spices to taste if needed 😊


Karen - July 27, 2022, 8:21 p.m.

Another incredible Pick Up Limes recipe. This one might just be our most favourite curry EVER.

PUL Team - July 29, 2022, 2:52 a.m.

Aw such a big compliment, Karen, thank you!


Sonja - July 25, 2022, 7:36 p.m.

Such a delicious dish! It was the first curry I cooked at home and since then it became a stable dish at home :) Even my parents who are in generell no vegans nor vegetarians really enjoy eating it.

Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe

PUL Team - July 26, 2022, 7:43 a.m.

Aw we appreciate it so much, Sonja, thank you!


Valerie - July 15, 2022, 2:40 p.m.

Hello there! My boyfriend and I are far from being vegans but we do like incorporating vegan/vegetarian meals a few times a week. This recipe is by far one of our favorites!!! Keep up the good work, it is greatly appreciated. :)

PUL Team - July 15, 2022, 3:09 p.m.

We're so happy to hear the curry is being enjoyed, Valerie!


Dana - July 11, 2022, 11:09 p.m.

Can´t wait to try home-made curry for the first time! Any practical advice on how to use the medium tomato instead of the canned diced ones? To boil it first or directly in the curry? To fry it? With pulp or without? Thanks

PUL Team - July 13, 2022, 5:40 a.m.

Hey Dana, you can dice the fresh tomato and use it in equivalent amounts of the canned variety. You'll just want to allow the tomato to simmer for longer to help it break down. If you prefer the recipe to be more speedy, then you could pre-cook the tomato so it breaks down quicker 😊


Rosemary - July 11, 2022, 8:05 p.m.

Absolutely delicious, this has become a regular meal for us. We usually roast the cauliflower during the weekend, which means the curry comes together really quickly for a weekday dinner.

PUL Team - July 13, 2022, 5:26 a.m.

A lovely idea to speed things up, Rosemary, thank you 😊


Charlie - June 28, 2022, 3:20 p.m.

So easy and delicious!


Clare - June 15, 2022, 7:15 p.m.

Love this meal. Such fantastic flavours


Megan - June 12, 2022, 5:14 a.m.

I made this tonight and it was delious!


Cathleen - May 19, 2022, 3:55 a.m.

Delicious, thank you so much for a wonderful recipe! I must confess, I was feeling lazy and contemplated skipping the roasting of the cauliflower step, but I'm so glad I didn't - it added such a wonderful depth of flavour, it was well worth the small bit of effort. This was my first time finding PUL, but I'll definitely be back to try more.

PUL Team - May 20, 2022, 1:04 a.m.

Woohoo! So happy the curry was enjoyed, Cathleen, thank you :)


Jess - May 16, 2022, 4:55 p.m.

I got brown lentils but they're not pre-cooked, I've never cooked lentils before actually, some recipes show cooking them with spices, how would you go about that for this recipe? I also have a rice cooker & instant pot, if I can use that it'll be easier

PUL Team - May 18, 2022, 3:44 a.m.

Hey Jess, we tend to cook lentils without spices and rather add them to taste in dishes while cooking. Either way works, although we'd recommend avoiding salt as adding it beforehand can cause lentils to toughen. In case it helps, we usually use around 3-4 cups of water per 1 cup of brown lentils and cook them on the stovetop for 20-25 minutes. It's generally best to follow package instructions and there are plenty of recipes online as well. We hope you enjoy the curry 😃


Lloyd M - May 16, 2022, 12:29 a.m.

This is amazing, family loved it


Manon CG - May 13, 2022, 9:33 p.m.

This recipe was absolutely delicious and comforting. The combination of spices and textures was just right. I used black lentils as they keep their shape and roasted the cauliflower leaves which added a very nice chewy texture. Thank you for your website - my go-to recipe favourite. 🌻

PUL Team - May 15, 2022, 12:31 a.m.

We're smiling from ear to ear, Manon, thank you for the glowing feedback!


Phillipa - May 7, 2022, 9:13 p.m.

Tried this tonight and absolutely loved it. Being Brits living in Germany we really miss having flavourful spice dishes out and this was very simple and quick. The oven time makes it easy to prepare everything which is a help when you have a little one at home. We always cook our rice in a rice cooker too which takes off some observation time.
Can’t wait to make this for other people the next time we have guests!

PUL Team - May 8, 2022, 7:38 p.m.

Aw we're so thrilled it was enjoyed, Phillipa, sending hugs to Germany 🤗


Sara W. - May 7, 2022, 12:51 a.m.

I've made so many PUL recipes, and they've all been truly great. That said, this one takes the cake! It's definitely the best curry I've ever made and among the best I've ever eaten! Perfect amount of seasoning, well-balanced flavor, and so satisfying.

PUL Team - May 7, 2022, 8:11 p.m.

Oh, Sara, the kind words mean so much! Thank you ☺️


Cork - May 1, 2022, 7:02 p.m.

I’m a beginner cook and this was really easy to make and so tasty!! Absolutely delicious, I loved it! ❤️

PUL Team - May 2, 2022, 3:02 a.m.

So happy to hear, Cork, and thanks for allowing PUL to be part of you cooking journey 😃


Savanah - May 1, 2022, 6:20 p.m.

This is sooo flavorful and a perfect dinner! Thank you for the recipe!


Joanna - April 30, 2022, 8:31 a.m.

I loove all your recipes, but this is just so good! 🤤
Every weekend I meal prep 3 of your recipes so that I can take them to work and I always get a lot of nice comments about my lunch.

PUL Team - April 30, 2022, 10:04 p.m.

Awe we're so thrilled the recipes are being enjoyed, Joanna, it means so much 😃


Adrian - April 29, 2022, 5:36 a.m.

Staple meal prep for me. Swap the optional cherry tomatoes for 1/4 - 1/3 cup raisins. Yes, raisins. You’re welcome.

PUL Team - April 30, 2022, 6:58 p.m.

Ooo interesting idea, Adrian, thank you 😃 We'll be sure to give it a try!


Diana Hall - April 25, 2022, 9:10 p.m.

I have loved this recipe for a few years now. How would you suggest thawing/reheating it once frozen.

PUL Team - April 26, 2022, 4:40 p.m.

Hey Diana, we enjoy thawing this one in the fridge overnight or on the counter briefly and reheating it on the stove on medium power to help evaporate any extra water. If a microwave is more accessible though that would work too 🙂


Jade - April 17, 2022, 11:39 a.m.

So delicious!! 😋


Aisha - April 10, 2022, 3:48 a.m.

This recipe has been routine in my space for at least a couple of years now. Its even become a snack food! Especially on the days that I make it. Before I put it up for the night in the fridge, a couple of tsp/tbsp when I have a little bit of lingering hungry thoughts at night--its the perfect top off. This recipe is so fulfilling. Is so satisfying. Its turned into a little bit of a kitchen sink recipe for me since I enjoy it regularly. Green beans. Fresh peas. Broccoli.This is easy to add a host of proteins to if you want. Just a great recipe. Forever enjoying it.

PUL Team - April 10, 2022, 11:43 p.m.

Thank you for the glowing review, Aisha! It means so much that the curry is being enjoyed ☺️


Diane - March 12, 2022, 5:26 p.m.

My boyfriend and I just made it tonight and we've loved every single bit of it, thanks a million for your recipes !

PUL Team - March 12, 2022, 7:46 p.m.

Beyond happy it was enjoyed, Diane, thank you for the kind words ☺️


Bree - March 10, 2022, 11:26 p.m.

Absolutely delicious!


Leo D - March 6, 2022, 8:52 p.m.

I love this recipe. Have made it many times and will continue too. Anytime I want to eat lentils, this is the recipe I use. Thank you for sharing it 😊.

PUL Team - March 7, 2022, 6:25 a.m.

Awe it means so much, Leo, thank YOU!


Joe - March 2, 2022, 9:13 p.m.

We lost our way being vegan for 5 yrs, eating the same old boring dishes!
Then, I re found your videos on YouTube, made this curry and wham!!! Absolutely delicious! Our senses are reawakened, thank you so much. Absolutely 10/10.

PUL Team - March 2, 2022, 11:35 p.m.

Oh we're so honoured to hear, Joe, thank you for the glowing review ☺️


Dee - Feb. 21, 2022, 9:25 p.m.

So good! I ended up adding extra veggies that i had in the fridge and subbing red lentils for brown to make it thicker and more like a stew. Due to a salt malfunction, i ended up having to add more milk and tomato to to cut the saltiness. But the recipe tolerated it really well and turned out delicious! Super versatile and easy to make and yummy. Thanks!

PUL Team - Feb. 22, 2022, 4:52 a.m.

So glad it was enjoyed, Dee, and thanks for sharing your experience with the curry!


Bekka - Feb. 21, 2022, 8:42 p.m.

Ooooh, that was SO delicious! <3 Thank you for sharing the recipe.

I have been a fan of your work for a long time and really enjoyed trying meal after meal and have always been super happy with the outcome, taste and joyfulness of the process of cooking (not meaning to be a heretic but for me it is similar to meditation).

Please keep up the fantastic work and for the the both of you: stay as wonderful and awesome as you are.

Love and a big hug
Bekka

PUL Team - Feb. 22, 2022, 4:51 a.m.

Aw, a sincerest thank you for the kind words and support, Bekka - means so much! Sending a big hug back your way 🤗


Levina - Feb. 9, 2022, 1:49 a.m.

It's yummy 😋😋😋 and again the website is awesome, I can switch 3 portion to 4 easily (got too many cauliflower). Love your work, thankyou for having us in mind when making this website. I know it is not easy. The curry is yummy, me and my husband are enjoying it. We never know cauliflower could have such a rich flavor.

PUL Team - Feb. 9, 2022, 2:02 a.m.

We appreciate the kind words, Levina, it means so much! Thank you for the support 🌻


Roxanne Thibodeau - Feb. 4, 2022, 5:25 p.m.

This has become our go-to curry recipe! Love it!


Jule - Feb. 2, 2022, 8 p.m.

This was an awesome dinner I was able to toss together with ingredients I had on hand. I only subbed the spinach with mangold and the cherry tomatoes with sundried oiled tomatoes because tomatoes aren't in season right now. Very warm, umami-packed and cozy. This could become a comfort food in my household. Was served with white rice.

Tip: if your cauliflower comes with the leaves, either save them for a stew or chop them and add.

PUL Team - Feb. 3, 2022, 4:59 a.m.

Mmm wonderful modifications, Jule, and such a lovely tip for the cauliflower leaves!


LibraryMolly - Jan. 26, 2022, 2:41 p.m.

Had it for dinner last night. It was delicious!


Marta - Jan. 24, 2022, 8:49 p.m.

This is one of the best curry I have ever made. I was vegan for a while and used to go to your website for recipes every day.I cooked many recepies from your blog and I loved everything I cooked!
I am not vegan anymore but I cook this curry often as it's absolutely delcious!!!
Thanks Sadia😊🙌

PUL Team - Jan. 27, 2022, 1:33 a.m.

Aw it means so much, Marta, thank you for the glowing review 🥰


Salome von Stolzmann - Jan. 24, 2022, 7:04 p.m.

So amazing. Delicious and Creamy


Tina - Jan. 24, 2022, 10:02 a.m.

I have been cooking this lovely curry for a while now and I love it SO much. I will make it today and try adding red lentils instead of brown ones. Thank you for all the amazing recipes. Love from Germany!

PUL Team - Jan. 26, 2022, 6:10 a.m.

So glad to hear, Tina! Sending the biggest hug to Germany❣️


Dorota - Jan. 19, 2022, 2:52 p.m.

OMG Sadia, I got addicted to this meal!
And once you try and follow the recipe couple of times, it's so easy and fast to make. It tastes very good also as defrosted option (I am on my own, do usually would freeze 2 portions for evenings when I am not in the mood for cooking from scratch). De-li-tious!
Sending big hugs and lots of love to both od you!

PUL Team - Jan. 20, 2022, 1:20 a.m.

Hi Dorota! We're so thrilled the curry is being enjoyed and sending an abundance of love back 🤗


Caitlin - Jan. 15, 2022, 7:16 p.m.

This is a favourite that we cook up so often! It’s such a warm, comforting, nourishing, tasty and quick meal that we enjoy all year round. Thanks so much Pick Up Limes!

PUL Team - Jan. 15, 2022, 8:32 p.m.

Oh, Caitlin, we appreciate the kind words so much - thank YOU 😃


Christine - Jan. 12, 2022, 9:04 a.m.

Wow, wow, wow - this curry is delicious! My husband and I have tried many curry recipes off the internet and this one is by far the best. We didn’t have lentils so substituted cooked chickpeas. Is it a bad thing to want to eat this every night...?? 😋

PUL Team - Jan. 12, 2022, 8:53 p.m.

Awe it means so much, Christine! We're so thrilled the curry is being enjoyed ☺️


Julie - Jan. 8, 2022, 7:21 p.m.

I just live all your curries! They are the perfect confort food for winter evenings. Thank you!🧡

PUL Team - Jan. 10, 2022, 1:58 a.m.

We're so thrilled they're being enjoyed, Julie, thank you 🤗


Katrien - Jan. 7, 2022, 7:28 p.m.

This is the best curry I've ever tried! So many spices and so much flavor!

PUL Team - Jan. 7, 2022, 9:37 p.m.

A huuuge compliment, Katrien, thank you 😃


Amanda - Jan. 7, 2022, 2:26 a.m.

Wonderful, warm and hearty. Everything I want during the cold winter months.

PUL Team - Jan. 7, 2022, 5:49 a.m.

Woohoo! So glad to hear, Amanda☺️


AJ - Nov. 30, 2021, 8:24 a.m.

Delicious !!!


Miranda - Nov. 28, 2021, 12:25 a.m.

This recipe is one of my absolute favorites. I always feel so full and all around happy after having a bowl. I've also tried it with potatoes instead of lentils, and added other vegetables just to test - this recipe is so versatile.

Very tasty. 15/10.

PUL Team - Nov. 28, 2021, 11:02 p.m.

Mmm sounds so lovely, Miranda, thanks for the insight 😃


Yasmin - Nov. 27, 2021, 11:13 p.m.

HIya,
This looks great! I am very short on time so was hoping to turn this into a one pot meal, do you think frying the cauliflower and then adding tomatoes and lentils, leaving it to cook together will make it taste very different?
Thanks!

PUL Team - Nov. 28, 2021, 11:01 p.m.

Hi Yasmin, that's a great idea to speed up the recipe! The cauliflower may be a tad crunchier but it should still be delicious 😊 We hope you enjoy the curry!


Tim - Nov. 18, 2021, 1:35 p.m.

This was excellent, rich in taste and textures.
I added a dried black lemon (grounded in a coffee blender), which worked perfectly with the other spices and added an earthy sourness.
One that I marked to do again.

PUL Team - Nov. 19, 2021, 1:54 a.m.

Ooo a delicious addition, Tim, thanks for the insight :D


Monika - Nov. 14, 2021, 10:02 a.m.

This curry was soooooo delicious! I put some oven roasted sweet potatoes in there too with cauliflower, amazing. I really liked boiling the lentils and roasting the vegetables in the oven first, because I'm so bad at timing how long all of them will take to cook. Normally some of the ingredients are perfect, some overcooked and some stay raw. But not with this recipe! This will be our favorite from now on for sure! Thank you, Sadia! ❤️❤️❤️

PUL Team - Nov. 14, 2021, 8:48 p.m.

Oh, Monika, we're so thrilled to hear the wonderful review! Thank you for taking the time to share with us 💚


Celina - Nov. 10, 2021, 11:30 p.m.

I made this for my family today and every one loved it! Even my meat loving dad said: "And there is no meat in here? Wow you don't even need meat in this meal". That made me so happy 😊 Thank you Sadia and PUL Team for inspiring me and many others with your amazing recipes ❤️❤️❤️

PUL Team - Nov. 11, 2021, 1:49 a.m.

Hi Celina! Aw this means so much. Thank YOU for the kind words and review ☺️


abc - Nov. 5, 2021, 3:58 a.m.

Meh

PUL Team - Nov. 5, 2021, 6 a.m.

Hi Abc 😊 Thank you for taking the time to share the review with us. Do let us know if you have any feedback for the recipe as we'd love to improve and grow if possible!


Alison - Oct. 9, 2021, 7:41 p.m.

The weather is finally starting to become cooler here and I was craving something cozy to make...this definitely hit the spot! I stumbled across your website/this recipe looking for a cauliflower & lentil dish and am beyond happy that I did. It was simple to make, used ingredients that I usually keep in the house already, smelled AMAZING the whole time it was being prepared (enough that both my girls came downstairs asking what smelled so good :) At 6 & 8 this is a HUGE win, haha) and wonderfully delicious & comforting when we had it at lunch. My girls asked whether I could send it in their school lunches...another huge win for this house. Thank you so much! It's definitely going to become a regular for me and my girls! Looking forward to exploring your site more.

PUL Team - Oct. 10, 2021, 12:20 a.m.

Hello Alison, aw we appreciate this so much! Thank you for taking the time to share the incredible feedback and kindness. Sending lots of love to you and your little ones 🤗


Sandra - Oct. 4, 2021, 6:13 p.m.

Made this today for the second time, gosh, this is so so good! I love the roasted cauliflower and the spices mix. ❤️

PUL Team - Oct. 4, 2021, 6:43 p.m.

So happy the curry was enjoyed, Sandra, thank you 😃


Anne - Oct. 2, 2021, 12:14 p.m.

Delicious !


Natalie Smith - Sept. 27, 2021, 4:55 p.m.

Is this spicy? I would like to make this for my family, including 3 young children

PUL Team - Sept. 29, 2021, 6:24 p.m.

Hi there, Natalie! Thanks for the question. The curry does have a hint of spice, which may be strong for little ones. We'd recommend omitting the garam masala or adding it to taste just in case. We hope you enjoy the recipe if you're able to give it a try 🤗


Cecilia - Sept. 26, 2021, 12:17 a.m.

You have seriously outdone yourself here! This curry has the most exquisite flavour of any curry we've ever made. A new staple in our household and bonus points, we can eat it meat-free! Thank you Sadia!

PUL Team - Sept. 26, 2021, 5:47 p.m.

Awe we appreciate this so much, Cecilia! Thank YOU 😊


Rowan Reardon - Sept. 21, 2021, 12:53 p.m.

This recipe is definitely a keeper. Beautiful flavours and such a lovely colour. I've been experimenting with different variations. Tonight I used red lentils, and roasted up half cauliflower and half sweet potato (left out the cherry tomatoes for this one). Stirred in lots of fresh coriander and sprinkled with cashews when serving. Thanks Sadia and team for all the cooking inspo!

PUL Team - Sept. 22, 2021, 4:45 a.m.

Ooo that sounds so tasty! Thank you for sharing, Rowan 😃


Nikki Ashton - Sept. 19, 2021, 7:31 p.m.

I love this dish and make it all the time. So quick and simple to make. Very scrummy!


Tipi - Sept. 10, 2021, 12:29 a.m.

An amazing dish. We are not vegan but we enjoyed it a lot. I was a bit sceptical before adding cinamon but it combined perfectly with the rest of the plate. We loved roasted cauliflower so much that probably will do it as a snack. And for sure will repeat the whole dish in the winter season.

PUL Team - Sept. 12, 2021, 3:03 a.m.

Such a lovely compliment, Tipi, thank you for sharing the kind words 😃


Neil M - Sept. 2, 2021, 9:58 a.m.

Really tasty curry, loved by our household. Easy to make, as I said very tasty and perfect for warming us up during our typical Scottish summer weather☔!
Great with a wee dram.
Thanks for another great recipe.

So happy the recipe was enjoyed by your household, Neil! Hugs to Scotland 🤗

I grew up cooking with "just add a can of coconut milk" packet curry pastes and have never really made curries from scratch... until today.

This tasted AMAZING and it was so easy to make! We're not vegan, but we often enjoy a veggie-packed meal three or four nights a week and this will definitely stay in the rotation! This time, we ate it with Malaysian roti, but we will make turmeric rice to go with it next time! So, so so yum.

PUL Team - Aug. 25, 2021, 6 a.m.

Aw we're so glad to hear, Winnie, thank you! Happy cooking :D


Erin - Aug. 18, 2021, 12:53 a.m.

Another amazing recipe!! It is so flavorful and comforting. It's a regular meal in our house. We make a big batch and freeze it for easy weekday dinners.
To keep it low waste, I roast the cauliflower with the stalk and leaves, they become tender when roasting. I also usually roast some potato, broccoli and/or cabbage for a very hearty curry!
When we don't have naan or time for rice, I cook some vegan crepes and they are perfect for scooping up the curry!

PUL Team - Aug. 18, 2021, 5:06 a.m.

Ooo love to hear about your experience with the curry, Erin, thank you! Vegan crepes sound delicious 😍


Noa - Aug. 17, 2021, 9:01 p.m.

I just keep coming back to this curry, it's so good!


Philine - Aug. 8, 2021, 3:07 p.m.

I just cooked this meal and it tasted amazing! It's sunday and my fridge was kind of empty and i used the option to inculde what i have and this great recipe came out and i loved it! I will definitly cook it again. I love the website and all of the clever functions!


Lana - Aug. 7, 2021, 7:43 a.m.

Love this curry. Ultimate comfort food. This curry is what changed my mind about cauliflower. Used to loathe cauliflower, but as Sadia showed, the trick is to roast beforehand. Total game-changer.

PUL Team - Aug. 8, 2021, 9:46 p.m.

We're so thrilled to hear this, Lana, thanks a bunch for sharing 🤩


Linh - Aug. 3, 2021, 3:18 p.m.

I absolutely love this recipe! The spices and ingredients work perfectly together. Thank you so much for sharing it.


Michely - July 29, 2021, 6:13 p.m.

My husband and I love this recipe! It's already a recurring favorite in our house, as it is very filling and the flavors are amazing. Love from Brazil!

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 11:46 p.m.

So glad you're enjoying the curry, Michely! Lots of love to Brazil 💚


Joy - July 25, 2021, 7:41 p.m.

My favourite go to curry in Winter for the past 2 years.
I've never roasted cauliflower before this recipe and now I can't eat it any other way! All the spices work really well in this recipe.


Christina - July 25, 2021, 6:35 p.m.

This is honestly one of my all-time favorite curry recipes. The spices work so well together, and roasting the cauliflower really takes this curry the extra mile. In my opinion, it also comes together relatively quickly, especially when you've made it a few times. I almost always use frozen spinach in this recipe, which is a little cheaper than fresh spinach (especially in the winter months, when we make this).

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 5:24 p.m.

Thank you for the glowing feedback, Christina, it's so appreciated! Frozen spinach is a great idea 😊


Meg - July 25, 2021, 4:31 p.m.

We've made this a few times this past year and it's literally the ONLY reason I buy cauliflower. I am usually very bored by cauliflower, but now I get super excited when I buy one because I know it's going to make this amazing dish. It's got a creamy, warm and comforting taste. Highly recommend!

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 5:16 p.m.

We appreciate this so much, Meg, and are so happy you're enjoying the curry 🤗


Chloe Le Breton - July 24, 2021, 6:32 p.m.

Hands down my favourite curry recipe in existence! You can make some obvious substitutions based on what you have in your cupboard or your preferences, such as lentils for chickpeas etc - but it’s simply perfection! I love the cooked cherry tomatoes in this recipe & this method makes a boatload of curry for the week or for freezing. It takes a little more time than some of the other PUL curries, but well worth it for the deliciousness & bulk of curry that it makes <3

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 12:09 a.m.

Ahh you're too kind, Chloe! Thank YOU for being here and for sharing the glowing review 🥰


Justin - July 24, 2021, 12:13 a.m.

This is one of my favourite curry recipes, especially during the winter time!


Nicole - July 23, 2021, 12:12 a.m.

I've never made curry before so I was a little nervous but this recipe was so easy to follow! I substituted to light coconut milk and everything came together great.


Sonia - July 22, 2021, 9:03 p.m.

Very nice recipe! We like to make this a lot during the cauliflower season. I do however recommend to keep a close eye on your oven. The first time my cauliflower was burned. I now bake mine at 180C for 30 min. Apart from that, very tasty and also works great as lunch; I then add the rice on top so it does not soak.

PUL Team - July 23, 2021, 5:14 a.m.

Thanks for the feedback, Sonia, we're so glad you're enjoying this one 🤗


Tanja - July 16, 2021, 3:47 p.m.

This is SO delicious! I've already made the curry several times for me and my family :)


Catalin - July 11, 2021, 11:32 p.m.

I noticed that this has been the recipe I come back to the most. No other has brought me so much joy to share with others and I recommend it all the time because it is so warm, filling and wholesome. Thank you so much for doing what you're doing.

PUL Team - July 17, 2021, 2 a.m.

Aww so happy to hear, Catalin, thank you for the review :)


Gillian - July 11, 2021, 9:43 a.m.

Love this recipe! I return to it all the time! Even if you have to adjust the spices a bit based on what you have it’s still always amazing. I also freeze it sometimes.

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 5:55 a.m.

Love to hear reviews like this, Gillian, so glad you're enjoying it!


Lorraine - July 10, 2021, 1:17 p.m.

J'adore les curry et découvrir de nouvelles variantes est toujours un plaisir ! Même ceux qui n'aiment pas le chou-fleur se laissent tenter et l'odeur est divine

PUL Team - July 15, 2021, 7:44 a.m.

We're so glad you're enjoying the curry, Lorraine, thank you for spending some time to share with us 🥰


Paulina - July 10, 2021, 1:17 a.m.

Love this recipe! Easy, filling, and super tasty. I exchanged the lentils for chickpeas and it's still delicious. Perfect for meal prepping as it holds well in the fridge for 5-6 days.

PUL Team - July 15, 2021, 5:04 a.m.

A delicious substitute, Paulina! Thank you for sharing 🥳


Max - July 9, 2021, 6:49 p.m.

Alright, this is definitely going on my favorites list! Very flavorful and just overall delicious. Mine came out a little liquidy, but it ended up being perfect as the rice soaked it right up. It's a really great way to use up leftover veggies in your fridge too.


Evelina V - July 9, 2021, 1:10 p.m.

This is by far my favourite curry ever. Every time we cook this I'm amazed of how flavourful it is and much we enjoy every single bite. Thank you Sadia and PUL team for sharing 😊
P.s. You did an awesome job with this website. Congrats 🥳

PUL Team - July 13, 2021, 4:47 a.m.

An incredible compliment, Evelina, thank you so much 🥰


CJ - July 9, 2021, 8:15 a.m.

LOVE this recipe! More Indian inspired flavors pls :)

PUL Team - July 13, 2021, 7:18 a.m.

The request is noted down, CJ, thanks a bunch 😃


Dan - July 8, 2021, 11 p.m.

Phenomenal! Tastes delicious and is so easy to make in the middle of a busy week. You have to try this for yourself.


Mynfel - July 8, 2021, 9:53 p.m.

Absolutely love this recipe…now my go to curry. And fantastically the whole family (with some rather fussy eaters included) loves it too. Delicious! Thanks so much for the idea and inspiration x

PUL Team - July 11, 2021, 3:28 p.m.

Ooo one of the best compliments, Mynfel! So happy your family is enjoying the curry ✨


Victoria - July 8, 2021, 9:42 p.m.

This one fell a little short on flavor for me. Maybe it's because we didn't put enough roasted cauliflower in.

PUL Team - July 13, 2021, 4:16 a.m.

Thanks for the honest review, Victoria! It's really helpful to help us improve. Using fresh spices and adding more if desired may help if you give the recipe another try 😊


Pien - July 8, 2021, 6:34 p.m.

Simply the best curry recipe!


Nicole - July 6, 2021, 8:48 p.m.

Is it ok to use green lentils instead of brown? Really looking forward to making this.

PUL Team - July 7, 2021, 7:29 a.m.

Hi Nicole, feel free to use green lentils! We hope you love the recipe 😃


Gill S - June 24, 2021, 11:10 p.m.

This is the best curry I’ve ever had!! It was amazing, I didn’t stop saying wow the whole way through. Absolutely love all your recipes but this is my favourite so far!!

PUL Team - June 25, 2021, 5:15 a.m.

We're so glad you're enjoying the curry, Gill, thank you!


Tiff - June 22, 2021, 6:10 p.m.

This meal has quickly become a favorite in my home. We love it.


Diana te Braake - June 21, 2021, 3:22 p.m.

Ooeh this looks delicious, the only shame is that I can't eat cauliflower! Do you have any suggestions for a replacement veg that you think would go well instead (I can't eat broccoli either unfortunately)? Thanks for the amazing platform you've created, you've really become my go to for yummy wholesome meals.

PUL Team - June 22, 2021, 5:12 a.m.

Thank you for the very kind words, Diana! Perhaps carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms, or more spinach are a few ideas. You could also try with any other vegetables you tend to enjoy. We hope you love the curry 😃


Maya - June 6, 2021, 6:46 p.m.

At first I was a bit scared to try this recipe because as much as I love all these spices, I thought it would be quite heavy for me but it turned out to be innnsanely good. It will definitely be one of my go-to's. Thank you so much! And I'd like to add that all your recipes, articles and videos have helped me so much to grow a healthy relationship with food and it showed me how easy and enjoyable it can be. I'm so grateful for you Sadia ❤️

PUL Team - June 6, 2021, 10:10 p.m.

Oh, dearest Maya, this is so incredible to hear and truly means so much 🥰 We're so grateful you've been enjoying the PUL content and have allowed PUL to be part of your journey with food ✨


Carolyn - June 2, 2021, 11:53 p.m.

This is one of my go-to recipes, it’s so delicious! And I love that I always have the ingredients in my pantry so it comes together quickly. Thank you.


Lucia - May 28, 2021, 2:35 p.m.

Very yummy! I didn't have garam masala so I just added a little bit more of the other spices. I also added some red lentils because I didn't have enough brown lentils :) My husband was wowed ;)

PUL Team - May 30, 2021, 7:48 a.m.

Love how you adapted the recipe, Lucia!


Anita - May 24, 2021, 1:50 a.m.

Fantastic recipe! Delicious, light and hearty at the same time! Thank you!


Cam - May 18, 2021, 7 p.m.

A favourite wherever I go! Definitely a go-to recipe. I haven’t had a single person say they don’t like it, even cauliflower sceptics. I love swapping the green lentils for red ones to make it even more hearty!

PUL Team - May 22, 2021, 6:13 a.m.

We're so honoured to hear, Cam! Thank you for the review 😃


Zofia - May 18, 2021, 4:46 p.m.

Great recipe! 😊


Ellen - May 17, 2021, 8:25 p.m.

I made this recipe today for the first time and it was really lovely. A little bit spicy, but perfect for my taste. But maybe I overdid it on the chilli powder :-) I served it with rice, it was a warming and nourishing bowl. Your recipes are always packed with lots of veggies and taste so good, really love them. Thanks so much for sharing!

PUL Team - May 22, 2021, 4:36 a.m.

We appreciate the review so much, Ellen, and super glad you're enjoying PUL recipes ✨☺️


Sadhbh - May 16, 2021, 1:51 p.m.

I've made this recipe more times than I can count. It's my go-to and it never disappoints. Everyone I've made it for always wants the recipe, it's just so good! I seriously can't recommend it enough!!!


Marcia Oliveira - May 13, 2021, 12:50 p.m.

Excellent recipe! I've cooked this curry to my friends, who were very suspicious of vegan food, and they loved it. An explosion of flavours and so easy to make. I've become a fan of roasted cauliflower thanks to this recipe. Thank you for creating and sharing such delicious and healthy recipes!

PUL Team - May 15, 2021, 9:14 p.m.

Ooo we're so happy to hear this, Marcia! So glad you're here with us 🤗


Carla - May 11, 2021, 8:52 a.m.

Great recipe, easy to make, full of flavor. Made it 2 times last week and it has become one of my favs. I ate it with naan bread and the second time I added some cashew nuts for extra crunchiness.

PUL Team - May 12, 2021, 4:35 a.m.

Mmm we love the addition of cashew for an added crunch! Thank you for the review, Carla 😃


Liz - April 21, 2021, 2:15 a.m.

Amazing recipe (haven't tried anything from PUL that hasn't been so far). Thanks for another great one to add to our rotation!

PUL Team - April 22, 2021, 2:54 a.m.

So glad you enjoyed the curry, Liz!


Rachel - April 15, 2021, 5:07 a.m.

This dish is so, so good. Every bite wows me. Second time making this, I added carrots, mushrooms and celery to the roasting pan. We're going to use the leftovers on buns tomorrow and try it as a "curry sloppy joe" sandwich.

PUL Team - April 16, 2021, 10:55 p.m.

Ooh the sloppy joe sandwich is a lovely idea, Rachel! Thanks for sharing 😀


Ivonne - April 7, 2021, 8:20 p.m.

Loved it! My husband said he loved the flavour, but missed something with a bit of crunch. Anything you can recommend? For me it was also the first time ever to toast cauliflower. Should that be the crunch..?

PUL Team - April 8, 2021, 6:13 a.m.

A wonderful question, Ivonne! You could experiment with roasted vegetables (such as more of the cauliflower or adding other types like carrots, peppers, and potatoes). Roasted chickpeas may be interesting to try or perhaps even slivered nuts such as cashews? Another idea may be to try whole seeds, such as coriander seeds or cumin seeds. Since the flavour of whole seeds is generally less concentrated than ground, this may need a bit of experimenting for flavours though! Let us know if you give any of the ideas a try 😃

Ivonne - April 9, 2021, 5:13 p.m.

Thanks so much! Like the idea of cashews or roasted chickpeas. Will let you know when I’ve given it another go 🙏🏻😊.


Nadia - April 7, 2021, 1:11 p.m.

I have to say, this recipe is a winner: easy to make, colourful on the plate and delicious.

PUL Team - April 8, 2021, 6:36 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Nadia! Thank you 🤩


Jasmine - April 6, 2021, 10:48 p.m.

So excited to try this recipe!! Is there a good substitute that you can give for the coconut milk? I am allergic to coconut and it's byproducts.

PUL Team - April 7, 2021, 3:46 a.m.

Hey Jasmine, that's a great question! The coconut milk helps thicken the curry and adds a delicious creaminess/richness. We haven't tested these out, but possible substitutes could be soy creamer, greek yogurt, oat milk, or cashew cream (soaked cashews pulverized). Let us know if you test any of these out 😀

Jasmine - April 10, 2021, 12:16 a.m.

I tried the greek yogurt. It gave the recipe a tang that needed to be balanced, so I added 1 teaspoon of sugar. The family really enjoyed it! Thank you so much!!

PUL Team - April 10, 2021, 2:37 a.m.

So glad the family enjoyed it, Jasmine! Thank you for testing it out and letting us know :)


Chavara - March 28, 2021, 4:20 p.m.

Just made this, sooo amazing 😍

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 10:21 p.m.

So happy you enjoyed the curry, Chavara 🤗


Felicia - March 22, 2021, 9:21 a.m.

My favourite curry recipe! So delicious and hearty!

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 1:51 a.m.

What a compliment! Thanks, Felicia 🤗
