• Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. • Chop cauliflower into small florets. • Thickly slice carrot into half-moons. • Thinly slice brown onion (see ingredients). • Finely chop garlic.
• Place cauliflower and carrot on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with Mumbai spice blend and season with salt and pepper. • Toss to coat. Roast until tender and brown around the edges, 20-25 minutes.
TIP: If your oven tray is crowded, divide the veggies between two trays.
• Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a deep frying pan or large saucepan over medium-high heat. • Cook onion, stirring, until softened, 4-5 minutes. • Add another drizzle of olive oil, the Bengal curry paste (see ingredients) and garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute.
• Add basmati rice and currants, stirring to coat. • Add the warm water (1 1/2 cups for 2 people / 3 cups for 4 people) and vegetable stock pot, then bring to the boil. • Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove pan from heat. • Keep covered until rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10 minutes.
TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam, so don't peek!
• Meanwhile, roughly chop roasted almonds. Roughly chop coriander leaves. • When rice is done, stir through roasted veggies, almonds and 1/2 the coriander.
• Thinly slice long chilli (if using). • Divide roast cauliflower biryani between bowls. Top with a dollop of Greek-style yoghurt. • Sprinkle with chilli and remaining coriander to serve. Enjoy!
