This Cauliflower, Cashew and Carrot Curry is spicy and warm comfort food for a cold winter’s day. I decided to create this recipe one day when I got back from a chilly run-walk. When I had gotten back to the house after my exercise, I realized I needed something easy for dinner since I would be out all day at work.
Easy-to-make and delicious later
It is an easy dish to make in advance and is actually better served a few hours, or even a day or two, after you make it because it gives the flavors a chance to blend. It can be reheated quickly and served over brown rice with a salad to make a delicious healthy dinner.
