Curried Cauliflower and Potatoes is a healthy dish to make as a side or main course. They have an incredible butter and curry flavor to them. This authentic recipe came from a family friend who was raised in India—you’ll be fighting everyone at the table for the last bite. It’s that good!

Curried Cauliflower and Potatoes

This curried cauliflower and potatoes dish is the second one that we got from a family friend. Both were incredible! My husband and I were literally fighting over the last bites of this—it was so good!! It’s not often we fight over veggies, but these ones were worth it.

I have to admit that I’m not normally a huge cauliflower lover. It usually seems tasteless and bland, but the way this dish is made makes cauliflower taste incredible. The flavors in this dish are to die for. I’m definitely making this one again very soon since the whole family was crazy about it!

Low-Calorie Side Dish

Mickey, who we got this dish from, has a medical condition where she can only eat certain foods. Because of this, she does the most amazing things with vegetables. She knows which spices work well with vegetables and is an altogether amazing cook.

Since this curried cauliflower and potatoes dish is essentially just veggies, you can feel good making this one and enjoying it. This rich dish is savory and hearty…and low calories! Basically the best combination possible. 🙂

What to Serve with This Dish

We eat the curried cauliflower and potatoes as a main dish with a side of steamed rice and naan bread.

This also makes an excellent side dish. Serve it with some roasted chicken or lamb. Any extra leftovers can be enjoyed as a cold salad as well—kind of like an upgraded potato salad!

    I made this last night and I think it’s delicious and will definitely make it again. The only thing that I will do differently next time is put maybe 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin instead of 2 teaspoons. There is already a lot of cumin flavor from the cumin seeds and the cumin in my garam masala spice, and I think that will be enough next time along with the 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin. It was really good but I thought the cumin flavor came out way too strong.

    1. It’s an Indian Spice mix. There are several brands that make them, check near the asian foods in your grocery store.
