A recipe for making Cauliflower Korma which is an easy to make curry. Add other vegetables you like such as potatoes or courgette for varying textures.
The korma sauce is creamy with the addition of almonds and yoghurt but without the need to add actual cream. Omit the yogurt or use a soya version if you wish to make it dairy-free.
