    Curried cauliflower salad recipe

    A curried cauliflower salad recipe for something a little fancy.

    Serves: 4


    50 g capers

    ½ shaved raw cauliflower

    ½ shaved red onion

    ½ bunch torn mint leaves

    ¼ bunch chopped parsley

    1 bunch watercress

    Salt flakes

    Cracked black pepper

    Curried cauliflower

    1 ½ cauliflowers

    1 tablespoon curry powder

    1 teaspoon turmeric


    Grapeseed oil

    5 curry leaves

    Tea-soaked raisins

    200 g golden raisins

    Earl grey tea steeped in boiling water for 4 minutes

    Curry vinaigrette

    2 shallots (finely diced)

    1 tablespoon curry powder

    200 ml apple juice

    Lime juice


    200 ml grapeseed oil

    Spiced labne

    Organic natural yoghurt (Barambah or Shulz)

    Lemon juice

    Ras el hanout spice mix




    For the curried cauliflower

    1. Cut cauliflower into evenly sized pieces, roughly 3-4 cm.

    2. Season with spices, oil and crushed curry leaves.

    3. Place onto tray in the oven and roast until the cauliflower is very dark in colour and very crispy around the edges.

    4. Allow to cool before mixing.

    For the tea-soaked raisins

    1. Strain the steeped tea and pour over the raisins and allow to soak for as long as possible. Preferably this should be done the night before, but a 10 minute soak will do.

    For the curry vinaigrette

    1. Sauté shallots and curry powder in a small amount of oil.

    2. Reduce apple juice by half.

    3. Add apple juice to the sautéed shallots and pass through a fine chinois (a conical mesh sieve).

    4. Adjust with lime juice, salt, sugar and vinegar.

    For the spiced labne

    1. Hang the yoghurt overnight to remove the whey.

    2. Whisk in the ingredients and season the taste.

    Putting it all together

    1. Place all ingredients in a large bowl, season with salt and pepper and dress with the curry vinaigrette.
