cook 10 mins
  • 25 g (1 oz) raisins
  • 400 g (13 oz) small cauliflower florets
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1½ tablespoons medium-hot curry paste
  • 500 g (1 lb) ready-cooked steamed pilau rice
  • chopped coriander leaves, to garnish
  • flatbreads, to serve (optional)
  • Put the raisins into a heatproof bowl, pour in 2 tablespoons boiling water and set aside to soak.
  • Cook the cauliflower florets in a large pan of boiling water for 4–5 minutes, until just tender.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan and fry the garlic and spring onions over a medium heat for 1 minute to soften. Add the curry paste and stir for 1 minute to cook the spices. Add the steamed rice, the raisins and their water, then cover and cook over a medium-low heat for 2–3 minutes.
  • Drain the cauliflower and fold it into the rice. Spoon into dishes, garnish with the coriander and serve accompanied by flatbreads, if desired.
