This is a really easy and very tasty curry that is satisfying enough to keep even the carnivore in the family happy.
I try and make sure we have at least 1 meat free day a week because even though we have a freezer full of meat this can also be the reason we eat meat at most meals.
We have heaps of beans and still a few eggplants going in the garden at the moment and the other day I found some frozen cauliflower that I froze at the end of last winter so they really needed using up. Perfect for this dish along with a few spices and some other basic vegetables.
