400 ml coconut milk

For serving:
3 dl rice, jasmine rice, rye rice or bulgur, roasted cashew nuts or pumpkin seeds (I used roasted pumpkin seeds from my pumpkins).

Boil the rice or bulgur as instructed on the package. 

Mortar spices, cardamom and mustard seeds for the spice mixture and mix with the rest of the dry spices.

Fry the onions, garlic, chili, ginger and spices in oil while stirring until the onion is soft. Add the tomato paste and fry for 1 minute.

Add the cauliflower at the end and boil 4-5 min. Taste the pan with salt. Serve with rice and spices with cashew nuts and coriander.

Serve the curry with rice or bulgur and top with fresh coriander (if you don´t like coriander, take some other green like parsley or anything of your liking). Sprinkle some roasted cashew nuts or pumpkin seeds over.
