Vegetarian tikka masala with cauliflower. Beautiful Indian vegetarian dish with cauliflower, spices and coconut milk. When I was out with my father last Saturday, we had decided that the menu should consist of Indian dishes. But in order not to make the same recipes every time, we would like to try making a tikka masala vegetarian and adding cauliflower.

Vegetarian tikka masala with cauliflower

We served the wonderful dish with naan bread and jasmine rice - it all tasted so good that I would like to share the recipe with you. Our variant of tikka masala is a sauce of coconut milk, bell pepper, onion, garlic and tomato which is blended. After this, it is returned to the pan, spices and cauliflower are added and then it just simmers. It is an easy dish with a really good taste. Usually tikka masala is made with chicken, but this version with cauliflower turned out really well and I hope you will like the recipe too.

But now for the recipe for this wonderful Indian dish. I have indicated that there is enough for four people if rice is eaten with it. Serve the dish with jasmine rice, fresh coriander and perhapshomemade naan bread.

Just a curious question, why do they need extra spices? So besides garam masala?! Because when I google the spice, it is exactly the same as the extra spices in the recipe. My real question is: Can I put extra garam masala in, instead of the extra spices??

Hello :-) Not all garam masala contains exactly those spices, some also contain black pepper and I don't think that adding extra garam masala gives the same effect. But I think you can easily use it instead of the others, but it all depends on the garam masala you have.

Hi Stina
What are some delicious recipes, I am semi-vegetarian and am simply so happy to find your page. I have a question, do you have experience freezing this dish and possibly your recipe for daal? Or it makes the dishes boring. I am considering making a large portion so that I also have some for the freezer

Hi Tina,

I haven't tried freezing this dish, but I freeze it often. Then there is always a quick dinner in the freezer.

Hi Stina
Thank you so much for this recipe! You mention in 'How to' that you should chop the onions roughly, but you have not written in the list of 'Ingredients' that you should use onions, but just 'garlic'. How many onions are needed in the dish? And are they red onions or regular onions? If you have the opportunity to write it into the list that would be great.

Hi Stina. Thank you for your nice site which I really use a lot :)
Also a clarifying question, does the pepper need to be blended from a raw state?
Etc. Marlene
