Gobi Dal

Fact: I bought a head of cauliflower for 54 pence last weekend

I know...54 pence...crazy....and...grown in Lincolnshire.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it...I just knew I couldn't pass up such a great deal.  Inspiration came in the form of Come Dine with Me on Sunday.  Sometimes inspiration comes from the least likely of places...but for me, 4 episodes of curry after curry I had a craving for something spicy and something currylicious. 

In my recipe scrapbook (that's right...I scrapbook recipes/cooking tips) I found a "everyday value" recipe from Olive Magazine, which I have also found for you here on their website. 

I cooked this down for about 20 mins longer than the recipe called for because the lentils were still pretty chewy and I wanted a really soft lentil base for the cauliflower...think indian take-away dal consistency.  As an extra special treat (considering the whole dish cost me about £1) I made a batch of the baked onion bhajis I blogged about way back in Jan 2010.
