Cauliflower Curry with Ground Beef

Cauliflower Ground Beef Curry

First of all, I am soo sorry guys, to everyone who tried to access my blog yesterday! There was a major outage with my hosting company, causing all of our (mine and Konrad’s and many other customer’s) sites to be down for over 12 hours.

Super frustrating for everyone involved but all seems to be fixed now. Alright, let’s have food then. After all it’s the best cure for everything, right?

Cauliflower Ground Beef Curry

Especially when it is hearty comfort food like this Cauliflower Curry over steaming white rice. There also are potatoes, carrots, ground beef and saucy tomatoes in here, all rounded up with an aromatic curry spice mixture.

The recipe as written out below does not make a spicy-hot curry. As is, it is a great starting point for all preference levels of spicy-ness. If you like a curry that makes you sweat increase the amount of red chili flakes and/or add cayenne pepper to the mix.

This delicious curry is so chock-full of veggies and bursting with flavor that I can’t help but feel good about eating it. And all the yummy-ness puts me in such a good mood that all *cough* hosting *cough* frustrations (and others) just fade away.

 

Update April 22:

Hostgator (our hosting company) extended their sincere apologies about the outage and issued a generous refund.

      Bummer! This recipe is family favorite of ours. It’s a huge hit time and again. This dish is more like Pakistani Keema than any Indian/Thai curry. Is that maybe the flavor you expected?
      I know that tastes vary for everyone, especially when it comes to spices. Was it the spice mixture that just wasn’t up your alley?

    Just wanted to drop a quick note to say my husband and I made this last night and we couldn’t get enough of it! We made ours a bit spicier and it was perfect for a cool(ish) Wednesday night. We’ll definitely be making this again!

        I made this tonight & it was absolutely awesome! The only change I made is that I added a chopped jalapeΓ±o pepper, some golden raisins & a bit less mild curry power & replaced it with garam masala. I also added some reduced sodium beef broth. My husband loved it so much that he had seconds.

          Thanks for your wonderful feedback Alice. Your changes sound delicious! Especially like the idea with golden raisins :)

      Thanks for this great review Lynn and for letting us know that frozen cauliflower works too. I totally agree that cutting cauliflower into rosettes can be quite time consuming :)

      I am sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy this curry Yvonne. I am very surprised it turned out dry for you. Did you add the water to the sauce before simmering? Also surprised it was tasteless. There is quite the spice mixture in this recipe. I am wondering if you maybe had a very large head of cauliflower that would absorb all the liquid and dilute the spice flavor?

    Making this right now – it has been simmering for over 35 minutes and potatoes are still not soft….
    I added water, etc.
    Let you know how it turn out tho .Thank You!

    • Regina says

      Uh oh. Were your potato dices on the bigger side? Next time I’d recommend adding hot broth (any kind) in order not to dilute the flavor/spices too much.
