Roasting cauliflower brings out a delicious sweet and nutty flavour that complements this mildly spiced lamb curry. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our spicy lamb with herb and nut rice dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be re-heated more than once.
Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Toss the cauliflower in half the oil and place on a shallow baking tray. Season and then scatter with the cumin seeds. Roast for 15-20 minutes until golden and crisp. Meanwhile heat the remaining oil in a large saucepan and cook the onion for 3 minutes until soft. Stir through the ginger, crushed chillies, garlic, turmeric and coriander and cook for 2 minutes. Pour over the chopped tomatoes and 200ml (7fl oz) water and simmer for 5 minutes until thickened.
Fold through the lentils, diced lamb and spinach and cook for a further 3-5 minutes until the lamb has heated right through and the spinach has wilted. Serve with the roasted cauliflower.
