  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. In a bowl, mix the spices, oil and 1⁄2 tsp salt. Add the cauliflower, stirring to coat. Put on a baking tray and roast for 25 mins, turning halfway through, until the edges start to caramelise.
  2. Spoon the cauliflower into a serving dish. To serve, squeeze over the lemon wedges and scatter with the herbs.

Tip: Make the cauliflower in advance, then reheat in the oven, covered with foil, for the last 20 mins of the biriyani's cooking time.
