  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. In a large roasting tin, mix the cauliflower florets, paneer and red pepper with the oil, tandoori spice and some seasoning. Roast for 30 mins, then set aside to cool.
  2. Line a 2.5 x 20 x 30cm tin with nonstick baking paper. Beat the eggs in a large bowl, then add the cooled vegetables and coriander. Pour into the lined tin, sprinkle over the seeds (if using) and bake for 15 mins. Leave to cool, then slice into 12 triangles. Serve with tzatziki to dip, if you like. Will keep for 2 days in the fridge.

Tip: Not a fan of paneer? Try using tofu instead.
