  1. Recipe Instructions Heat the oil in a small saucepan over a low heat and fry the fenugreek and chillies until they are just a shade darker. Remove from the heat and cool. Crush with a pestle and mortar, to make a paste using the oil in which they were fried. Put the cashews and green beans in a saucepan with the water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add the cauliflower and salt. Cover and cook for a further 5 minutes. Add the crushed spice paste and stir well. Remove from the heat. In a separate pan, heat the ghee or butter over a medium heat and fry the onions until they are a pale golden colour, about 6-7 minutes. Stir in the turmeric and fry for 1 minute. Stir this into the vegetables along with all the ghee or butter. Blend the coconut milk powder with the hot water and add to the vegetables. Return to the heat and bring to a gentle simmer. Add the tamarind and stir gently until dissolved. Cook gently without a lid for 5-6 minutes. If using lime juice, add now and remove from the heat and serve. Serve with beef curry or mutton curry and plain boiled rice. DISCLAIMER© Copyright 1996 - SelecTV Cable Limited. All rights reserved. Carlton Food Network /
