How to Make It

Step 1    

In a very large, deep skillet, melt the butter. Add the cauliflower and cook over moderately high heat until browned in spots, about 5 minutes. Add the onions, season with salt and pepper and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the turmeric, cumin seeds, cayenne and cinnamon stick and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the tomato puree and the water and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook over moderately low heat until the cauliflower is tender, about 15 minutes.

Step 2    

Stir in the peas and cook uncovered over moderate heat until the sauce is thick, about 5 minutes. Discard the cinnamon stick and season the cauliflower with salt and pepper. Transfer the cauliflower to a bowl and serve hot or warm.
