Spiced Cauliflower with Sesame Seeds
(http://www.101cookbooks.com)

Feel free to adjust the spiciness to your liking. And a suggestion for those of you averse to cilantro - try slivered basil instead.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil or clarified butter

1 teaspoon cumin seeds

2 medium yellow onions, finely sliced

a pinch of turmeric

fine grain sea salt

1 medium / 12 oz cauliflower, thinly sliced

4 dried red chiles, stemmed and halved

1-2 teaspoon sesame seeds, lightly toasted

1 garlic clove, grated

4 cm / 1 1/2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated

1-2 green jalapeno chiles, seeds removed, finely chopped

2-3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro / coriander

Preparation:

- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the cumin seeds and cook until they begin to crackle, just 30 seconds or so. Stir in the onions, along with the turmeric and a few pinches of salt. Cook, stirring often, until the onions caramelize a bit and turn lightly golden, roughly 7 - 10 minutes.

- Add the red chiles, sesame seeds, garlic, and half of the ginger. Continue to cook for another minute.

- Add the cauliflower and stir well. Cover the pan and cook the cauliflower over low-medium heat for 3 - 5 minutes, until just tender.

- When the cauliflower is nearly cooked, remove the lid, increase the heat, and stir in the green chiles and remaining ginger. - Salt to taste, sprinkle with cilantro and enjoy.
