Vegetarian Curry Recipe with Paneer and Cauliflower

This vegetarian curry recipe will surprise even a diehard meat lover! A rich and creamy sauce tops tender fried paneer and goes great with rice, along with fresh sliced veggies and a Greek yogurt and mint dip.

Vegetarian Curry Recipe Ingredients

  • 1/2 head cauliflower
  • 7 oz (200 g) paneer cheese
  • 1/4 c butter
  • 5 Tbsp tikka paste
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt

To serve

  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • Fresh mint or coriander
  • Rice


  1. Cut the cauliflower into small florets and cut the paneer into 1.5cm cubes.
  2. In a large frying pan that has a lid, melt half the butter over medium heat. Add the paneer and fry for 4 – 5 minutes, gently turning, until golden on all sides. Set aside.
  3. In the same pan, add the remaining butter and melt. Add the cauliflower and toss for 2 – 3 minutes until starting to lightly brown.
  4. Add 1/2 cup water to the pan and cover. Cook over medium heat for 4 – 5 minutes until the water has absorbed and the cauliflower is lightly steamed.
  5. Meanwhile, whisk together the tikka paste, cream and 1/2 cup greek yogurt. Add to the frying pan and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes until the cauliflower is almost cooked through. Add the fried paneer and stir through until heated.
  6. Serve over rice of your choice with additional greek yogurt and fresh mint or coriander.

Rice cooking tip: Bring a large pot of water to a boil (no need to measure). Add salt and stir. Add dry rice and cook, drain, cover, then allow to steam for 5 minutes. It turns out perfect every time! Cooking times: White rice 10 minutes, brown rice 30 minutes, wild rice 45-60 minutes.
