Quick Cauliflower Green Bean Curry

We use a bottled curry sauce from Trader Joe’s supermarket with some added green beans and cauliflower to create a quick and easy side dish to an Indian-style feast. The prepared Punjab Spinach sauce has spinach, tomatoes, onions, lemon juice, fresh ginger, garlic, along with curry powder spices and a few other ingredients.

We start by heating a medium size pot with water to blanch our cauliflower. We rinse our head of cauliflower, and cut the cauliflower into small pieces. We mostly just keep the florets. When the water is boiling, we add a little salt and add the cauliflower pieces. We cook for just a minute or so until tender. Using a slotted spoon, we remove the cauliflower to a large pan. Next we add the Punjab Spinach Sauce, and the water that we first pour into the jar to remove all the bits of sauce, and bring the mixture to a boil. Meanwhile, we rinse the frozen green beans ina colander and then add these to the simmering sauce. We simmer for about 10 minutes.

We chop some cleaned cilantro and add this with a squeeze of lemon when we are ready to serve. We serve the curry over basmati rice.
