Introduction

Delicious, quick & fresh-tasting spicy meal or snack. This is great eaten hot or cold, I've even been known to take leftovers to school for breakfast, where everybody wants a taste. The potato & cauliflower are cooked in advance, and if you do all your chopping, measuring & grating too, the actual cooking takes minutes. If you're doing WeightWatchers, just weigh the potato and measure the oil - everything else is point-free!

    Coriander leaves are unavailable where I live, so I simply leave them out. Use them if you can, I'm sure they'll enhance the dish.
