Sweet Cauliflower Curry

I have only had curry a few times, and even then it wasn’t true curry, it was more of a “curried” dish. My grandma makes some of the best curried chicken and potatoes which is the main inspiration for this dish. However as it turned out I did not have any potatoes, but lots and lots of cauliflower. Despite this fact, the dish still turned out great! Unlike a traditional curry, I did not use any coconut milk but instead used the more “Chinese/Japanese” way of making curry which is attained by using curry powder and curry paste. It is also much sweeter than the typical curry, but I think it tasted quite nice when paired with the cauliflower and beef. 

Let me just say that before making this recipe, I had been on a huge Indian food spree that left my taste buds worn out. So when my friend asked me how to make curry, it gave me a huge craving for some of my grandma’s curry, however I was also in the mood for something sweet. So instead of coconut milk, or yogurt, I opted for lots of curry some honey, and chicken broth!


Sweet cauliflower curry

sweet beef curry with cauliflower


• 1 oz. beef cut into 1/2″ pieces

• 1 large carrot roughly chopped

• 1 whole yellow onion roughly chopped

• 2 cups chopped cauliflower

• 1 small slice ginger about 1/4 inch thick

• 2 cloves garlic minced

• 2 tbsp. Soy sauce

• 2 tsp. Starch

• 2-3 tbsp. Curry powder

• 1 1/2 cups chicken broth

• 1 heaping tsp. Honey

• salt

• medium sauce pan

• 1 large tomato

It is very important in order to not get any gloppy clumps of starch, to add in the starch before adding any liquid. This will ensure that everything gets incorporated evenly.


  1. Cook the beef thoroughly in a pan and then set aside. I didn’t some more oil and heat it up then add in the carrots plus the little piece of ginger and stir for about a minute and then add in the onions and the garlic and cook stirring every so often until the onions be good to get a little bit brown.
  2. Add in the cauliflower and cook for about 2 minutes or until the cauliflower also begins to brown
  3. Add in curry powder and starch cooking for another minute then add in tomatoes, beef and soy sauce letting sit for another minute.
  4. Add in chicken broth and honey. Then reduce heat to medium and let simmer for about 20-30 minutes until all the veggies are nice and tender. If you need more chicken feel free to add more. To get a thicker consistency, cook it uncovered for the last five minutes. Season with salt to taste.
