cauliflower, pea and paneer balti



1.Heat wok; roast sesame seeds until browned lightly. Remove from wok.
2.Heat oil in wok; stir-fry leaves and mustard seeds until seeds pop.
3.Add ground coriander, chilli, cumin and garlic to wok; stir-fry until fragrant. Add undrained tomatoes; simmer, stirring, about 2 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly.
4.Add cauliflower and the water; stir-fry until cauliflower is almost tender. Add peas, cheese and chopped coriander; stir-fry until hot. Remove from heat; sprinkle with sesame seeds.

You will find it cryovac-packed in some supermarkets or loose, in brine, in Indian food shops. For this recipe, since the cheese is stir-fried, haloumi makes a good substitute if paneer is not available.
