Indian Roasted Cauliflower with Curry Yogurt Sauce

Apr 20, 2011 by

Back in NJ there was a Melting Pot – a pretty large chain fondue restaurant. It was one of my favorite places to eat, especially for a date night or a girl’s night out. The whole process – cheese, meat, dessert – often took hours, making it a perfect place to catch up or just enjoy each other’s company.

This may seem silly but one of the things I loved the most from this place was the sauces/dips that came with the main course – “green goddess” for the boiled potatoes: a sort of chives meets sour cream, plum thai sauce, “angry” sauce for the shrimp, and this creamy yellow curry yogurt sauce that I loved on chicken.

So when I decided to roast cauliflower tonight with some Indian spices, I decided to recreate the sauce to the best of my memory and pour it over the top. It took three or four tries and it’s still not exaaaaaaactly how I remember it, but it’s dang close and still delicious in it’s own right. The cool creamy curry sauce was perfect over the hot crispy cauliflower.

  1. Just delectable! ;)

  2. I just walked by a Melting Pot the other day in A.C. and thought of our fun night! I’m curry-stupid, so do you think this would work with the red curry powder I have? I’ve never used it and have no idea what it tastes like!

    That dish looks DELISH!

    Amazing flavor! And I used allspice…can’t wait to try this again with the right spices. My little family of 4 gobbled the whole head of cauliflower right up, fighting over the last bits! I think I’m going to make this next week for Thanksgiving dinner in place of mashed potatoes…my parents like Indian flavors, too, so this should be a big hit. Thanks!
