From the Test Kitchen

Hearty, adaptable and hard to resist, cauliflower isn’t just for side dishes. In this recipe, its nutty, slightly sweet flavor takes center stage when oven-braised with warming curry powder and rich coconut milk. Aromatic basmati rice cooked with juicy golden raisins, ginger and fragrant Indian spices is the perfect accompaniment, while a quick chutney of cilantro and honey adds a refreshing burst of herbaceous sweetness.
