Curry Roasted Cauliflower with Sweet Green Peas was a real success. Everyone wanted some more … I will definitely  be doing it again.

We served the  Curry Roasted Cauliflower as a side dish to go together with a very delicious roasted chicken: Smoked Paprika Roasted Chicken.

What I used:

  • 1 carved chicken ( you can also use a whole chicken, I just wanted to have it done faster )
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup of cold water
  • juice from one lemon

Instructions:

 

Preheat the oven to 425 F.

Wash the chicken pieces. Place them in a glass baking dish or a roasing pan, skin up.

Drizzle the lemon juice and olive oil over the chicken. Sprinkle the above mentioned spices and herb: salt , pepper, turmeric, smoked paprika and oregano. Add the water between the chicken pieces.

Roast for about an hour basting at least ones with the cooking juices.

To check if the chicken is done, insert a skewer deep into a thick end of a thigh. If the juice running is clear  the bird is done.
