Easy Vegan Cauliflower and Chickpea Curry

This is another one of my “What’s in the fridge and cupboard” creations.

I used Garam masala, which is a blend of ground spices common in cuisines from the Indian subcontinent. It is used alone or with other seasonings. The word garam refers to “heating the body” in the Ayurvedic sense of the word, as these spices are believed to elevate body temperature in Ayurvedic medicine [Wikipedia]

I try to avoid dairy (I’m slightly intolerant) so this curry has coconut milk instead of yogur.

Which makes it vegan and also delicious!
