Green herb and coconut #cauliflower with crispy paneer crumbs is a light Indian-inspired #supper dish or zesty #sidedish. #vegetarian #Indianfood #recipe

This is an Indian-inspired cauliflower dish that is light, bright and packed with punchy flavours, courtesy of the lime-spiked mint and coconut chutney sauce.
