- Cauliflower rice - Pulse florets in a food processor until broken up into ‘rice’-sized bits. Cook rice in one of two ways: 1) Microwave for 4 to 5 minutes and then fold in butter. Season with some salt and pepper; or 2) Heat a pan over medium-high heat and add butter. Saute cauliflower in heated butter for ~5 minutes, until tender but still crunchy. Season to taste with some salt and pepper. Watch this video for the full how-to on cauliflower rice. (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)
- Shrimp - Defrost, rinse, and dry.
- Onions / Garlic / Ginger / Jalapenos - Prep as directed and combine. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Heat a skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat. Add oil and then onions, garlic, ginger, and jalapeno to heated oil with a pinch of salt. Saute until softened, ~3 minutes.
- Add in tomatoes (including liquid) and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes until sauce reduces slightly.
- Stir in curry powder and spinach leaves. Saute until spinach is wilted, 3 to 4 minutes.
- Add shrimp and simmer until shrimp is cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
- While curry simmers, chop cilantro.
- Reheat cauliflower rice if made ahead.
- Stir lemon juice into curry and season to taste with some salt and pepper or more curry powder. Garnish with cilantro, and enjoy over cauliflower rice!
This is okay, but nothing memorable. I couldn't find paneer anywhere, so maybe this would have been better if I could make it properly.0 Helpful
kind of flavorless.0 Helpful
I asked Facebook where to find paneer. Score! This was incredibly flavorful. I left some jalapeno seeds in to kick up the heat.0 Helpful
Used queso fresco instead of paneer because I couldn't find paneer, and it worked great!0 Helpful
Couldn't find paneer so went with the tofu. It added substance but the texture was not really close. Would probably omit completely. I also doubled the curry powder -- would be better if spicier.0 Helpful
Too heavy on the garbanzo beans for us, and we just weren't terribly keen on the tomato base for the curry. Would possibly try it again with fake chicken instead of the chickpea version.0 Helpful
