Best served with rice/grain of choice or even bread.
Finally, it’s Friday and with the slight nip in the air, we have been making craving warm curries/stews, so here comes our Vegan Cauliflower Tikka Masala Recipe.
This one is a keeper for days when you are in a hurry or even too lazy to cook….it’s not the thick gravy version but a quick sauteed and ready in 20 minutes recipe.
And the BEST part, the taste is absolutely Ahhhhmaaazing !!!!
It’s what I call Modern meets Traditional food, as the original recipe takes longer to cook and uses tons of butter, cream, and yogurt.
But this Modern or Fusion one uses a combination of Coconut Milk (canned variety) + few Cashews.
Also, before we go further, have you ever thought what makes ‘Tikka Masala’ that popular or distinctive in taste other than cream?
The answer is ‘Kasuri Methi or Dry Fenugreek Leaves’!
They are an extremely aromatic Indian herb who’s fresh leaves are hand-plucked and then dried carefully (restoring the amazing aroma).
You need to open the packet to smell that aromatic herb whiff that escapes everytime you might peek into the packet/box 🙂
Given above is a picture of a store bought ‘Kasuri Methi‘.
Always check the packaged date as the nearest ones would give you much aromatic and greener dried leaves.
A tablespoon of this aromatic herbs changes the whole taste.
It not only makes the dish aromatic but gives it this smokey taste.
I’ve been cooking this version of Vegan Cauliflower Tikka Masala Recipe for ages now.

Infact, my friend’s daughter loves eating this with a bowl of steamed rice. So you can also call it a perfect weeknight family dinner recipe too.
Also, the colors are simply gorgeous and as we inch closer to fall, the demand for this Vegan Cauliflower Tikka Masala goes even more 😉
It’s a PURE comfortfood bliss and you can even #mealprep with it.
