Recipe Directions

Pulse the cauliflower a few times in the food processor so it is like rice. In your blender add: pine nuts, water, 1 tablespoon garam masala, special curry blend, salt, and ginger. Blend until smooth like heavy thick cream. Have a taste.
Mix the cream with the cauliflower, add the peas and the coriander and stir in by hand, or with your hands like I do!
To make the sweet sauce: Puree in your blender: dates, olive oil, banana, cumin, 1 teaspoon ginger, chilli pepper, salt.
Put a few dollops of the sweet sauce on top of the cauliflower curry. Try it without the sweet sauce, some prefer it that way.

Zoe's Thoughts

This is slightly adapted from the samosa recipe in “Raw food real world” Sarma M. and Matthew Kenney. You can make Indian crepes or even tortilla type breads and wrap the curry it up to make samosas with it, or just eat it with the sauce as it is.

I really loved this recipe! I used hempnut instead of pine nuts the curry sauce and it turned out great. I had to use agave for the sweet sauce because I didn't have any dates, though I wish I did because it would have made it even better I'm sure. Thanks for the recipe.

This was absolutely delicious, thanks Zoe. I followed the recipe exactly but wrapped the end product up in yellow and purple stemmed silverbeet (swiss collard) and I also added chopped snow peas and carrot to the curry mix. It was absolutely magic. The sweet sauce made too much for 2 people. Next time I will half the recipe. Other than that, it was A WINNER. I am interested in replacing the pine nuts with sunflower seeds as mentioned above along with the sweet potato.
TILL NEXT TIME.

p.s. I made these again with the sweet potato (dehydrated with sweet vidalia onions for 2 hours) and it took the recipe to hyperdrive! Really "grounded" the flavors. Also, I'm trying not to eat so much nuts so I substituted 1/2 cups of sunflower seeds for pine nuts in the sauce. Culinary Nirvana.

I have never eaten Indian food & have no idea what samosas are, but I love mild curry flavored stuff (I have eaten Thai food twice in my life). I also eat cauliflower ALL THE TIME, so it's wonderful to have something new to do with it. I also just found out about sweet brown rice (sproutable!) so I may try some of that in place of the cauliflower... Mmmm!!!!!!!

I made this for a vegan (not all raw) potluck over the memorial day weekend. I wish I could post a picture - but they disappeared SO FAST I barely got to try one. I took collards and wrapped them in a triangle shape (like samosas) and served them with the banana sauce. The only alteration I made to the recipe above -is I used very hot red chili powder (limo) and extra ginger for the filling and I added two tablespoons of fresh tamarind to the dipping sauce. People were *raving* - especially over the sauce.
Thanks for this one - it made me look like a raw-food-superstar :))
Next time I think I will dehydrate some sweet potato and add that to the mix to really get that samosa texture! yum!

Yeah, the sweet and hot sauce is really worth the bother because it takes the recipe to a whole different league! You can always jar it and use it for other things if you end up with some left over.

I'm new to Indian food, but just made & ate this. VERY yummy!! However I didn't make the sweet sauce & I'm thinking I should have to balance out the spicy. I have leftovers so I'll make the sauce for tomorrow & see.

I made the curry (without sweet sauce) and I used Chunky Chat as my curry blend. I have the Raw Food Real World book and I wanted to try that recipe substituting the macadamia nuts. This recipe uses pine nuts, so I used those. It was delicious! I wrapped mine in collard greens (just because they were in the fridge). I enjoyed them so much, that I stopped eating to make a similar banana-tamarind sauce to dip. Yumm!

I am going to try this with bellasera's "curried pancakes" recipe on this site for samosas... yum! That one is similar but without the apple since I don't have any apples at home right now, but I have the rest of the ingredients. Thanks Zoe! You are a wealth of deliciousness!!!

Indian crepes recipe from "Raw" is 1 cup shredded brown coconut+ 1cup ground flax + a couple of teaspoons curry powder blend, a little salt + 1 green apple. Blend together in blender and dehydrate till still flexible.
I dehydrate the cauliflower curry to make it warm sometimes but mostly I just have to eat it right away. It serves between 1 and 3 people depending on how greedy/hungry they are! It keeps well in the fridge, as with most raw food it tastes great the nest day.

Awesome. Thanks, Zoe, for posting this. I was going to post it but you beat me to it. lol
Do you ever dehydrate it a little to let it soften, or is it better fresh and crisp?
Also, do you have a recipe for Indian crepes that you would share? (Hurry with the recipe book... I must have it!) =)
