Very mild cauliflower and potato curry

Is it a curry? I don't know, it is kind of dry with Indian spices and I can find no better word for it. Very mild preparation, perfect for kids, and if you prefer it hot, just add some chillies. Serve with roti or flatbread with optional dollop of greek yogurt. Done in under 30 minutes.

My baby did not like cauliflower at first, but now she does. We didn't have to try too often and one day it just tasted nice I guess. Never give up if your baby does not like something the first time round. Try different preparation, different herbs and spices, different textures, and eventually it will click.
