Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/355°F/ Gas 4. For the tagine, place the cauliflower on a tray and roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the edges start to brown.


In a large non-stick pan, over a medium heat, add the onion and garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until the onion starts to soften. Next add the ginger, cumin, chilli, cinnamon and coriander, and cook for a further 1-2 minutes. Then add the roasted cauliflower, chickpeas, chopped tomatoes and stock and leave to simmer for 15-20 minutes until thickened.


For the fritters, whisk together the gram flour, water, cinnamon, ginger, cumin and coriander in a large bowl, before adding the cauliflower florets.


To a non-stick frying pan over a high heat, add tablespoons of the fritter mix. Let each fritter cook for 1-2 minutes until browned then flip over and repeat. Once browned, transfer the fritters to the oven for 5 minutes to finish cooking.


Finally, for the 'rice', add the grated cauliflower and cashews to a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Keep stirring the ingredients for 3-4 minutes – the cauliflower should start to colour slightly and soften. Add the coriander just before serving.
