Cauliflower cheese is the ultimate comfort food and here we’re giving it a Bengali twist using the favourite spice blend of the region known as panch phoran - a nutty blend of five different types of seed. It’s fairly mildly spiced but alongside it is a fiery tomato chutney that packs a bit of a punch! The only question is whether to serve it with a pile of plain basmati rice, a homely jacket potato or a stack of buttered naans.

I've just made this for the family. This is serious Sunday Night Comfort Food. One of the comments was that "this is the best cauliflower cheese that I've ever had" - the person that said that has eaten A LOT of cauliflower cheese! Absolutely amazing. Will make those winter evenings utterly delicious. Brilliant with a baked potato.
This is cauliflower cheese is sooooooo good! The perfect amount of spice. My spice-loving, French, non-vegetarian husband insisted on having it for a main course and wouldn't even wait for me to make rice or naan. `The spicy tomato chutney is a keeper too. This will be a staple in our house.
Really easy to make and very tasty. I served it along side other curry dishes, as a main for the vegetarians and everyone enjoyed it. It would go well with a roast dinner too. The relish is beautifully tangy, spicy but not hot - I'm a wimp when it comes to hot spices but this was just perfect. Loved it.
