This is a yummy winter warmer served with sweet potato noodles for a healthier alternative to rice. Curries are one of my favourite dishes to cook and eat (of course)… It is also very easy to make and inexpensive too so don’t be taken aback by the word curry, once you’ve got your spices in hand the rest is simple. Sit back, get cosy and enjoy!
Cauliflower and Chicken Curry with Sweet Potato Noodles

(serves 4-5)


  • 2 chicken breasts, diced 
  • 1/2 a cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 6 chestnut mushrooms, cut into chunks
  • 2 tbsp, coconut oil
  • 400ml can coconut milk
  • 1/2 can coconut cream
  • 5 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
  • Salt & pepper and fresh coriander to garnish


  • 1 bayleaf
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 1tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 inch minced ginger 
  • 2 black cardamon pods
  • For the sweet potato noodles:
  • 3 medium sized sweet potatoes, spiralized 


  1. Heat a large deep pan with 2 tbsp of coconut oil.
  2. In another small non-stick pan heat and add the whole spices (cardamon, cumin seeds & bay leaf) and toast slightly to help release the fragrance and oils. Then grind in a pestle & mortar.
  3. Add these spices to the heated coconut oil together with the rest of your ground spices and minced ginger. Then add the onions and garlic and sauté until golden brown.
  4. Add the cauliflower, mushrooms and tomatoes and allow to simmer into a sauce.
  5. Next add the chopped chicken and leave to cook on a low heat.
  6. At this stage, bring a large pot of water to boil as if you were cooking pasta and then add your spiralized sweet potato noodles and cook until al dente.
  7. Once the chicken is nearly cooked, add the coconut milk and cream, stirring in well and leave to simmer until the chicken is done.
  8. Place a portion of sweet potato noodles into separate bowls, then add a generous amount of the curry and garnish with chopped fresh coriander.
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy!
