Cauliflower Cheese


1 medium cauliflower, cut into florets

50 gm butter

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

A pinch of chili powder

300 ml milk

50 gm plain flour

125 gm cheddar cheese, grated

1/4 tsp ground white pepper

1/4 tsp salt

1 green chili, finely chopped

1 tsp English mustard


Preheat the oven to 180C.

Wash the florets and cook them in a pan of boiling water for 5-7 minutes.

Remove and drain.

Melt the butter and tip in the cumin seeds followed by the chili powder. Add the milk and flour and mix until smooth, stirring constantly. Tip in the salt, pepper and mustard.

Add the cheese, leaving a little to sprinkle on top.

Pour a little of the sauce to cover the base of an ovenproof dish and then add the florets.

Then spoon over the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with the leftover cheese and the green chili.

Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
