Freshly ground coriander seeds have a beautiful citrusy essence and really make a difference in this dish. Grind the whole seeds in a spice grinder or mortar and pestle right before cooking. Pre-ground coriander works here but will be far less aromatic, especially if it’s more than a few months old.
This quick stir-fry is delicious paired with plain yogurt, alongside roasted chicken or pan-seared lamb chops.
You can dial down the heat in this dish in two ways: by omitting the spicy dried red chiles entirely and by removing the ribs and seeds from the jalapeño. Use a small spoon to scoop out both seeds and ribs in one quick swipe and give the chile a quick rinse before chopping it.
I loved this recipe. I make another version of stir fried cauliflower with a combination of warm spices. Try it at http://omnivore-almostveg.blogspot.com/2011/10/cauliflower-with-potatoes-and-peas.html
This is tasty, easy, healthy, and only takes one pan to make. What more could you ask for? I've made it numerous times and it's a consistent winner.
