Cauliflower and Swiss Chard Curry

I tried this the other day and it was so good I wanted to share. This recipe is balancing for both Pitta and Kapha and slightly increasing for Vata.

1 tbsp ghee or sesame oil
1 tsp whole cumin seeds
4 cups cauliflower florets
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/4 tsp cayenne, to taste
   - to reduce Pitta: omit
1 tsp Himalayan salt, to taste
1/2 ground black pepper
4 cups chopped Swiss chard
   - to reduce Pitta use 2 cups
1 tbsp lemon juice

In a large pot on medium-high, heat oil. Toast cumin seeds for 30 sec. Then add cauliflower, turmeric, cayenne, salt and pepper. Toss to coat with oil and spices. Add 1 tbsp of water. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook 3-4 minutes. Add chard and cook for another 3-4 minutes, covered, so vegetables can steam. When cauliflower is tender, remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice and serve over fresh cooked basmati rice. 
Makes 4-6 servings
