Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, sliced

  • 200g small cauliflower florets
  • 2 sprigs fresh coriander, chopped

  1. Put the onion, butter and vegetable oil into a bowl. Cover with cling film, pierce a few times, then microwave on high (900W) for 5 minutes.
  2. Stir and microwave for a further 1-2 minutes, checking continuously, until golden brown. Set aside to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the daal ready-meal according to packet instructions. Boil the cauliflower florets until tender, drain and tip into a bowl. Add the daal, some chopped fresh coriander and a splash of hot water. Gently mix, then season.
  4. Divide between 2 plates and top with the onions and some fresh coriander. Serve with basmati rice.
