Method:

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
Remove any leaves from the cauliflower head and trim the stem, ensuring the cauliflower sits flat without rolling.
 In a mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, next level butter chicken spice blend, lemon juice, turmeric powder, and salt. Mix well to create a marinade.
Place the whole cauliflower head in a baking dish or cast-iron skillet. Pour the marinade over the cauliflower, using a brush or your hands to coat it evenly.
Cover the baking dish or skillet with aluminium foil, creating a tent-like shape to allow for steam to build.
Roast the cauliflower in the preheated oven for 40-50 minutes, or until it becomes tender. Remove the foil in the last 10 minutes of cooking to allow the cauliflower to develop a beautiful golden colour.
To check if the cauliflower is done, insert a knife or skewer into the thickest part. It should easily pierce through.
Once the cauliflower is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
Transfer the roasted cauliflower to a serving platter. You can serve it as a whole centrepiece or cut it into smaller wedges or florets.
Enjoy the aromatic and flavourful Next Level Butter Chicken Roasted Cauliflower as a main course or an impressive side dish.
Feel free to garnish the cauliflower with fresh herbs, a drizzle of lemon juice, or additional spices to add a personal touch. This recipe is sure to wow your guests and make a delightful addition to any meal. As a final step, I recommend adding a little more olive oil to the roasted cauliflower recipe. This will help to gather any remaining spices and flavours in the pan, creating a delicious drizzle to pour over the cauliflower when serving. Enjoy!
TO MAKE THE CREAMY PEA HUMMUS:
Blend all the ingredients in a high speed blender until you reach a desired consistency.
Season with salt ,adjust consistency with chilled cold water if needed.
Transfer to a serving dish, place Tandoori cauliflower and serve and enjoy.

Notes:

Roasting Options: If you don’t have an oven or prefer a different cooking method, you can also grill the whole cauliflower head. Preheat your grill to medium heat and cook the cauliflower, covered, for about 40-50 minutes, or until it’s tender.
Extra Seasonings: Feel free to add extra seasonings to the marinade based on your taste preferences. Consider including spices like cumin, coriander, paprika, or chili powder for an added kick.
 Toppings and Garnishes: Enhance the presentation and flavour of the roasted cauliflower by adding toppings and garnishes. Sprinkle some chopped fresh cilantro, mint leaves, or toasted sesame seeds over the cauliflower just before serving. A drizzle of yogurt, a squeeze of lemon juice, or a dollop of mint chutney can also complement the dish.
Serving Suggestions: While the roasted cauliflower is delicious on its own, you can serve it with accompaniments like naan bread, basmati rice, or a side salad for a complete meal. It can also be served as a side dish alongside grilled meats or other Indian-inspired dishes.
Leftover Ideas: If you happen to have leftovers, don’t let them go to waste. You can use the roasted cauliflower in wraps, sandwiches, or salads. Alternatively, chop it up and add it to soups or stir-fries for an extra burst of flavour. You can choose to serve this without Pea hummus, you can use carrot dip or plain hummus.
Remember, cooking is a creative process, and these tips are meant to inspire you to explore and make the recipe your own. Feel free to adapt and personalize it according to your taste preferences and dietary needs. Enjoy the journey and have fun experimenting with flavours!
