Cauliflower and Chickpea Curry

This recipe is a creation of my husband’s, lucky me! Sean was on supper duty one evening and delivered an amazing tomato-based curry. He is pretty confident in the kitchen and can simply throw ingredients together. I had to get him to make this dish a second time to put the recipe on paper, not to mention it tastes awesome. To all those non-cooking partners out there - this recipe is for you! Easy-to-follow and you’ll gain points with the loved one:)
