Garbanzo Cauliflower Coconut Curry

 a couple months ago i tried something new. Curry. it was definitely a first for me, but i really needed to jazz up the menu with something different than our usual all american food and stir fry. i came across a few great recipes, made good curry, and finally perfected the curry recipe that i will make from now on. if you come to my home and request curry for dinner- this is exactly what i will serve you. it is fuvking ah-mazing. i feel i should also mention that my family hates cauliflower, but they really like this curry. in fact, despite the spiciness, my son’s favorite part of this curry is the cauliflower. so, without further ado….
