4 tablespoons thickened cream
1kg head cauliflower, leaves removed
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
50g (½ cup) pre-grated 3 cheese blend
Pkt roti bread, cooked (optional)
3 Method Steps

Step 2Cut the core and large inner stalks from the cauliflower (1kg head cauliflower, leaves removed), careful to keep florets intact. Brush florets with oil (2 teaspoons vegetable oil) and remaining butter chicken paste. Place in a small roasting tray cavity-side up. Spoon the chicken mixture into the cavity, and use the back of the spoon to push to ensure the cavity is fully stuffed. Add 60ml (¼ cup) water to the roasting tray. Cover tray with foil and roast for 45-50 minutes. Remove foil and sprinkle with cheese blend (50g (½ cup) pre-grated 3 cheese blend). Roast for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is golden and a knife inserted into the cauli meets no resistance.
Step 3Cut into 4 wedges and serve with roti (Pkt roti bread, cooked (optional)) on the side, if desired.
If needed, trim a little off the top of the cauliflower so that it sits flat in the roasting tray.
