Spicy Indian Cauliflower

YES it is spicy!  I love it. Very very good. It would be perfect on a bed of rice. Think I will try that for my lunch tomorrow. I took this picture with my phone, it was red not brown.

1 medium head cauliflower, cut into small florets
2 tbsp oil
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup pureed tomatoes
1 tbsp ground coriander
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground cayenne
1 tsp sugar (I used a bit of agave)
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro

Steam the cauliflower until just tender, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion, ginger and garlic and cook, stirring until softened, about 5 minutes. Do not burn.
Stir in the tomatoes, coriander, cumin, cayenne, sugar, and salt.
Add the steamed cauliflower and cook, stirring until the cauliflower is coated with the spice mixture. add a small amount of water if the mixture is too dry. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook until the cauliflower is tender, about 5 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve immediately.
