Healthy Eating recipes : Spiced Cauliflower soup

I made this healthy eating soup for a family dinner this weekend and I thought it was yummy - not sure about the colour though - turmeric seems to give everything this off yellow colour - this is where lashings of chopped coriander comes in!! A great part of a healthy plan.

120g desiccated coconut (soaked in a little water first)
225g onions
4 garlic cloves
1/2 inch root ginger
1 red chili
1 tsp coriander seeds
Pinch of mustard seeds
Pinch of fenugreek seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp powdered turmeric
1 tsp paprika
225g potatoes – peeled and cubes
1 large cauliflower
1 400g coconut milk
400ml boiling water
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the cumin and coriander in a pan for a few minutes and grind.
Cook onions in a little water till soft and add garlic. Add chili, coriander, mustard, fenugreek, cumin, pepper, turmeric, paprika, ginger and cook for one minute, stirring
Add potatoes and desiccated coconut with the soaking water.
Cook until potatoes start to stick to the bottom of the pan.
Add the boiling water and cook till potatoes are almost done. Add cauliflower and coconut milk and cook for 12 mins.
Liquidise and blend till smooth.
Garnish with loads of coriander leaves
