  2. Add 400ml water and bring to the boil. Add the cauliflower florets then reduce the heat to medium, and simmer for 5 minutes.Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Dice the Yutaka curry mix into small pieces and add them to the pan. Dissolve the curry mix completely before bringing the stock back to the boil.
