  1. Prepare your cauliflower by removing the tough outer leaves but make sure you keep the other leaves intact. Cut the cauliflower into steaks about 1.5cm thick and lay them on a baking tray.
  2. Mix all the remaining ingredients together in a bowl and pour the spiced oil over the cauliflower steaks, using your hands to make sure each side is well-coated. Leave them to marinate for 20 minutes.
  3. For the coriander chutney, put everything in a blender and blend until a smooth chutney is formed. If you have a small blender, start by blending everything apart from the herbs then slowly add the herbs in bit by bit.
  4. Place the steaks on your barbecue and cook for 10 minutes on each side, or until they are soft and evenly golden, and charred in places. Serve with the coriander chutney, and side dishes if serving as a main.
