Curry with Cauliflower, Carrots, and Potatoes

My sister left a few days ago and I’m totally bummed out. My parents bought her a plane ticket to Miami so that she could spend her birthday weekend with me. We laughed, we cried, we got on each other’s nerves, we forgot about getting on each other’s nerves, we shopped, we drank, we yoga’d, and we cooked this Curry 🙂
The spices are best added “whole” and not ground for a more fresh and intense flavor.
P.S. This could totally be made vegan by omitting the chicken and substituting the chicken broth for no-chicken-chicken-broth or vegetable broth.
Enjoy!
