    Looks amazing! I’ve yet to try gochujang. It’s on my must try list now. Have a great day Purabi!

    This looks like it has terrific flavor! I love fusion recipes like this – they’re always so much fun. Gochujang has great flavor, and I need to get some – I’ve been out of it for months, and don’t know why I haven’t replaced it. Good stuff – thanks.

      John, so you love gochujang too! Isn’t it a wonder ingredient? Today I made a simple egg curry and added just half a teaspoon of gochujang to give a spicy twist. We love this curry. It has veggies and seafood and goes very well with steamed aromatic rice. Thanks for your comment! 🙂

    I’m not at all familiar with gochujang but this fusion you’ve created with it sounds delicious. It just might be a bit too spicy for me, though. I guess I need to buy some gochujang and find out. 😉
    Thanks for sharing you recipe, Purabi.

      John, thanks! Oh, just give it a try. I am now addicted to gochujang. There is always a box of it in my refrigerator. I added it in many Indian curries and just loved the kick it provides!! It leaves the guests guessing about the secret ingredient behind the dish, you know.

    The color of this dish is stunning!! I have seen this curry paste in my Asian market… but since I could not read the writing…I was hesitant to get it. Now it’s a must try. 🙂

      Thanks! Just get one pack of gochujang and I guarantee, you’ll fall in love with this Korean awesomeness, if you enjoy spicy food. Have a great week ahead…. 🙂

    This looks SO good! Love all of the spices. I make a really spicy red chile paste that I think would substitute nicely for the Korean Gochujang. Might just have to give it a try.

    Purabi, I just read an article on cauliflower this evening and all the wonderful things you can do with it — creamy pureed soups, cauliflower “steaks,” steamed, roasted, etc. — but there was nothing like this wonderful, flavorful dish. What a treat to have a culinary friend with a sense of adventure in the kitchen! Your fiery sauce sounds delicious to me — lol, I was eating Sriracha sauce with a spoon after I brought some home from the market today. 🙂 I’m sure Gochujang sauce is ten times spicier/hotter, but paired with fresh cauliflower and prawns, it would be a lovely balance. Yum!

      Oh Kimby, you are always so sweet and kind! Your sweet words always make my day!! For me, the hotness is bearable. In fact, to be frank, now I prefer the taste of this paste over the commercially available red chilli powder here in India. It is now my ingredient of choice to increase the flavour of my curries!

    Not sure if I can fine the paste over here. It should be because our selection of ingredients from all the world are available in high end supermarkets. The curry is alive,the colour and the punchy flavors. If I can find the paste, will coin something along the same line. A fabulous curry for a good drench our rice.

      Nava, I am sure you’ll find it somewhere. Just see the picture of the container and keep that image in mind while shopping. I was introduced to Gochujang in Hong Kong, where it is available everywhere!

    I can smell it from here. This is my kind of dish – full of flavor and also simply done in a skillet. Thanks for another good one!

    Hot and zesty. This is the way my boys love their dishes. I would need to cool down my palate with a glass of your mango smoothie on the side. Delicious fusion dish!

      Thanks Bam! I love to do experiments like this in the kitchen. Those experiments which become successful become a part of my blog as my own recipes. A glass of chilled mango lassi would be great accompaniment with this for sure!

    Turmeric is one of my favorite spices. I use it all the time and it’s so good for you. I also love the combo of prawns and cauliflower in this!

    Beautiful recipe and concept. I am all about fusion but gochujang paste is a new one for me! I will pick this up on my next trip to the Asian Market. Love your blog.
