  1. Put the oil in a 12-inch skillet, and turn the heat to high; add the onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to brown. While it’s cooking, trim the cauliflower and cut the florets into 1/2-inch-thick pieces.
  2. When the onion has browned a little, add the cumin seed and curry powder and cook about 30 seconds. Add the cauliflower, and stir, still over high heat, for another minute. Cut up the tomatoes, and add them to the pan along with their juice, 1/4 cup water and a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper. Cover, and turn the heat to medium-low.
  3. Cook 10 minutes, stirring once or twice. Add the chicken, stir, cover the pan again and cook 6 to 8 minutes longer, or until the chicken is cooked through. (If the sauce appears to be drying up at any time, add a little more water.) Stir in the lemon juice, taste and adjust seasoning. Garnish if you like, and serve.
