What makes this potato and cauliflower dish so fabulously fragrant? The mix of Indian spices, including turmeric for flavor and bright yellow color. Add a 15 1/2-ounce can of rinsed and drained chickpeas to the potato mixture about 10 minutes before the cooking time is up for more satisfying protein.

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in medium heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil. Stir in jalapeño, garlic, ginger, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, coriander, and turmeric; cook, stirring constantly, until spices are toasted and fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove skillet from heat and stir in salt.
  2. Combine potatoes and cauliflower in 4- or 5-quart slow cooker. Add onion mixture and stir until combined well. Cover and cook until vegetables are fork-tender, about 2 hours on High, gently stirring after 1 hour to prevent vegetables from sticking to insert. Divide evenly among 4 bowls. Top each serving with yogurt, mustard seeds, and cumin seeds.
