Heat vegetable oil in a large saucepan. Add the chopped onion, garlic, chilis, bay leaves, ginger, turmeric, garam masala and cumin seeds to the oil.
Stir together and cook until onions become creamy, golden, and translucent.
Add salt and mix well. Stir in the tomatoes. Bring to a simmer.
Add potatoes and cauliflower to the sauce and stir to coat. Cover and simmer for twenty minutes (or until potatoes are cooked).
Big book, big bore.
