Bring water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. While the water is heating, cut the cauliflower head into florets. Rinse and drain. Place the cauliflower florets into the vegetable steamer and then place the steamer into the saucepan once the water is boiling. Steam for 7 minutes. Let the cooked cauliflower cool slightly and then transfer them into a food processor. Puree with coconut milk until smooth. Use rubber spatula to help fold in the cauliflower from the wall of food processor if necessary.
While the cauliflower florets are cooking. Cut the peppers, garlic, and cilantro. Heat a sauté pan over high heat. When the pan is smoky hot, add diced peppers into the pan without oil. Stir continuously to help remove the moisture from the peppers. Approximately 3 minutes. Use a spatula to push the peppers to the side of the sauté pan and then add 1 teaspoon of oil. Sauté garlic and peppers in oil until fragrant. Approximately 1 minute.
In a large bowl, mix the cauliflower puree, curry powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, ground black pepper, sautéed garlic and pepper (save 1 tablespoon for garnishing), and 2 teaspoons of chopped cilantro sprigs. Add more salt and seasoning to taste if necessary. Garnish with the remaining pepper and cilantro in the middle before serving.
