Step 1
Preheat oven to 350°F. Toast cashews on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing once, until golden brown and fragrant, 7 to10 minutes; let cool and coarsely chop.
Step 2
Meanwhile, finely chop fennel bulb and thinly slice stalks.
Step 3
Heat oil in a large pot and pop mustard seeds. Add fennel bulb and stalks, scallions, and sweet potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until fennel begins to soften, 3 to 4 minutes.
Step 4
Add cauliflower, serrano, and turmeric; toss to coat. Reduce heat to medium, add water, and cook, covered, until cauliflower is just tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
Step 5
Uncover and stir in garam masala, 1/2 cup cashews, 1/4 cup cilantro, and 1/4 cup fennel fronds; cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
Step 6
Top with remaining 1/2 cup cashews, 1/4 cup cilantro, and 1/4 cup fennel fronds.
