BM #97 Week 2 Day 3 -

For the last day in this series, here is a delightful Tofu curry with mild spices bringing out Tofu as the star in the curry.

The other day, when we had this curry at a friend's place, we instantly fell in love with the simple flavors with no overpowering masala. After finding out the secret behind the subtle flavors, I decided to make it at home and found that we loved it just the same.

Recipe Source Friend's Mom
Ingredients - 

Tofu cubed 14 oz block
Mixed Vegetables  1 cup (I used Carrots and Peas)
Onion finely chopped 1/2 cup (1 medium onion)
Tomato finely chopped 1/2 cup (1 medium tomato)
Dhania Jeera Powder 1 tsp
Salt, Turmeric, Red Chili Powder as needed
To Grind (Cashews handful, Almonds 5-6)
Seasoning (Coconut Oil 1 Tbsp + more for sauteing Tofu, Cumin Seeds 1 tsp)

Method Of Preparation -

Drain the tofu and wrap the block in a thick kitchen towel and place a weight so the water is drained well. (I rarely do the step as it increases the prep time :))

Cube the Tofu into bite size pieces. 

In a heavy bottomed pan, heat coconut oil and saute the cubed Tofu until all the cubes are evenly brown. Set aside.

In the same heated heavy bottomed pan, add oil and cumin seeds.

After the cumin seeds crackle, add onions and saute until they are light golden brown.

Add in tomatoes and the vegetables. Sprinkle, turmeric and dhania jeera powder. Add about 1/4 cup of water, cover and let the vegetables cook through.

Meanwhile blend the cashews and almonds into a fine paste adding as much water as needed.

After the vegetables are cooked well, add in the sauteed tofu, cashew paste and salt.

Mix well and let the curry simmer. Add more water to adjust the consistency. Cover and remove from heat after a couple of minutes.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with rice or roti.


Preparation Time 25 minutes
Serves 3-4

  6. I have two tubs of tofu to be used up. I will try this recipe for sure.

  7. This would make a perfect side for rotis. The addition of nuts must give the curry an amazing richness.

  8. Tofu is an excellent substitute of paneer and any dish with it should taste equally good . The simple recipe sounds great .
