Preparing tofu curry

  1. To make curry tofu, you must first cut the shallot into very thin slices, and then proceed to cut the tofu into cubes of about 1 centimeter on each side.
  2. Pour a couple of tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil into a very large non-stick pan, turning the heat on medium.
  3. Brown the shallots, the whole garlic without the core and the piece of ginger root.
  4. As soon as the shallots are golden, remove the garlic and ginger and add the diced tofu.
  5. Let the tofu brown and pour in the curry, adding the coconut milk (or water).
  6. After about 10 minutes , season with salt and pepper and serve garnished with parsley, coriander or other fresh aromatic herbs to taste.

As mentioned previously, we recommend pairing it with basmati rice .

Variations of the vegan dish

For a stronger flavour, if you have time, you can marinate the diced tofu in advance in a mix of curry, powdered ginger, turmeric and other spices, creating a sort of dry marinade. If you prefer crunchier tofu, you can reduce the amount of coconut milk and let the liquid dry completely.
