  • Curry Tofu

    Tofu, Cashew & Potato Curry

    This is another ‘Tofu Curry’ that I cooked on a meat-free Monday. As some people find Tofu tastes ‘yucky’ even in such a strong curry flavour (and I hardly understand that), I added Cashews. The creamy nutty Cashews and Tofu go very well together. Use Indian Curry seasoning or Asian Curry seasoning. Both work well …

    ‘Agedashi Tofu’, a very popular Japanese Tofu dish, can be enjoyed with a sauce of any flavours. This time I tried a spicy garlic sauce.

    I want to suggest this cream alternative to those with lactose intolerance. Ingredient is just Silken Tofu, that is the softest and very smooth type Tofu made by coagulating thick soy milk without curdling it.
