Ingredients:

300 g tofu

1 cup frozen petits pois

1 can tomatoes

1 large onion, finely chopped

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

5 cm piece ginger, peeled, finely chopped (you should have 2-3 tablespoons of it)

 v 004c

 

Instructions:

Start by preparing the tofu. Drain it well, wrap in paper towel and squeeze gently to remove any excess water (you may have to use several paper towel sheets). Cube the tofu and season to taste. Heat up 2 tablespoons of oil and fry the tofu for a couple of minutes on a medium heat, carefully turning with a spatula, until it’s lightly browned. Set aside.

Heat up 3 tablespoons of oil, add the bay leaf, garlic, ginger and onion and fry on a medium heat for a minute stirring often. Add the garam masala, cumin and turmeric and continue frying for another minute or so stirring often.

v 004a

Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from the heat, discard the bay leaf and puree the sauce. Add the coconut milk (reheat the sauce if you have to at this point then take off the heat), coriander, tofu and petits pois. Adjust the seasoning if necessary and serve!
