    Curried Tofu

  • 1 block of medium firm tofu (450 gr)
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 1 inch knob of ginger
  • 1 400 ml can coconut milk
  • 1-2 tbls of good Madras curry powder
  • 1 Habanero seeded, stemmed and minced
  • First weight the tofu for about half an hour to remove excess water, and then cut it into 1" squares(approx)and let these sit and dry some more while you finely chop the onion...use a big onion. Mince the garlics, and finely chop the ginger, and the hab(use mittens, or be prepared to face the consequence) In a wok, quickly stir fry the tofu pieces,using peanut oil, in batches over high heat, until it is all a little browned, then set it aside to get rid of the excess oil and any more moisture. In a pan or pot, stainless is good, place about 2 tbls of peanut oil on low heat and dump in the onion, garlic, ginger, and minced hab. Let this simmer over low to medium heat, and add the curry powder, and salt to taste. Cover this and let it go for awhile on LOW...do not let it burn. The secret to a good curry, either vegetable or animal, is long slow cooking of the onion curry mixture. Now you can stir in the reserved tofu, raise the heat to medium high and add the can of coconut milk. Do not cover, but let this simmer until reduced quite a bit...taste for seasoning, add a little sugar and more salt to taste.
    Serve this with Thai rice, or any good long grain rice.Great veggie food! Cheers, Doug in BC
