Tofu Curry Recipe

Perfect for a quick and easy Saturday night fake-away. It uses just one pot, so saves on washing up too.

If you prefer you can substitute the tofu for king prawns, which I think also tastes delicious.

Adjust the seasoning to suit your tastes and requirements. As the recipe stands, I think it has a good ‘heat’ my husband thinks it could go hotter. If you like it mild or you are serving to children who might not appreciate the kick, reduce the cayenne pepper or remove completely.

Tofu block (1 use Tofoo) 280g
Rapeseed oil – 2  tablespoons

Ground Cumin –  2 teaspoons

Water – 100 ml


1. Drain and chop the tofu into bite-size cubes. Pat dry with kitchen paper, then place in a bowl with the
cornflour and seasoning and toss to coat.

each side until it starts to go golden. Then put aside for later.

Putting a lid on can help with this. This will take around 5 minutes or so.
4. Add the garlic and all of the spices. Mix well to combine and cook for about another minute.
5. Add the chopped tomatoes and water, season with a little salt and pepper. Bring to the boil and simmer with
the lid on for 30 mins. Add a splash more water if it starts to look too thick.
6. Stir through your spinach and add your cooked tofu (you could substitute for king prawns and add here if you
7. When the spinach is wilted and tofu warmed through, serve.

Serve with rice, sides of your choice (personally, I love a garlic naan) and maybe a cheeky vino.
