This is a fnatastic recipe!! My family loves it and my husband really enjoys cooking it. We stick to the recipe then let it simmer for about 30 minutes then add more spices to taste. (Always more curry) It makes a lot but saves and reheats really well! It has become a staple in our house.
I make this all the time but my recipe is a bit different measurement wise. First do NOT use all those tomatoes! It will ruin the curry. Cut it down to about 1 and 1/2 cups of the tomatoe sauce and I like to put the tomatoes and onions in the food processor. I use about 3/4 a cup of coconut milk unsweetened. And add flaked unsweetened coconut for extra flavor. ALSO since my husband is Indian I use paneer. AWESOME if you can find it. Some Indian (Patel Bros) groceries keep it in their frozen food section. You can also find ready made naan chapathi and paratha that are authentic and taste homemade. But you don t have to do all that work. ALSO veggies I cut down to 1 to 1 1/2 cup total.
I have this simmering on the stove right now; it smells so good and the samples are delightful! I love the spices. I reduced the tomato sauce to 1 3/4 cup (15 oz) and it seems like plenty... I wouldn't add any more than that. I added one fresh chopped tomato and I think cauliflower would be a nice addition. I'll be serving this with basmati rice. Next time I'll add the peas just before serving... they seemed over-cooked after simmering for a half hour. Also this was fairly greasy I will use lite coconut milk next time. A bit of cinnamon might be a nice addition. Update: Much improved with lite coconut milk - the spices are more pronounced. Also I added the cumin curry and ginger while the onions and tofu were frying - it made the tofu tastier. I did add a bit more red pepper paste. Love it! This is going into regular rotation.
My husband's first intro to indian cusine and he LOVED it!! Top notch USed half the amount of tomatoe suace due to pan size and it was perfect. Served with Jasmine rice and Naan finished with Kalfi (all from this site) and gingerbread. A real winner
Made some of the same revisions as other reviewers---most important one is cutting down the tomato sauce. I used 4 cups and could've used less. (I like the idea of using diced tomatoes instead.) Also could've had a bit more tofu. Will make this again and continue to play with it.
A vegetarian guest very well acquainted with Indian food gave this an 8 or 9 out of 10 (10 being the best Indian food he's ever had). That said here are my modifications: 2 Tblspn cumin 2 tsp curry 2 tsp ginger 2 tsp salt 1/4 red cayenne pepper one large can diced petite tomatoes two heaping spoons of tomato sauce; served with brown rice on the side. I've never had so many compliments...
Very good. I halved the recipe but used a full block of tofu and a whole can of coconut milk. Also only used about 1 c. of crushed tomatoes. I didn't have pepper paste so I used 1 1/2 tbs. sriracha (rooster sauce). For variety I put in a half can of sliced potatoes and a cup of "asian stir fry" frozen vegetables. I served it over minute brown rice (though basmati or jasmine would have been better) with a wedge of lemon and a dollop of plain yogurt. Can't wait for the leftovers!
A decent start. Based on personal preference I made the following changes: I drained the tofu cooked it in roasted peanut oil and added the garlic & onion during the last few minutes. I cut the cumin back to 2 tsp's and next time I will omit it all together - it really didn't belong. I increased the curry to one tablespoon and also added a tablespoon of Garam Masala. I used a can of tomato sauce and also a can of fire roasted tomato's instead of all of the tomato sauce this calls for. Last but not least I put the peas in frozen and they were fine by the time this simmered for a bit.

I followed the recipe exactly. The tomato flavor was over-powering. I won't be making this again.
