  • 1 Thai chile pepper

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric

  • ½ teaspoon red chili powder

  • 1 medium onion, cubed

  • 1 (8 ounce) package fresh mushrooms, quartered

  • 1 (8 ounce) can baby corn, drained

  • 1 medium zucchini, cubed

  • 1 medium green bell pepper, diced

  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk

  • ½ teaspoon dried basil

  • salt to taste

  • olive oil cooking spray

  • 1 clove garlic, grated

  • 1 (12 ounce) package extra-firm tofu, cubed


  1. Split chile pepper into 4 sections lengthwise, keeping it joined at the stem; set aside.

  2. Heat oil in heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat. Add ginger, turmeric, and chili powder; cook for 30 seconds. Add onion and chile pepper; cook until onion is translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add mushrooms, baby corn, zucchini, and bell pepper; cook and stir until all veggies are coated with turmeric mixture, 3 to 4 minutes.

  3. Stir in coconut milk, basil, and salt; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Cook until vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes. Turn off heat.

  4. Coat a separate pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook and stir until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add tofu and pan-fry both sides until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer to the curry mixture and bring to a boil; turn off heat and serve.

Cook's Note:

For a spicy version, add some crushed red chiles just before serving. For a lighter version, use 1/2 the can of coconut milk and add about 1 cup water.
