  • Heat oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add tofu and saute, stirring occasionally, until nicely colored on all sides and moisture has cooked off, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

  • Meanwhile, combine coconut milk, 1/2 cup water, and curry paste in a large wok or pan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Add onion; boil for 3 minutes.

  • Add potatoes, reduce heat to medium, and cook until potatoes are nearly cooked, about 8 minutes. Add zucchini and bell peppers; simmer for 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup more water if curry is too thick.

  • Cut bamboo shoots in half and discard any tough ends. Add to the curry with the basil. Add brown sugar and lime juice; taste and adjust seasonings. Stir in tofu.

Cook's Note:

You can use purchased cooked tofu, if desired.
