I have been making this from a recipe book for a while and this is so much easier! Just as delicious too. I had to make my own curry powder using 2 tsp. ground coriander 1 tsp. ground cumin 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper 1/4 tsp. turmeric 1/4 tsp. ground ginger. Thanks for sharing. Read More

VERRY Dry. Like chewing a curried burlap sack. I saved it by adding a cup of vegetable broth. Read More

I skipped the whole long tofu draining and freezing step and it still came out great. I'll make it again. Read More

Nummy Nummy In My Tummy as my 10-year-old says! I did use the recommended 1c. vegetable broth (from cube); I mixed the curry powder and 1 tsp ground cayenne (our family loves spicy food!) into the broth along with two T whole-wheat flour to help thicken it back up a smidge; might should have used cornstarch instead. Stirred the broth in with the tomatoes (I used canned diced... much easier). Served over steamed basmati rice with naan (gotta have those carbs). Was even better next day reheated... flavors merged nicely. Thanks very much!!!!! Read More

This is a quick and easy recipe for tofu. My husband and I really enjoy it. I used minced ginger from a jar and omitted the jalapeno pepper. I didn't have fresh tomatoes so I used a whole can of diced tomatoes. I can see why other reviewers would have found it dry without the extra liquid. Great over rice and even better the next day for lunch! Read More

This is a wonderful recipe. Some additions and changes that I've made: first I only had completely pulverized tomatoes so I used them--they work great. My second time making this recipe I added grated zucchini and carrot plus chopped red peppers to the onion phase of cooking. The taste was excellent and my boy friend who's just starting to eat healthy didn't even know he was eating the extra veggie content! Read More

I have made this recipe three times in two months and it is ALWAYS a hit. It is great when made exactly from this recipe but I also make a few changes. First I tend to add more of the spices because I like things with a ton of bite. Second it is even better with some cauliflower. Yum! The cauliflower absorbs the spices wonderfully. I've never had this come out dry and the leftovers taste great! Read More
