This was a hit. I was worried it would be too much tofu but it was so flavorful and yummy, my husband and I both loved it. Good for lunch the next day too! I'll make it again maybe with some extra veg added.


Toss the tofu with paprika, turmeric, salt and pepper.

Pan fry the tofu until golden and crispy on all sides.

Cook the onion, garlic, ginger and tomato for 4-6 minutes.

Add the spices and cook for 1 more minute.

Add the coconut milk, water or broth and sugar and bring to a simmer.

Add the tofu and cook for 6-8 minutes until thickened.
