Vegetarian tofu curry

Curry powder is one of favorite spice ingredients in my cooking, I use it so often for any curry dishes, meat,seafood or vegetarians and also to spice up and blend in humus.
This time I made vegetarian yellow curry with tofu mixed with vegetables.

Use any vegetables you like such potatoes, broccoli,cauliflower,snow peas,green beans etc.
To make it more easier you can buy fried tofu  is available in most Asian market, that way you don't have to cook the tofu,it's a lot faster to prepare I use them so often.

  1. Very nice Asian style curry Rid, those ingredients that I use so often like lemongrass, turmeric etc etc.

    Sure my kind of curry you bet.

  2. I've never cooked with tofu. It does look good.

  3. This looks really tasty! I've not made tofu with curry...but I heard it absorbs the flavors of the ingredients. If it tastes anything like it looks, it's bound to be amazing!

  4. I love yellow curry. This is a nice change from making it with chicken.

  5. Yum, you put all of my favorite ingredients into a dish: tofu, baby corn, and broccoli. The yellow curry sauce looks amazing!

  6. Wow this recipie is amazing and no one would never miss to add pepper masala to the preparation
