Getting Started on Jeena's Vegetarian Tofu Curry Recipe..

Place your carrots, turnips and peas into a pan and simmer until they soften then turn off the heat and drain, leave to the side until later. Take a small pan and roast gently your cumin seeds, green cardamons, brown cardamon and clove until they start to smell toasted, take them straight off the heat and grind into a powder(this will only take a minute or two).

Fry your ginger mixture in a large pan for a few minutes, stir.

Add your chilli flakes and fennel stir well.

Keep stiring add your leeks, then turmeric then the toasted spices that you ground earlier.

Drizzle some oil and add a little water ( go easy on the water you don not want a stew). Add your cooked vegetables keep cooking and stiring then add your dried methi leaves and coriander powder.

Pour in approx 1/4 cup of creamed tomatoes, stir well.

While your vegetarian tofu curry sauce cooks. In a separate pan fry your onions and tofu, cook until they are golden.

Add a large pinch of dried coriander leaves to your curry, stir well.

Now the tofu and onions should be ready.

Add the garam masala to your curry, stir well.

Add your tofu and onions into your curry pan, stir well. Cook for a few minutes.

Your Vegetarian Tofu Curry is ready to eat. Serve as it is with rice or bread of your choice.

Wonderful pictures Jeena, Ur pictures make me drool over everytime :-)
I love paneer, and i also like tofu, not as much as paneer though. Tofu is bland like said earlier, but a healthier choice. I'm gonna try this flavourful recipe as it is with tofu sometime. Thnx for sharing dear.
