Curry Tofu Cubes

This is another way to cook tofu or beancurd. If you consume garlic or shallot, you can get these “heat-up” curry tofu cubes from the supermarket. Otherwise, you can whip it up, it is rather simple. Substitute curry leaves with lemongrass, if desired or totally omit them if you could not get these herbs.

Preparation: 5 mins, Cooking time: 10 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)

° 1 firm tofu/beancurd (225g), pat dry, cubes and deep-fried/pan-fried.
° 1 sprig curry leaves
° 100ml-125ml water
° 100ml-125ml coconut milk
° 1 tablespoon curry powder
° 1 tablespoon olive oil
° salt and sugar, to taste


1. Mix the curry powder and chilli powder with a tad of water to form curry paste and set aside.
2. Heat oil in a pot or wok, fry the curry leaves for ½ minutes. Add in the curry paste and fry over medium heat until fragrant.
3. Throw in the tofu, water, coconut milk and bring to a boil. Season to taste with salt and sugar.
4. Simmer for 5-8 minutes or until the gravy is slightly dry.
5. Serve hot with rice.
