Made this for a meat-eating friend tonight and she loved it!<br><br>
1 block firm tofu<br>
1 tomato<br>
2 red bell peppers<br>
1 tbsp coriander<br>
1 tsp tumeric<br>
1 tsp cinnamon<br>
1 tsp cumin<br>
1 tsp chili powder<br>
1 tsp soy sauce<br>
1 tsp nutmeg<br>
1 tsp ground cloves (I couldn't find ground cloves, only full cloves so chopped them finely<br>
1 tsp ginger powder<br>
2 cans coconut milk ( I used light coconut milk and added corn flour for thickness)<br>
1 large onion<br>
1 clove garlic<br><br>
Chop the onion finely, and fry until translucent. Add the garlic, ginger/ginger powder and soy sauce and cook for a further 2 minutes.<br><br>
Add the red pepper, tomato, tofu and half of the spices and continue for 2 minutes.<br><br>
Add the coconut milk and simmer for about 40 minutes, adding the rest of the spices throughout the 40 minutes. The sauce should gradually reduce and become relatively thick.<br><br>
Serve with rice of your choice (I use white rice, as I seemingly CAN NOT cook wholemeal <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">)

I want to try to make this, too. I wonder if...I could convert it to work in a crock pot. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sneaky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":shifty:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/evil.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":evil:">

Canned coconut milk is ususally 15 oz or so, and found in the Asian department of the larger grocery stores.

Ah we're metric here.. I had no problems finding the canned stuff but she couldn't find it and the staff didn't seem to know. The powder worked out well actually. We found the dish was lacking heat though next time we'll add some chilis or something maybe

Made this last night, but I cheat with a pre-mixed curry paste from the Thai grocery. Left out the tomato and used a spoon of paste instead, threw in some frozen green beans and carrots.

oh yeah i forgot to mention we added broccoli to ours. i love broccoli in curry. BUT i recommend not putting it in til about halfway through simmering time. we put it in too soon and it was overcooked.<br><br>
i made curry a couple night ago from a jar and we used frozen broccoli instead of fresh and didn't have that problem, so maybe frozen is the way to go
