Curry to Burn Your Stomach!

Nny likes spicy foods. I like spicy foods. Although I prefer to enjoy my food with spice whereas for some reason Nny likes it so spicy that his face turns red, he’s breathing in and out through his mouth and he clears his throat every few minutes. Heh. So he asks me to make a tofu curry (he eats vegetarian food) and I gladly agree. Note you don’t have to add exactly what I added, most of the vegetables are optional you can add whatever you like to the curry! the ingredients in bold are what I think absolutely needed. 🙂

Tofu Curry

2 tsps of  olive oil

3 cloves of minced garlic

2 jalapenos (chopped)

4 potatoes (chopped, boiled, peeled)

8 slices of taro root

two handfuls of mushrooms (you can choose which kind)

1 can of coconut milk

Half a jar of chili paste (can be reduced if you don’t want it too spicy)

A dozen tofu cubes (firm tofu)

2 tsps of curry (madras)

3-4 tsps of chili powder (no need to add if you don’t want it too spicy)

salt and pepper to taste

1. Put oil in pot wait until it gets hot and toast garlic and jalapenos. When toasted put in potatoes, and all the rest of the vegetables and stir for a few minutes. It’s a good idea to lower your heat, you don’t want the ingredients to get stuck on the bottom of the pot.

2. Add in the chili paste and stir until your ingredients and the paste are blended well together.

3. Add the tofu squares and stir carefully so you won’t break them.

4. Then add in coconut milk and stir. Add your spices and salt and pepper. Stir some more. Wait until it boils (cover the pot).

5. Simmer some more, lower the heat and let it cook for about 20 minutes.

6. Stir once in a while so your food won’t get stuck on the bottom.

7. It’s ready to serve! enjoy!

Nny enjoyed his a lot. I haven’t tasted it because I know it’s probably extremely spicy and my stomach would burn as a result.
