How to make Lemongrass Tofu and Vegetable Curry Recipe
To begin making the Lemongrass Tofu and Vegetable Curry Recipe we have to get a set of ingredients ready. Keep the vegetables cut and ready.
Make the Lemon Grass Curry Paste, by blending all the curry paste ingredients into a smooth paste adding very little water. Keep this aside.
Next make the homemade tomato puree. Keep this aside. I most often make a batch of it and refrigerate it, so when I have to make recipes like this, it comes in handy.
Whisk the coconut milk, tomato puree, the lemon grass curry paste, salt, turmeric powder and curry powder until well combined. Check the salt and spice levels and adjust it to suit your taste. Add in the tofu cubes and keep this aside.
Now we are ready to bring out ingredients together for the Lemongrass Tofu and Vegetable Curry Recipe.
Heat a teaspoon of oil in a large wok; add in all the vegetables together, sprinkle some salt and stir fry on high heat until the vegetables are lightly cooked and steamed. Once the vegetables are cooked, pour in the Lemon grass curry mixture along with the tofu and stir to combine.
Turn the heat to medium high and bring the curry to a boil. After a minute of boiling, turn off the heat and transfer the curry to a serving bowl.
Serve the Tofu and Vegetable Curry along with brown rice or even Thai Jasmine Sticky Rice Recipe, Papaya Orange Pomegranate Salad Recipe With Roasted Peanuts and Coconut Tapioca Pudding Recipe with Spicy Strawberry Sauce for as healthy wholesome weeknight dinner.
