Expert Tips

  • When chopping your vegetables, dice them in a uniform manner so they cook consistently.
  • Depending on the brand, ¼ cup of red curry paste will make a mild curry. You can always add more curry paste after the curry has cooked if you prefer a spicier dish.
  • This tofu curry also serves well with flatbread rather than basmati rice.
