Re: Tofu curry

What a good look! Even today I think I want to cook a curry differently than I have always eaten at the Indians, and tofu seems a good choice.
One question: do you really need coconut milk or can you skim milk, right? Can it be made with telemea instead of tofu?

Re: Tofu curry

yes, it can be made with lightly salted telemea, it looks like paneer. instead of coconut milk you can also use real milk and at the end you can even add 1 tablespoon of sour cream. coconut milk fits very well with the aroma of this spice, that's why I opted for it and it was really good for fasting.
