Curries love tofu, especially when the tofu is soft and springy – it can take on new flavours more quickly and easily, adding a creamy subtle sweetness to the dish. This toasted peanut recipe is really quick to pull together and a great base for adding other vegetables and proteins too.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 150g peanuts
  • 25g soft brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander (cilantro)
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 1/2tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 large tomato, roughly chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped or grated
  • 150ml vegetable or sunflower oil, plus 1 tbsp
  • 2 handfuls of coriander (cilantro), finely chopped, plus extra, to serve 500 g soft tofu, drained for 20 minutes
  • 200ml water
  • Rice or naan bread, to serve

Method

  1. Toast the peanuts in a pan for 3–4 minutes, then blend into a fine powder. Tip into a large bowl.
  2. Mix in the sugar, spices, tomato, onion and garlic, then pour over the oil, stirring to make a curry sauce. Finally, mix in the chopped coriander.
  3. Chop the tofu into chunks. Heat the 1 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan and fry the tofu, turning, until golden brown on all sides.
  4. Slowly heat the curry sauce in a saucepan, adding the measured water.
  5. Add the tofu to the curry sauce and simmer for a further 10 minutes. Serve with a final scattering of coriander and a generous helping of rice or naan bread.
