Curry Vegetables and Tofu

Posted in Home Made Cooking

How many times did I want to make some vegetarian curry for my dear husband and did not have coconut milk? Countless times! Until I decided that this is it, there has to be a way to make yummy curry without having to run to the store and buy coconut milk. So there you have it, my non Asian version of curry vegetables and tofu, kind of a cheat :). I served it on a bed of Jasmine rice and it tastes wonderful. Sometimes the traditional version is not the only one that’s right.
