Thai Red Curry with Tofu and Vegetables

I just love Thai curries, Red, Green, Massaman or any other. Best thing about this is you don't have to go to restaurant to eat. You can make it at your home with out wasting much money and you can control the coconut milk portion and you have it again and again. To make the red curry from scratch its very time consuming and you have to get all the ingredients too. In half of that money you can buy readymade paste and froze leftover for later use. By all means you can make it from scratch , I have very nice store nearby who carries all South Asians stuff so I don't make it at home. You can increase / decrease paste as per your taste and vegetables too. Above all it requires no oil cause paste has everything so it's healthy too.

I am like my mom , loves spicy food so when ever she visits me here, I make sure to make all Thai curries for her and out of that this one is her favorite.


4 tbsp Red Curry paste or as per your taste
1/2 cup Coconut milk
1 block of Tofu cubes size
1 onion chopped in cubes
1 red capsicum chopped in cubes
few florets of Broccoli
1 chopped carrot
1 green Thai chili
1 small piece of ginger slices
few green beans
few  leaves chinese spinach
Juice of one lime /lemon


Heat a big non stick pan. Add tsp of oil in it and add tofu pieces in it.
Sprinkle black pepper powder and make tofu brown from all side. Keep it aside. You can skip this step but I like to do it cause it adds nice flavor in it.
In the same pan, add red curry paste and coconut milk. Mix it together.
Add all the vegetables and tofu and taste it. If you need more milk or paste add it and cook for 5 minutes till all the vegetables are cook but not mushy.
When it's done after a minute add lime juice in it and mix it.

At the time of serving , take bowl, add curry in it and serve it with Thai Stir fry rice.

Quick Recipe for Thai stri fry rice :
Cook Brown rice / White rice and keep it aside.
In a non stick add oil and add chopped thai green chilies, garlic, ginger in it. Saute for few seconds and add onion, carrot, soya beans, cabbage, pineapple  chunks and mix it.
Add soya sauce and curry powder in it and mix it.  you can add fry egg also.
