Vegan Jamaican Curry Tofu

So I got so many scotch bonnet peppers, some I pickled it (recipe is coming soon), some I gave away and kept few to make some Jamaican curry. this is by far very simple but flavorful vegan curry with tofu but you can make it with chicken too. 

Curry is very famous in Jamaica since it has a very large populations from Indian descent and that influence you can see in their food too. This dish is a classic combination of Indian and Jamaican spices and very hearty. There is no fancy ingredients , just simple few over the pantry spices and you are done. 

I have used tofu but you can use paneer, potatoes, chicken or any thing. 



Ingredients :

1 block of firm tofu drained
2 tbsp. Curry powder
1 Carrot chopped
1 onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 tsp fresh thyme
1 whole scotch bonnet pepper
1/2 tsp allspice ground or crushed
Salt and pepper as per taste
2 tbsp. oil
1 cup water

Method :

Cut drained tofu in to small cubes and season with curry powder, garlic and salt and pepper

Heat oil in a pan, add tofu and cook until browned on all sides. Don't burn the curry otherwise it will be bitter

Add remaining ingredients with water and put the whole scotch bonnet pepper on top.

Cover the pan and reduce heat and cook it for 15 minutes. 

Remove from heat and carefully remove pepper. You don't want to pierce it otherwise whole dish will be ruined by the spice of that pepper. 

Serve with white, brown, jasmine rice.

Tariwala Poha Nagpur Style

I have never eaten this kind of poha but the idea of making it with spicy black chana is tempted. Before I never put potatoes in my poha , always had it with black beans so with protein is not a big deal for me. 

For this dish make poha the way we always do and make black chana with gravy and do extra tadka with more chilies with oil to give that tari effect. 

I had to feed the kids so I didn't  make very spicy but if you have no limitation go ahead and make it zanzant spicy.


Ingredients for Poha 





Ingredients for Brown chana



To assemble it 

Take poha in a bowl, add black chana and the gravy on top of it, sprinkle with sev, pomegranate pearls,  chopped chilies, chopped cilantro leaves and enjoy it with the cup of tea or have it for light lunch too.
