Yummy way to use up my TSP, Kree! I had a little trouble with some of the measurements. Figuring out what was 1 1/2 oz TVP was a bit difficult but I eventually decided on 1/2 cup dry. I omitted the oil and just used a hefty portion of cooking spray. I used garam masala and left out the water chestnuts as I did not have any. I used a granny smith apple and did use the coconut. While the clove flavor was nice, it was a little disconcerting to bite into a clove (and they are too small to find and pull out). I might leave those out or use some powdered cloves. Served over brown rice for an interesting meal.

Ingredients Nutrition

  3. Gradually sprinkle in the curry powder, stirring all the time until quite smooth.
  4. Cook for a few more minutes then add lemon juice and the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Stir in the TVP and simmer, covered, very gently for at least 20 minutes.
  6. Serve on a bed of rice.
