Hot Tofu Curry (Vegan)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by DitaVT

This curry has a nice thick sauce, and using red and green peppers gives it extra color. It can be served with either wholemeal chapatis or plain boiled rice. Adapted from a recipe for chicken in the "Hot & Spicy Kitchen Handbook."

Tasty dish, spices are nice altho I did cut back the "heat" quite a bit. This was certainly an easy dish to prepare, I found it really benefited from being allowed to simmer for an extra 30 minutes or so. I think next time I'd brown up the tofu first, or maybe use some pre-marinated. thanks DitaVT!
