Thai Tofu Green Curry

Looking for a simple thai style green curry with tofu, u should definitely try this tofu green curry which needs very less time to cook and really tickle ur palettes...i prepared this tofu green curry with store bought green curry paste which made this dish so simple and yummy, u can also prepare the green curry paste at home by mincing the ingredients and stirring them together..Simple curry with panfried tofu pieces, with red and green bell peppers, galangal , kaffir lime leaves simmer with coconut milk...This delicious green curry tastes really delicious with hot thai jasmine rice and this curry is vegan since i used tofu,coconut milk and vegetarian stock to make this curry, while the original recipe goes for chicken stock and chicken pieces.This is my one more entry to Its Vegan World-Thai guest hosted by Priya of Akshayapaatram, event by Vaishali...


1cup Tofu pieces
1cup Red n Green bell peppers
1tsp Soyasauce
1tbsp Green curry paste
1/4cup Vegetable stock
1/2cup Coconut milk
2nos Kaffir lime leaves
1no Galangal(medium size piece)
3nos Green onions
1no Red thai chilli
3nos Garlic cloves
Sesame oil
Sesame seeds for garnishing
Sugar

Pound together the green onions, thai red chilli and garlic cloves into a coarse paste.. heat a pan and drizzle few drops of sesame oil, fry the tofu pieces until they get slightly brown , keep aside...Heat a tbsp of sesame oil in the same pan and add the coarse paste of onion-chilli, fry until for few minutes, add the vegetable stock, galangal piece, kaffir lime leaves, green curry paste, soya sauce, sugar and bring them to boil..keep in simmer..

Now add the pan fried tofu pieces, green and red bell pepper pieces to the simmering vegetable broth,cook for 5 minutes and finally add the coconut milk to the curry and cook for few minutes..garnish with sesame seeds.

Serve hot with hot steaming jasmine rice!
