I have been making this from a recipe book for a while and this is so much easier! Just as delicious too. I had to make my own curry powder using 2 tsp. ground coriander, 1 tsp. ground cumin, 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, 1/4 tsp. turmeric, 1/4 tsp. ground ginger. Thanks for sharing.

VERRY Dry . Like chewing a curried burlap sack . I saved it by adding a cup of vegetable broth.

I skipped the whole long tofu draining and freezing step and it still came out great. I'll make it again.

Nummy Nummy In My Tummy, as my 10-year-old says! I did use the recommended 1c. vegetable broth (from cube); I mixed the curry powder and 1 tsp ground cayenne (our family loves spicy food!) into the broth, along with two T whole-wheat flour to help thicken it back up a smidge; might should have used cornstarch instead. Stirred the broth in with the tomatoes (I used canned diced ... much easier). Served over steamed basmati rice with naan (gotta have those carbs). Was even better next day, reheated ... flavors merged nicely. Thanks very much!!!!!

This is a quick and easy recipe for tofu. My husband and I really enjoy it. I used minced ginger from a jar and omitted the jalapeno pepper. I didn't have fresh tomatoes so I used a whole can of diced tomatoes. I can see why other reviewers would have found it dry without the extra liquid. Great over rice, and even better the next day for lunch!

This recipie has great flavour, I think even people who don't care for tofu would love it! I served it over rice, but I think it would be great with naan as well.

This dish is excellent! My husband thought it was chicken until I told him it was tofu. I am new to tofu. I love indian food, so if you love the curry taste, you'll love this recipe.

Not great, but not horrid. We served with a side of rice, and in the end mixed them together for a bit more texture- then it was okay.
