Directions

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the ginger, and cook until fragrant and beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Stir in the onions, cauliflower, and carrots. Cook and stir until the vegetables have softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the vindaloo powder and tomato paste until no lumps of tomato paste remain. Stir in the coconut milk, vegetable broth, and garbanzo beans. Gently fold in the tofu and mushrooms, and season to taste with salt. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally as the vindaloo cooks.

Wonderful. Didn't have vindaloo curry powder so I added 1 T curry powder, 2 tsp. cumin, 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes, 1 tsp tumeric and coriander. Very tasty and will serve 8 easily!

I doubled the amount of curry powder (standard for any Indian cooking) and it was still too bland. Might have been better with a sliced orange pepper or nuts, as others have suggested. Or maybe some (a lot) of garlic. Definitely needs salt. Will not make again without major revisions.

I love Indian food and this was so simple to do at home love the recipe, but my trick when cooking with tofu is to use a tofu press or pressure to get the moisture out first and it has way more flavor... I love it

Very good! I added a chopped Portuguese hot cherry pepper for heat, as my vindaloo curry powder is more aromatic than spicy, a couple cloves of garlic, some cilantro and I omitted the mushrooms. Very tasty and filling!

This was very easy to make. I used regular curry powder and I didn't have ginger root so I used ginger powder. I also didnt have veg. broth so I used chicken broth. Instead of tomato paste I used tomato sauce because it was all I had. I omitted the mushrooms. My husband loved it because we are normally meat eaters but are trying to eat healthier and this was perfect !! It was very filling and I cant wait to share the recipe with the rest of my family!!

I used a head of cauliflower, entire can of tomato paste along with regular curry powder (more than recommended), added some ginger powder and cashews. Easy and flavorful.

Great meal! I made it as directed, except that I used chicken broth in place of the vegetable broth. The recipe was easy and delicious, and spicy. The curry powder can be garam masala or regular curry powder. Definitely add some salt.
