Share this Article

  • To begin making the Vegetarian Thai Green Curry With Tofu Cut all vegetables as specified in the ingredients list. except onions.

  • Steam all the other vegetables with a light salt. I usually pop in all the vegetables in a microwaveable bowl and microwave them for 2 to 3 minutes until they are a little soft tossing them midway to evenly cook them. 

  • You can also boil these in hot water for about 5 minutes with a little salt. Take care to not overcook the vegetables as it will be nice to have a little crunch to the vegetables.

  • Once done remove and drain out any excess water and save the water. 

  • In a pan add a teaspoon of oil and pan fry the cut tofu pieces until they are slightly brown. Keep aside. 

  • Heat a large wok, add 3 tablespoons of cooking oil and sauté the onions till they are light brown.

  • Now add 3 tablespoons of the Thai green curry paste and cook for about 2-3 minutes till the paste gets cooked and the aromas are released.

  • Next add the 800 ml of coconut milk, soy sauce and brown sugar (or jaggery).

  • Let the entire sauce / gravy come to a boil. Taste the sauce. It should be spicy (from the Thai green curry paste), sweet (Coconut milk and brown sugar) and have the sufficient amount of salt (soy sauce and salt).

  • Feel free to add more of an ingredient to get it to your taste.

  • Add the pre cooked vegetables and the fried tofu to the sauce. 

  • Garnish with chopped cilantro. It will look gorgeous! You can also optionally sprinkle some roasted peanuts (roasted, deskinned and crushed) to get a crunchy texture to the food.

  • Serve Vegetarian Thai Green Curry With Tofu along with Steamed Rice for a perfect weeknight dinner and a Thai Green Papaya Salad Recipe by the side.
