Tofu Korma

Yield: 4-6 Servings          Difficulty: Average

Chef’s Notes: Usually korma is made with yogurt, but somehow I want to make it dairy-free.  The only way to do that is to use coconut milk.  I think this is much better because it adds more dimension to the taste and texture too, without added cholesterol.


2 tbsp. Canola Oil

1 tbsp. Ginger, Chopped

1/2 cup Onions, Diced

1 tbsp. Garlic, Chopped

1 tsp. Curry Powder

1 tsp. Garam Masala

2 cups Red Potatoes, Peeled and Cubed

2 cups Cauliflower, flowerettes

2 cups Green Beans, Stemmed and Cut

1/2 cup Carrots, Peeled and Cubed

2 cups Tofu, Baked and Marinated, Cubed (Extra Firm)

2 cups Tomato Puree

1/2 cup Coconut Milk

1/2 cup Water

2 tbsp. Cashew Butter

Sea Salt to Taste

Chili Flakes to Taste

1/2 cup Cashew, Chopped
