Sauce

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 garlic clove, chopped

  • 2 tsp (10 ml) fresh ginger, chopped

  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

Preparation

Sauce

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, soften the onion, garlic, ginger and pepper flakes in the butter. Stir in the spices and continue cooking for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, water and tomato paste. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Crush the mixture using a potato masher. Add the cream and cook for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm.

Tofu

  1. Meanwhile, in a pot of salted boiling water, cook the tofu for 5 minutes (see note). Drain on paper towels.

  2. In a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, brown the tofu in the butter.

  3. Add the sauce and simmer for 3 minutes. If prepared in advance, reheat the tofu and sauce over medium heat. Add water, if needed. Sprinkle with the cilantro. Serve with vegetables, basmati rice or naan bread.
