How to make Thai Yellow Curry with Vegetables, Tofu and Cashewnuts

  1. Take 2 cups of water in a broad vessel. Cover and bring it to boil over a high heat. Add in the beans, carrots, baby corn and keep it covered for 4 minutes. Then drain the water completely and keep it aside.
  2. Press the tofu firmly for 10 minutes. Then cut into cubes and fry until brown and crisp on all sides. Also fry the whole cashew nuts with a drop of coconut oil till they are golden brown.
  3. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat and add in the yellow curry paste. Stir it continuously for 2 minutes.
  4. Then add in the chopped mushrooms, capsicum and blanched vegetables. Stir it to combine well with the curry paste.
  5. Add 1/4 cup of coconut milk and 1 cup of water. Cover the pan and cook until the veggies are cooked well.
  6. Now add the required salt, sugar, soy sauce and the remaining coconut milk. Keep the curry in a low flame and cook for 5 more minutes.
  7. At this stage, taste and adjust the flavour of the curry as needed. I added some pepper powder and lemon juice.
  8. Once the curry is well cooked and the veggies are softened, add in the roasted cashewnuts, chopped basil leaves and fried tofu and serve it over the steamed jasmine rice or basmati rice.

My Tip:

For the best Thai curries always use fresh vegetables, plenty of aromatics like ginger, garlic, onions and lemon grass and thick coconut milk for richness and also fresh lime leaves. You can also add blanched broccoli florets, zucchini and pineapple chunks.
