Prep method


Prep Work for Straining the Tofu



Long Straining Option:

  1. Put the Tofu between a kitchen towel or paper towels and place the tofu between 2 plates

  2. Afterward, add a heavy object (5 pounds) on the plates and let sit for 30-45 minutes

  3. This will allow all the water to drain, which will then allow the Tofu to absorb all of the curry spices


Quick Straining Option:

  1. Strain the Tofu with a cheesecloth but cutting the tofu into cubes

  2. Next, wrap the tofu the cheesecloth and strain the water out with enough pressure to strain but not crumble the tofu



  1. Start by dicing the potatoes and tofu

  2. In the medium saucepan add the coconut milk, water, Turmeric, curry powder, and Chopped Tofu. Mix together completely

  3. Add the brown rice and potatoes (potatoes optional)

  4. Mix thoroughly and then let sit for 1 hour

  5. Let cook for  45-1 hour until all the water has been absorbed by moving the rice aside and checking for water on the bottom of the pan.

  6. Turn off the stove and let cool for a few moments and serve

  7. Storage: Store in refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 5 days. For longer storage, place the sealed container in the freezer
