Tofu & Mushroom Thai Green Curry (Vegan

 

Thai Green Curry is a classic and the Internet is full of hundreds of variations. The recipe I am sharing today is a family favorite. I have myself tried Green Curry with lots of different vegetables but this combination of Tofu and Mushrooms is still the most preferred. The melt-in-your-mouth pieces of tofu along with juicy bites of button mushrooms is absolutely perfect along with the aromatic spicy green curry base.

Note:

I like to use coconut oil because I feel it makes the curry more fragrant along with the coconut milk in it. Use any oil of your choice.

Increase or decrease the amount of curry paste in the recipe depending on how strong you like it.

A few fresh green/red chilies added to the curry will add more heat to it. Skip it if you want.

You can use many other vegetables in the place of tofu and mushrooms. Some of the more traditional options would be small green Thai eggplants, bamboo shoots, long beans and turkey berries.

Heat the oil in a deep pot. Add the crushed garlic and fry till it turns light golden. Now add the curry paste. Fry it in low flame till the raw smell disappears.

Season the curry with salt, sugar and a bit of soy sauce. Let it simmer for a couple of minutes and add the tofu. Let the curry cook for a few minutes. Taste it and adjust the flavours according to your taste. Add some more sliced green chilies if needed. Let the curry simmer till the mushrooms are completely cooked. Make sure not to boil the curry. Turn off the heat and throw in the fresh basil leaves.

Serve over hot rice or noodles.
