If you like tofu and peanuts, why not have both in a curry? Peanut sauce is a popular Asian flavor, and it can make bland food such as tofu taste delicious. The best thing is, this recipe only needs peanut butter as a special ingredient for the peanut sauce.
There is another unique ingredient in this recipe, maple syrup. That is the only thing I will have to go out and buy if I am trying this recipe. Or, maybe I can use something like brown sugar or jaggery.
The process is super simple. Sauté chopped onion and garlic for a couple of minutes. Then add soy sauce, tomato ketchup, peanut butter, a sweetener, and fry everything together for another minute. Pour in some vegetable stock, and bring the gravy to a boil. Finally, the firm diced tofu and Sriracha sauce go in for the spiciness. Keep the curry on the stove until the sauce thickens, and that is it. Done.
You can enjoy this hot and spicy tofu peanut curry with plain steamed rice. But remember to adjust the spiciness by using more or less Sriracha sauce, depending on how spicy you want the curry to be.
