Sweet & Simple Pineapple Tofu Curry

Simple Pineapple Tofu Curry

If you are coconut lover like me, you have to try this dish to enjoy the tropical flavor along with coconut’s best friend, the pineapple. I know you are thinking of Pina Colada, but this dish is probably better tasting and definitely more filling than the drink. Today’s recipe is Simple Pineapple Tofu Curry

Simple Pineapple Tofu Curry

Here’s a secret: I would not post coconut based recipes such as this and Coconut Mango or Coconut Semolina if it weren’t for you. The feedback I received from them was very positive and I have received a lot of requests for recipes with coconuts. For today’s recipe with Pineapple and Tofu will deserve equal credits as coconuts do. I also added Cabbage and Zucchini to the mix to balance out the sweetness from Pineapples.

You can also choose any other vegetable option like Carrots or Broccoli. The important part is you have to check how sweet the pineapple is and adjust accordingly. The next important spice in this recipe is the red peppers. The flavor mix from peppers and coconut is reminiscent of Thai cuisine, but this dish is more of a fusion of Thai and Indian cuisines. Last but not least, the Tofu you need will need for this dish is the “medium firm” type. You definitely do not want them falling apart in your curry when it is too soft.
