Miso Tasty Soft Tofu - Roasted Peanut Tofu Curry Nov 202010251

Roasted peanut tofu

Curries love tofu, especially when the tofu is soft and springy – it can take on new flavours more quickly and easily, adding a creamy subtle sweetness to the dish. This toasted peanut recipe is really quick to pull together and a great base for adding other vegetables and proteins too. *For more recipes from Miso tasty – visit Miso Tasty.

Miso Tasty Soft Tofu - Roasted Peanut Tofu Curry Nov 202010251


150 g peanuts

25 g soft brown sugar

1 tbsp ground coriander

1 tbsp ground cumin

1.5 tsp cumin seeds

2 tsp chilli powder

1 large tomato, roughly chopped

1 small onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped or grated

150 ml vegetable or sunflower oil, plus 1 tbsp

2 handfuls of coriander, finely chopped, plus extra, to serve 500 g soft tofu, drained for 20 minutes

200 ml water

To serve:

Rice or naan bread



Toast the peanuts in a pan for 3–4 minutes, then blend into a fine powder. Tip into a large bowl.


Mix in the sugar, spices, tomato, onion and garlic, then pour over the oil, stirring to make a curry sauce. Finally, mix in the chopped coriander.


Chop the tofu into chunks. Heat the 1 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan and fry the tofu, turning, until golden brown on all sides.


Slowly heat the curry sauce in a saucepan, adding the measured water.


Add the tofu to the curry sauce and simmer for a further 10 minutes. Serve with a final scattering of coriander and a generous helping of rice or naan bread.
