Potato and Tofu Spicy Peratal

I have got a very special tofu dish for today, it's Potato andTofu Peratal. This dish was so tasty and very easy to make, it's similar to my Chicken Peratal dish but I didn't add onion or garlic to this dish, you will know if you have read that recipe. Tofu is a very good source of protein as everyone knows, potato is high in carbohydrate so overall this dish a complete meal by itself if you would like to have it on its own.

Let get to the recipe now;


3 white firm tofu cubed
1 large potato cubed
1 sprig of curry leaves
1 tbsp of curry powder
1 tsp of dry chili powder
1 tsp of ground black pepper
1 tsp soft brown sugar
2 tbsp of roasted grated coconut
1/2 cup of water
1 tsp cumin seed
1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise
1 tsp of salt
Oil to fry

Shallow fry potato and tofu until golden and set aside.

In a pan, heat oil add cinnamon stick, cumin seed and star anise, then add curry leaves. Now add in fried tofu and potato, add curry powder, chili powder, brown sugar and water.

Let this mixtures simmer and gravy thickens, add salt and ground black pepper mix well. Finally add in roasted coconut and stir well until gravy completely coats the tofu and potato.

Now our Potato and Tofu Spicy Peratal is ready to be served.
