Fried tofu is served over basmati rice with a rich, spicy sauce!
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 cup uncooked basmati rice, rinsed and drained
- 3 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 (14 ounce) package firm water-packed tofu, drained and cubed
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 (10 ounce) can coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons green curry paste
Place water in a medium saucepan, and stir in the rice. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Remove from heat, cool slightly, and fluff with a fork.
Heat the sesame oil in a separate medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in tofu. Stirring occasionally, fry about 20 minutes, until evenly crisp and lightly browned. Season with salt.
In a small saucepan, bring the coconut milk to a boil. Mix in green curry paste. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Drizzle generously over the tofu and rice to serve.
