Malaysian tofu curry & crafting for a good cause...
Ok on to Malaysian tofu curry!!
2 boxes extra firm tofu -well drained
2 15oz. cans of UNsweetened coconut milk
2 teaspoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon coriander
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon taramind paste
2 large garlic cloves minced
1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
4 roma tomatoes, seeded & diced
4 scallions, including the greens chopped
Juice of 1 lime
Drain, then dice the tofu into 1/2 inch cubes. Combine the coconut milk, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, spices, tamarind paste, garlic, and ginger in a medium skillet. Boil for 1 minute then add the tofu. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes and the scallions and simmer for 10 minutes more. Add the lime juice & salt to taste.
Serve over rice, egg noodles or linguine.
Also, thanks for the craft charity info. It's unbelievable what everyone in that area has been through, and it's not even over. You're absolutely right, every penny helps.
Our pocketbooks may be small, but our hearts are HUGE!
Yahaira I got the tamarind paste at our farmers market. It is a huge world grocery type of place. I have also seen it in health food stores. If you really have trouble finding it I would gladly mail you some!! Just let me know!
I'm also really thrilled about how fast the crafting community has acted to help out! As of 8:30 pm the site had already raised $1,500.00 and had set a new goal of $5,000.
We're offering up a couple of tee shirts & I have a knit purse I have been meaning to take pictures of for etsy that I'm going to dontate as well.
At least it's easy to spend money when you know it's going to a good cause!
Thanks for the charity info- I'm going to check that out tomorrow... after I finish my mountain of homework :P
