Chickpea Tofu Curry



Chickpea Tofu Curry

Chickpea Tofu Curry

Rich and flavorful vegan curry made with all the classical Indian spices (and honestly tastes better than any restaurant-served curries).

I used soaked and cooked (homemade) chickpeas but you def use canned ones. This dish is best served with Rice/Naan. Don’t forget to sprinkle a generous amount of freshly chopped cilantro on top. 🙂

Ingredients for Tofu (stir-fry)

Ingredients for Masala (sauce mixture)


  • In a large bowl, add tofu + rice flour + salt + pepper. Stir and mix. Make sure the tofu is well-coated with the flour.
  • Set a skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Once it's hot, add the tofu and saute on all sides until golden-brown. Transfer them to a bowl and set aside.
  • Add 1 tablespoon olive oil (in the same skillet). Once hot, add garlic + ginger + green chilies + onion. Stir-saute for 3-4 minutes or until the onions turn golden.
  • Add tomato puree + turmeric powder + cumin powder + coriander powder + salt. Mix well and cook for 5 minutes over low heat (stirring frequently). The spices must be thoroughly cooked with the sauce.
  • Next, add cooked chickpeas + water. Give it a stir, cover the lid, and cook for 5 minutes over low-medium heat.
  • Open the lid, add fried tofu + coconut cream + freshly chopped cilantro. Mix gently. Your chickpea tofu curry is now ready! Serve over rice or with flatbreads!
