spicy pea curry but I enjoyed the addition of tofu. I am sure it would work with regular soy tofu as well as chickpea tofu. The curry was very creamy and tasty. I used less ginger, no pepper (I don't like too much spice), no bay leaf (I felt lazy), fried onion instead of raw (it was there), powdered garlic rather than fresh (as I had none). The recipe below reflects what I would be most likely to do.
I served the curry with a lentil and sweet potato curry that was like a dal and some basmati rice. I might have served brown rice but I had been cleaning the shower and knocked E's electric shaver into a bucket of water. So the shaver went into a tub of brown rice rather than the brown rice going into dinner.
I am sending this curry to Meat Free Mondays, Healthy Vegan Fridays, Gluten Free Fridays and Eat Your Greens.

Tofu and pea curry
Adapted from Everyday Healthy Recipes
2-3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tbsp finely grated ginger
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp each cumin powder and turmeric
400g can of diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon flaked sea salt
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup coconut milk
Cut tofu into cubes. Season and fry in 1 tbsp oil until golden brown.
Fry onion, garlic, ginger, garam masala, cumin and turmeric for a few minutes. Add tomato and salt. Simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in peas and coconut milk. Once peas defrost remove from heat.
NOTES: I found the mixture quite salty when I added the tsp of flaked salt. Once it had cooked and had peas and coconut added it tasted wonderful. I didn't include onions when frying up spices because I had fried onions leftover from another meal and used them. I don't like a really spicy curry but if your tastes differ, you may want to add chillis, pepper and/or coriander. I used chickpea tofu and sprinkled it with curry powder, salt and pepper, and tossed it about before frying.
