Sharing this delicious Tofu Tikka Curry recipe with all my Vegan friends today. In this recipe, I’ve achieved the velvety texture with the use of nuts. I’ve paired the Curry with crisp pan fried Tofu that was marinated in Tikka Masala, coated in whole wheat flour and pan fried until crisp and delicious.

You can also prepare this Tofu Tikka Curry with any vegetables of your choice instead of Tofu. If you are not Vegan, Paneer tastes absolutely delicious in this recipe too.

Do try my Tofu Tikka Curry and tag me on Instagram @supaintsonplates #supaintsonplates. I would be delighted to hear from you.



A vibrant, silky Vegan curry served with crisp pan fried Tofu. So delicious that it will be hard to believe it's actually healthy.
