  • 14 oz (400g) firm tofu, pressed and cubed
  • 2 cups mixed vegetables (bell peppers, baby corn, bamboo shoots, and snow peas)
  • 1 can (14 oz) coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons green curry paste (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 1 kaffir lime leaf (optional)
  • Fresh basil leaves, for garnish
  • Cooked jasmine rice, for serving


  1. Prepare the Tofu: In a large skillet, heat one tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Add the tofu cubes and fry until all sides are golden brown. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Aromatic Base: In the same skillet, add the remaining oil. Sauté the onion, garlic, and ginger until fragrant and the onion is translucent.
  3. Green Curry Paste: Stir in the green curry paste and cook for a minute to release its flavors.
  4. Vegetables: Add the mixed vegetables to the skillet, stirring to ensure they are coated in the curry paste.
  5. Coconut Milk: Pour in the coconut milk, soy sauce, brown sugar, and kaffir lime leaf (if using). Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
  6. Tofu: Add the fried tofu to the skillet. Let it simmer for another 5 minutes so the tofu can absorb the flavors of the curry.
  7. Garnish and Serve: Remove the kaffir lime leaf. Garnish the curry with fresh basil leaves and serve hot over cooked jasmine rice.


  • Green curry paste’s spiciness can vary by brand, so adjust the amount according to your heat preference.
  • You can also add other vegetables like eggplant, zucchini, or mushrooms.
  • For a non-vegan version, you might consider adding chicken, beef, or shrimp.
