I had forgotten how much I love making curries.
I used to make curries all the time. They’re just so tasty, a combination of sweet and hot. And since a stir fry curry is always made from scratch, it’s a great healthy recipe. So I busted out the wok and went to town.
I tried to think of what vegetables I like in the curries I get when I’m out at an Indian restaurant and the one that popped out was potatoes. Being the fancy guy I am, I had to do something a little unique to make this recipe my own. So I baked the potatoes before putting them into the curry sauce. Great move. It gave a smokier flavor that blended really nicely with the tofu and vegetables.
