Caribbean Curried Tofu/Quorn-Curry De Tofu/Quorn Caribeno

This is a Vegetarian adaptation of one of the most well known of the Jamaican dishes(Curried Goat)which is full of flavour,spicy,and aromatic….It is quite easy to make, although if you are making your own spice mix, be careful to add only two teaspoon of any spices at a time..The curry should be well spiced, but not bitter, gritty or even mouth numbing due to too much pepper.Be careful not to burn the spices when toasting them!Adapt the spices to your own taste though, as this is merely a guideline.

INGREDIENTS

1 Packet of Firm Tofu/Dried Tofu OR
1 Packet of Quorn(Textured and shaped vegetable protein)
1 Sweet Potato

THE SPICE MIX(If making your own curry powder)

2 Teaspoons of :
Turmeric(Haldi)

(1) Kalonji/Black Onion Seeds/Nigella Seeds
Cumin Seeds
Coriander Seeds
Mustard Seeds
Paprika(Unsmoked Sweet variety)

Grated Ginger, use a piece around the size of 2 small matchboxes,maybe a little bigger.
1-2 Onions chopped finely

METHOD

Put the whole spices, such as the fennel seeds, pimento,etc, into a heated pan on a high heat, without oil. Heat them in the pan, stirring them with a wooden spoon to evenly distribute the seasonings.
The seasonings should start to visibly turn slightly brown and emit a pleasant smell. Turn off the heat, and place the toasted seasonings into a spice grinder/mortar and pestle and grind into a powder.

Take the tofu/quorn out of the fridge,and peel and cube the sweet potato-See ‘Hard Food’recipe to know how to peel and cut root vegetables;and cut the tofu into cubes. When this been done,start to heat a pot and pour in some oil. Start to fry the onions, and then the ginger,turn every so often,so that the spices do not burn. Add the quorn/tofu and sweet potato cubes.Add water-200mls,and let it bubble for at least 10 minutes, then add the coconut milk. Simmer for another 5 minutes, or until the sauce reduces.Adjust seasoning as necessary. Serve with rice and peas, Roti,Hard Food(traditional root vegetables such as,Yam/Dasheen/Cocoyam etc), white rice, avocado, and a salad.
