Butter Tofu Curry

This is a "cheat" recipe.  You see, we buy this butter chicken curry paste out of a box and make it into butter tofu curry by adding tofu, not chicken.  It's cheating because it's out of the box.   My ex-boss told me about this paste and it's such a wonderful taste and so quick to make!

I don't know what the recipe on the back of the box actually tells you to do, but all we do is follow the directions for water and use the ingredient list below:

  • 3 tablespoons butter only (about half of the recommended butter)
  • 1/2 bag frozen green peas
  • 14 oz. extra firm tofu
  • rice to serve (about 1.5 cups)
  • 2 boxes of the butter chicken curry paste
  1. Begin cooking the rice according to instructions 
  2. In a large saucepan, stir together the butter chicken curry paste, recommended water on the back of the box, and butter.  Wait until it boils.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the tofu into small pieces (like cubes)
  4. Add peas and tofu
  5. Cook together for approximately 8-10 minutes
  6. Serve over rice
This is what the box looks like:
