I love Thai and it’s my 2nd preferred cuisine after Italian. I have been trying to prepare Thai curry powder from scratch at home and I was surprised that it’s super easy to make. I wonder why I always thought that some magical spices are required for Thai dishes to make it so scrumptious.
Believe me you don’t require any exotic grocery planning, it’s simple and can be made with the already available spice rack in our kitchen pantry. The aromatic and beautiful yellow curry powder took me by surprise with its taste and outstanding flavor. This curry powder can be prepared in just a few minutes and without any mess. I usually make batches of this curry powder and store it for a month in a cool dark place along with my other spices. I wanted to make a healthier version of Yellow Curry fried rice that we eat in our favorite restaurants so that we can practically indulge while maintaining our fitness. 🙂 . Also I am not very fond of the Fish oil/sauce and wanted to create some vegan version.
Therefore, after trying few times to perfect the taste today I am finally sharing my healthy vegan Yellow Curry Veggie Quinoa with Tofu made from scratch and it takes only 30 minutes to prepare. Even then if you fall short on time prepare the curry powder during weekend and store in an air tight glass jar container in your spice rack along with your other spices. Simple solution! Right? 🙂
For quinoa I just made a small change. While cooking quinoa instead of boiling only in water I combined coconut milk along with water to bring out that delicious Thai flavor in this protein rich grain. This can also be cooked ahead of time.
Now that all the prep is done let’s get started with combining all the ingredients to cook Yellow Curry Veggie Quinoa with Tofu. Just heat oil in a pan and add herbs, curry powder, vegetables, seasonings, tofu and quinoa. Serve hot with a lemon wedge and enjoy healthy Thai cuisine guilt free in the comfort of your home. 🙂
