Thai Tofu Stir-Fry


Thai curry pastes are extremely versatile. Apart from their use in curries they are also used in stir-fries and marinades and many other dishes. In this dish I have used tofu but I could also have used thinly sliced meat or simply vegetables on their own. You can really experiment with this one and chop and change ingredients as you wish and still come out with a great result.



280 g firm or extra firm Tofu
1 Pouch of My Thai Curry Red Curry Paste

10 g Light soy sauce

10 g white sugar

Vegetable oil

1 lime

1 onion,

1 garlic clove,

2 chopped tomatoes

Vegetables of your own choice


I’ve used firm tofu and because I’m not deep frying it I find it is sufficient to press it between some paper towels with a weight on top to remove most of the water.

Heat the pan add the pressed tofu and cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and cook on a higher heat for five minutes browning the tofu.

Remove the tofu, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil half a red onion, and a chopped clove of garlic to the pan and cook until brown.

Return the tofu to the pan with 10 g of light soy sauce, 10 g white sugar, and 130ml water and cook until the water is evaporated.

Remove the mixture from the pan. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to the pan with the remaining half red onion and chopped red tomato and cook until softened.

Return the tofu mixture to the pan add one packet of My Thai Curry red curry paste with your chosen vegetables, add around 120 ml of water and cook through until the vegetables are cooked.

Test and adjust to taste with a squeeze of lime
