Recipe Ingredients

Tofu- The main ingredient of this dish, it is made of condensed soy milk that is shaped like a block, also known as Bean Curds, Tofu can be silken, firm, extra-firm, or super firm but here we are making it extra-firm.

Curry paste- Add to make this recipe tastier, prepared with some spices and veggies, you don't have to prepare it, buy your favorite curry paste from any market.

Kaffir Lime Leaves- It has a citrusy flavor or bitter taste because of its leaves. Many of us don't like much so you can also add Traditional lime leaves, But I would personally recommend you to try Kaffir Lime Leaves. If you don't have them, you can use any Kaffir Lime Leaves Substitute instead.

Vegetables - anything you like. I used red and green bell peppers and onion.
