Malaysian Curry Recipe
Updated: Jun 3
This Malaysian curry recipe is a plant based version of the authentic Malaysian curry. I have added Tofu as the plant based alternative ingredient; the recipe requires a variety of spices that create a good flavour profile and you may already have most of the spices in your pantry! We hope you enjoy this dish filled with the aromatic flavours from Southeast Asia!
