Spicy Tofu Curry

Anytime is good time for curry time for my other half-half. What do you expect? Indian man brought up lovingly by Indian mum. Everything done, no need to do housework until I struggled with getting him to do at least some light housework. Nevertheless, some improvement though compared to when we started to mate together, helping out with washing up is appreciated now. In return, he appreciate a curry packed dish ((Masala Mutton Curry, Vegetarian Mutton Curry, Indian Fish Curry, Sambar & Pepper Tamarind Curry). So per say, nava-k made this source of protein tofu vegetarian curry. Firm white tofu dusted with flour, fried for a light crispy outer layer and tipped into a spicy, tangy, aromatic curry. Walla!. Thank you people. I'm so glad you popped by at "cook with nava-k". I love you all.    

For tofu
3 pieces hard white tofu ( cut each diagonally to form 2 triangles)
1/1 tbsp corn flour
Salt for taste

Other Ingredients
1 tbsp fish curry powder (or as needed)
1/2 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
** mix these three ingredients with some water for a curry paste
2 bay leaves
4 shallots - sliced thinly
3 green chillies - cut into 1 1/2 inch length
1 (100g) medium size tomato - sliced thinly
1 small bunch of coriander leaves - sliced into long pieces
1 tbsp thick tamarind/assam juice
Salt for taste

Dust/coat tofu with flour and a little salt.
Heat enough oil and fry tofu, on both sides for a light crispy coating.
