Sri Lankan Style Tofu Curry with Cherry Tomatoes

Sri Lankan Style Tofu Curry with Cherry Tomatoes

This tofu curry dish was inspired by my recent travels to Sri Lanka. It is packed with spices such as turmeric, curry powder, ginger and chilli. These spices create the delicious flavour of this tofu curry and enhances the over all nutritional value. These spices are almost always used in Sri Lankan cuisine, all of which have powerful health benefits and medicinal properties.

Tofu Curry is delicious served on a bed of rice, quinoa or even just on its own with a side of grilled vegetables.
