  • 1 cup firm tofu, cubed
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 2 tomatoes, pureed
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder (adjust to taste)
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish


Step 1: Preparing the Tofu and Cauliflower

  1. Begin by draining excess water from the tofu and pressing it between paper towels to remove moisture. Cut the tofu into bite-sized cubes.
  2. Heat a pan with a teaspoon of ghee or coconut oil. Pan-fry the tofu cubes until they turn golden brown. Set them aside.
  3. In the same pan, add another teaspoon of ghee or oil. Stir-fry the cauliflower florets until they become slightly tender. Set them aside as well.

Step 2: Preparing the Korma Sauce 4. In a separate pan, heat the remaining ghee or coconut oil over medium heat. Add cumin seeds and let them sizzle.

  1. Add finely chopped onions and sauté until they turn translucent.
  2. Stir in minced garlic and grated ginger. Sauté for another couple of minutes until the raw smell disappears.
  3. Add turmeric powder, coriander powder, and red chilli powder. Stir well to combine the spices evenly.
  4. Pour in the tomato puree and cook until the mixture thickens and the oil starts to separate from it. This is the base for your korma sauce.
  5. Gradually add coconut milk and water to the sauce, stirring continuously to maintain a smooth consistency.
  6. Season with salt and garam masala. Let the sauce simmer for about 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.

Step 3: Assembling the Korma 11. Gently add the pan-fried tofu and cauliflower into the simmering korma sauce. Stir well to coat them with the flavourful sauce.

  1. Cover the pan and let the dish simmer for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the tofu and cauliflower are tender and infused with the aromatic korma flavours.
  2. Check the seasoning and adjust salt or spices according to your preference.

Step 4: Serving the Tofu Cauliflower Korma 14. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves before serving.

  1. Pair this Ayurvedic Tofu Cauliflower Korma with steamed basmati rice or whole wheat naan for a complete and balanced meal.
