I looovveee Indian cuisine. So my loverly mum bought me some tofu (I'm assuming it's med to med hard)  and some Trader Joe's curry simmer sauce. I also have a 10lb bag of enriched long grain rice. Now I figure if I mess up the rice that's no biggie considering how cheap it was and how much I have. But I'm terrified to mess up the tofu and waste the curry sauce Sad If anyone has some tips for me I would luvs you forever. Mind you I haven't cooked  since I was 10 and my cooking abilities were limited to vegetable soup and...well pretty much just vegetable soup. I can make toast though Grin

The easiest way to prepare tofu is just to bake it. Prepare the rice separately and thus there will be no risk to waste it.
However I would prepare paneer bryani. Using the tofu instead of paneer works great (You can find many paneer bryani recipes online)

thank you much. I never thought to bake it. I looked up paneer bryani but it looks complicated. I need to find some extra cash and take a cooking course lol.

You could use the curry sauce as a marinade, and then bake the tofu.

Hi there! first you may find this useful http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=204595.0

And then my tip: chop an onion in little cubes, and if you want chop some vegetables you like (like potatos, carrots, yams, whatever). Sautee the onion cubes in a skillet with some olive oil (more tasty) or sunflower oil, then add cubed tofu & cubed veggies & curry sauce. Add a little hot water if you need and let it cook until the veggie reach the consistency you like the most. If you like them you can also add raisins. Add salt and hot pepper if needed. Serve with rice.

good luck!

One thing you should know is that you really should think about pressing the tofu to get rid of the excess liquid first.  The first time I attempted to make something with tofu, I just pulled it out of the water it was sitting in and chopped it up...it broke apart in my stirfry and was just overall depressing.  I think I ate it anyhow, but at least now I know better  Cheesy
