Peanut Curry with Tofu and Chickpeas

By Fredrica Syren:

This is a fun curry recipe that has a peanut flavor that comes from peanut butter powder.  It’s has the perfect balance of sweet, spicy and salty and is my kids favorite curry. Since I’m a crockpot fan I make this in my crockpot but off course it can be cooked on the stove as well.

  • 2 tbsp. peanut butter powder
  • ½ red chili, minced
  • ½ tbsp. madras curry powder
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • ¼ cup mango chutney
  • 1 cup chickpeas (cooked or canned)
  • 1 cups cubed extra firm tofu
  • 1 cup zucchini, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • ¼ cup fresh coriander, minced

Place everything except the coriander in a crockpot or a pot on stove and cooked until vegetables are soft. Crockpot on high for ca 2 hours and on stove on medium heat for 20 minutes. Sprinkle coriander over before serving. Enjoy with jasmine rice
