This Curry of Tofu, Mushrooms and Vegetables is a creamy spicy-sweet curry that speaks of the grandeur of Thai cuisine. While the elaborate masala paste adds spice to the preparation, coconut milk helps balance it with its sweet, milky flavour. Adding lemongrass as a bundle and removing it before serving helps to impart the tangy accents of the herb to the dish while not disturbing the dining experience with tangled shoots of grass!
