Tofu Japanese curry-vegetarian

Some afternoon will be hazed with the problem of not having enough ingredients and our favourite vegetables. Same potato fry, carrot fry will make us tired not only to eat to make lunch too. Same routine menu list and same food make us lousy, fog our brain, drain our energy too. To energize us we need a change in our routine. Change from our daily routine food and meal.

Once I had Japanese chicken curry in a food chain. It included chicken, potato and carrots as well. I searched the internet what the curry masala Japanese curry using and finally, I came to a conclusion to add whatever spices and masalas I have. Tofu Japanese curry is the one I am planning to make.

I am not using any instant curry mix in this recipe. I am trying to do from scratch with available ingredients. I added tofu to replace the chicken and this recipe becomes a vegan for my surprise.
