    1. Prepare the Tofu:
      • Press the tofu to remove excess moisture. Cut it into cubes and pan-fry in a bit of oil until golden brown on all sides. Set aside.
    2. Prepare the Curry Base:
      • In a large pan or wok, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the red curry paste and minced garlic. Stir-fry for a minute until fragrant.
    3. Add Vegetables:
      • Add the sliced red and yellow bell peppers, zucchini, baby corn, and onion to the pan. Stir-fry for a few minutes until the vegetables are slightly tender but still crisp.
    4. Add Tofu and Coconut Milk:
      • Add the pan-fried tofu cubes to the vegetables. Pour in the coconut milk, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
    5. Simmer and Season:
      • Let the curry simmer over medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together. Squeeze in the lime juice and adjust the seasoning with more soy sauce or sugar if needed.
    6. Serve:
      • Serve the Thai Red Tofu Curry over cooked jasmine rice. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves.
    Pro Tips
    • Tofu Texture: For a firmer texture, freeze the tofu overnight, then thaw and press it before cubing and pan-frying.
    • Vegetable Choices: Feel free to customize the vegetables with your favorites like mushrooms, bamboo shoots, or spinach.
    • Spice Level: Adjust the amount of red curry paste according to your spice preference; start with a little and add more if desired.
    • Coconut Milk: Use full-fat coconut milk for a creamier texture and richer flavor.
