  1. Crack open the cardamom pods. Reserve the seeds; discard the shells.
  2. Heat oil to quite hot (not smoking.)
  3. Add spices and bay leaf.
  4. Cook until seeds crack. (1-2 minutes.)
  5. Reduce heat to medium.
  6. Add onion and garlic. Cook until tender & translucent
  7. Reserve onion, garlic & spices to a side dish
  8. Season tofu with salt & pepper. Then fry. (Adding oil if needed.)
  9. When tofu is heated through, sauté until lightly brown (5-8 minutes).
  10. Add reserved onion/spice mixture.
  11. Add currants and sauté for 3-5 minutes.
    • At this point, tofu may be cooled & chilled for re-heating the following day, up to a week.
    • The spices continue to blend their flavors – this dish re-heated tastes as well as, or better than, when freshly cooked!
  12. Add sour cream, yogurt and, if using: coconut milk & butter.
  13. Simmer until sauce has cooked down a little.
  14. Add toasted almonds (and toasted coconut, if using.)

Serve hot with Saffron Sweet Rice.
