Procedure edit

  1. Crack open the cardamom pods. Reserve the seeds; discard the shells.
  2. Heat oil to quite hot but not smoking in a pan. Add spices and bay leaf. Cook until seeds crack (1–2 minutes).
  3. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion and garlic, then cook until tender and translucent.
  4. Reserve onion, garlic, spices to a side dish.
  5. Season tofu with salt and pepper. Fry, adding oil if needed. When tofu is heated through, sauté until lightly brown (5–8 minutes).
  6. Add reserved onion/spice mixture.
  7. Add currants and sauté for 3–5 minutes. At this point, the tofu may be cooled and chilled for re-heating the following day.
  8. Add sour cream, yogurt, coconut milk, and butter. Simmer until sauce has cooked down a little.
  9. Add toasted almonds and toasted coconut.
  10. Serve hot with Saffron Sweet Rice.
