Fruit is used frequently to help reduce heat in many curries. Bananas are perfect in many savoury dishes to add a hint of sweetness to balance out flavours. Serve over basmati rice.

1 pkg (350 g) extra firm tofu, chopped
1/2 tsp (2 mL) pepper
1 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp (15 mL) mild curry paste or powder
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) sodium reduced vegetable broth
