Use veggies of your choice
The spice level of this curry is 3 on scale of 1-5 .. 1 being mild - so this is medium spicy. Adjust curry paste to your spice level
Honey , agave nectar or sugar can be used in place of peanut butter
Taste and adjust the curry paste spice , tanginess or sweetness as per your preference .
You can skip basil leaves if unavailable .
I have used Italian basil , feel free to use thai basil .
I quick steam tofu after is cubed in a microwave for 1 minute covering it with a wet paper towel.
If the curry seems very thick add water and adjust it.
