Follow these revisions to a great recipe!

Only use 1/4 the called for amount of tomatoes so 1 14 oz can with its juice.

Do not put ginger in this!!! I am sure that is why this recipe was said to be "off."

Also add juice of about 1/3 of a lemon.

When finished with recipe lightly salt and sprinkle with basil..

Very flavorfull..easy...and inexpensive

This recipe is just off. It is something with the tomatoes because I tried the tofu after the initial cooking and it was great. I cooked it way longer than it said too....hopefully the leftovers tomorrow taste better.

This was a terrible dish. The spice mixture was a strange taste and I would not make this again. I threw out half of the recipe. I hate wasting food.

Good tofu dish

I haven't had tikka masala in an Indian restaurant, but I've had many other dishes in many Indian restaurants (including in India). This is not an authentic dish, obviously, because one generally doesn't find tofu in Indian food. However, it's still a good, filling and healthy dish. The method of coating the tofu in the spice mixture gives it a nice flavor and texture. The sauce is a nice consistency and is plenty flavorful. We buy authentic garam masala (from an ethnic grocery, not a chain store) and I think it makes a difference. I would make this again.

Wonderful Use for Tofu

I've made this half a dozen times and it is a standard weekly go-to dish when we want to have a flavorful tofu/vegetarian meal. Fresh garam masala mix from our local co-op makes the dish come alive. The texture, color, heat, and vibrant flavors created by the ginger, garlic, and garam masala keep us coming back time and time again. I'd serve this for a company meal for our friends who like spicy Indian food.

Quick; uses ingredients at hand; flavorful
