1 Deelicious Dishes Mince Curry Spice Mix
1 large block tofu
4 tins red kidney beans

In a food processor, blend the tofu and beans in small batches to achieve a mince like texture. Mix in the spice powder (pack 3), the molasses and miso. Leave aside for up to 20 minutes or overnight in the fridge. 

Heat a large pan with the oil and fry the whole cumin seeds (included in spice mix) until fragrant. Add the onions and sauté until browning, then add spice powder 2 and fry for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and tofu/bean mix and the diced potatoes.

Cook for 15-20 minutes or until spuds are tender. Check seasoning and adjust. 

Meanwhile steam your rice or pan fry your roti.
