Palak Tofu

45 min

Main

The texture of this spiced tofu is so like paneer, that it boggles my mind every time we make this curry. The vibrant green hue is from loads of spinach we added to the dish, and we didn't hold back on the spice in this recipe, so some warm rice and/or fluffy naan is a definite must.

Ingredients

Rice

  • 1 cup (200 g)
    uncooked basmati rice

Curry

  • ¾ cup (98 g)
    raw cashews
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL)
    vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1
    medium onion, finely chopped
  • 5
    cloves garlic, minced
  • 1
    jalapeño, minced
  • 1 Tbsp (6 g)
    whole cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp (2 g)
    chili flakes, or less if you prefer less spicy
  • 1 Tbsp (6 g)
    ground coriander
  • 1 Tbsp (5 g)
  • ½ tsp
    cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp
    salt
  • 1¾ cups (420 mL)
    canned full-fat coconut milk
  • 4½ cups (135 g)
    fresh spinach
  • ½
    lemon, juiced

Seasoned tofu

  • 16 oz (450 g)
    firm tofu, pressed, cut into 1 cm cubes
  • 1 Tbsp (6 g)
    curry powder
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL)
    vegetable oil, for frying

Directions

  1. Cook the rice according to the package directions.
  2. Add the cashews to a bowl and cover with boiling water. Set aside.
  3. Add the tofu cubes, curry powder, and nutritional yeast to a large bowl. Toss to coat.
  4. Add oil to a large pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add the seasoned tofu and cook until golden on all sides. Stir periodically, but avoid over-stirring as this can break up the tofu.
  5. Meanwhile, add some more oil to a large pot on medium-high heat. When hot, add the onion and garlic. Cook until lightly golden.
  6. Then add the jalapeño, cumin seeds, and chili flakes. Cook for 2 minutes.
  7. Drop the heat to medium-low and add the remaining ground spices. Toast for 30 - 60 seconds, stirring throughout.
  8. Then add the drained cashews, coconut milk, and spinach. Cook until the spinach is wilted. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
  9. Transfer the spinach mixture to a blender. Blend until smooth, then return the mixture to the pot.
  10. Add some lemon juice, and the cooked tofu. Stir, and cook until everything is heated through.
  11. Serve with the rice or naan and garnish as desired. Enjoy!

Hi Sadia and PUL-team!
This looks so delicious and I would love to give it a try. For health reasons I have to follow a diet very low in saturated fats (OMS-diet), and coconut is a no-go: is there a non-coconut replacement you could suggest? Would cashew- or almondmilk work? Thank you in advance!


Riana - June 16, 2024, 8:52 p.m.

Ugh, so good.


Caterina Michalitsi - June 16, 2024, 7:07 p.m.

Just cooked it. I tuned down the spices because I have small kids. We loved it!!! Thanks for the great recipe 😘 ❤


Andrew Phillips - June 12, 2024, 3:29 a.m.

Whooooo extra spicy!!!! But love it!!! Maybe I got a super spicy Jalapeño.


Eli - June 8, 2024, 3:03 p.m.

5 star restaurant level dish ⭐️
Even though the recipe contains spicy ingredients, you can easily handle them…and it tastes absolutely delicious!
Thank you PUL 🌱😊

PUL Team - June 9, 2024, 8:23 p.m.

Thank YOU, Eli! 😊


Joanne & Tijs - June 7, 2024, 12:28 p.m.

This is such a tasty meal (and a dish that I’ve missed since becoming vegan) 😍 Easy to make and surprisingly filling too. Personally prefer light coconut milk over the full fat one for this recipe (have tried it both ways). This is definitely a keeper!


Therese - June 6, 2024, 11:28 p.m.

Delicious. I have made it probably 20 times by now. I have made some changes to fit my taste more like adding maple syrup for sweetness. But overall a great basic recipe and super quick to make.


Anna - June 4, 2024, 10:37 p.m.

To anyone reading this looking for the next amazing PuL recipe. You just found it! Restaurant style Indian dish. Die flavours are incredible and the tofu fits perfectly to the sauce. Will be making this regularly now :)

PUL Team - June 5, 2024, 12:42 a.m.

Gosh what a huge compliment, Anna! Thank you for the glowing review ✨


Tanya Hafeez - June 4, 2024, 10:11 p.m.

So good! It was creamy and spicy and went well with basmati rice! I cooked the tofu in my air fryer and it was perfect!

Jennifer Lau - June 19, 2024, 2:07 a.m.

How long and at what temperature did you cook the tofu in the airfryer for (please)?

Tanya Hafeez - June 20, 2024, 4:37 a.m.

So sorry if my response is late! I put the seasoned tofu in my airfryer at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes. It was so good!


mareike - May 19, 2024, 8:10 a.m.

Super yummi! Absolutly easy to make
and such a good way to use up spinach which might not be freshest anymore.


Pat Ess - May 18, 2024, 2:58 a.m.

Thanks PUL for providing the easy option to scale down the recipe!! I only had about half the spinach and less than half cashews so I scaled back to 2 servings... simple but really delicious recipe!!


Roos Obdam - May 12, 2024, 4:43 p.m.

Dit is echt een heerlijk gerecht.

This is really delicious. I made it today for lunch and look forward to my lunch tomorrow!


Lily Purimitla - May 12, 2024, 8:37 a.m.

I came here to stay!!!! Thank you for this beautiful recipe and this app!

PUL Team - May 13, 2024, 2:45 a.m.

Oh you're the sweetest, Lily 🫶 thank you for sharing your love and light!


Maria - May 6, 2024, 11:03 p.m.

I’ve never had tofu and been able to eat it BUT finally, with this recipe, I’m transformed. Super easy and oh so delicious! I meal prepped it to take to work every day. Perfect!

PUL Team - May 7, 2024, 7:31 a.m.

Woohoo! Enjoy your work lunches, Maria 🥰


Chiara - May 6, 2024, 8:13 p.m.

A very delicious meal that’s easy to make!


Teresa - May 6, 2024, 5:44 a.m.

This was super easy to make and tasty! I cooked the tofu in the airfryer and it turned out great! Thank you!!


Ozmonda Csaki - May 5, 2024, 7:39 p.m.

Kateřina Vorbová - May 5, 2024, 4:18 p.m.

Emanuela Vávrová - May 5, 2024, 2:38 p.m.

Love it. Someday I totally do it again. It's really delicious


Madeline Ahrens - May 4, 2024, 9:04 p.m.

This stuff fricken SLAPS. I recommend a double batch.


Stacie Schlange - May 2, 2024, 1:03 a.m.

This was absolutely delicious!! My husband and I agree it was like getting take out from the fancy Indian restaurant in our neighborhood. On top of being delicious, it was the perfect weeknight dinner: easy and nutritious!

PUL Team - May 3, 2024, 12:09 a.m.

Beyond happy to hear it was enjoyed, Stacie, thank you!


Tiana Bogaert - April 28, 2024, 8:25 p.m.

They say never to try a new recipe when you’re having guests over but PUL never disappoints, so I took the risk and made this for some non plant based foodie friends who came over for dinner for the first time. They absolutely loved it! I’ve made tofu palak paneer before but this recipe has definitely replaced the old one in my books. I used an immersion blender because I don’t have a stand blender and it worked perfectly (plus fewer dishes).

PUL Team - April 29, 2024, 1:15 a.m.

Gosh we’re so honoured to hear this, Tiana! It means a lot to be welcomed into your kitchen with trust. Were excited to share more delicious meals together 🥰


Jennifer Lawrence - April 25, 2024, 10:27 p.m.

OMG! One thing I’ve missed as a vegan is palek paneer and this totally makes up for it!


Jennifer Lawrence - April 25, 2024, 3:44 a.m.

Hi team! Does the nutrition info include the rice as well? Thanks:):):)

PUL Team - April 25, 2024, 6:56 a.m.

Hey Jennifer, yes the nutrition estimate includes the rice 🙂

Jennifer Lawrence - April 25, 2024, 11:51 a.m.

Amazing! What a team! You always respond so promptly:)


isabelle - April 22, 2024, 1:23 a.m.

Perfect balance of spicy and creamy👌

Ivanov Ana-Larisa (Ivanov Ana-Larisa) - May 1, 2024, 12:34 p.m.

I couldn't agree more


Brigita - April 10, 2024, 7:34 p.m.

Amazingly flavorful and creamy 😌


Sophie van der vis - April 7, 2024, 9:43 a.m.

Really delicious!


Micaela - April 4, 2024, 8:18 p.m.

This was super tasty. Missed a few ingredients but was spicy enough without the jalapeños and cayenne pepper. Never fails to disappoint!


Gemma - March 30, 2024, 8:23 p.m.

This was absolutely delicious and really easy to make! The cook along feature is perfect. It was especially helpful to have the quantities of each ingredient under the instructions!


Stacy - March 29, 2024, 8:56 p.m.

Good!


Malou - March 28, 2024, 12:52 p.m.

This was incredibly good!! I left the jalapeño and chili flakes out because my baby mouth could never 😅 Definitely will make again!


Sophie van der vis - March 23, 2024, 10 p.m.

Really delicious!


Nikhita Rajwade - March 21, 2024, 4:41 p.m.

Tried this recipe and it turned out to be super awesome! The curry powder coating to tofu pieces is an amazing touch! 😋
Love from India❤️

PUL Team - March 22, 2024, 2:20 a.m.

So happy to hear you enjoyed the tofu, Nikhita! Sending lots of love to India 💛


Lisa - March 17, 2024, 2:41 a.m.

Nice flavours.


Martunia - March 16, 2024, 4:40 p.m.

Very good. I'm having a cold, so this recipe came to the rescue with all its anti-inflammatory properties. And the tofu bites are just heavenly!

PUL Team - March 18, 2024, 8:01 p.m.

So glad you enjoyed it, Martunia, and hope you feel better soon!


Nina - March 15, 2024, 8:26 p.m.

Wow! This dish left me beaming and speechless! The spices, the texture and the taste are out of this world! My fiancée and I made two extra portions for the next day, but it was so delicious that we ended up eating everything at once haha we just couldn't stop until the last bite was gone :)


Marius Nicula - March 13, 2024, 1:58 p.m.

Amazing recipe and a really good way to include spinach and tofu in a dish. I don't really like tofu, but done like this, it was great. I did have to make some adjustments so I can't say 100% how the recipe here is, but I believe it would be just as good. I used frozen spinach cause that was all I had, added coriander as well because I love it, and I didn't have jalapeno, so I used a small package of thai green curry paste, but I believe that enhanced the flavour a lot. All in all, another great dish!

PUL Team - March 13, 2024, 10:42 p.m.

Mmm such tasty twists, Marius! Thank you 💚


Lucija Jakuš - March 2, 2024, 1:56 p.m.

I cannot recommend this recipe enough. Amazing even in non-vegan version!


Stine Laybourn - Feb. 29, 2024, 4:21 p.m.

Great flavors, but too heavy for me. Needed more coconut milk and a lot of lemon to get the right consistency and balance


Suzy B. - Feb. 23, 2024, 11:20 a.m.

Really delicious and absolutely beautiful colour!


Margi Dawson - Feb. 20, 2024, 1:40 a.m.

Easy to make and very nutritious and delicious ☺️


KraftyKat - Feb. 18, 2024, 7:36 p.m.

This is sooooo good. Every member of the family loves it and with the garlic naan is next level! Thank you for yet another fantastic recipe!

PUL Team - Feb. 19, 2024, 1:01 a.m.

Thank YOU for the glowing review and welcoming us into your kitchen, friend ✨


Tomi - Feb. 18, 2024, 11:09 a.m.

This recipe is so delicious and so easy to make! It's fast becoming a favourite in our house!


Beth - Feb. 16, 2024, 10:58 p.m.

I’ve made this recipe twice and it’s absolutely delicious!!
Pan-frying tofu is not my strength ;) so I baked it the second time…still so yummy!!!
Every recipe I’ve tried is wonderful!
Thank you!!!🥰

PUL Team - Feb. 18, 2024, 3:23 a.m.

Aw thanks for welcoming us into your kitchen, Beth! Happy cooking 💛


Ana - Feb. 15, 2024, 2:06 p.m.

Amazing recipe, it was so satisfying. I would definetly make it again 😍


carly - Feb. 13, 2024, 8:42 p.m.

so creamy, great flavor and beautiful color. will be adding this one to my rotation


julie - Feb. 11, 2024, 7:15 p.m.

So good and conforting !!! 🥰 I love palak paneer so to have a vegan alternative is my joy !


Shayda Abidi - Feb. 1, 2024, 4:08 p.m.

Bomb.


Alexis Traboly - Jan. 31, 2024, 10:42 p.m.

Num num nummy


Lis - Jan. 29, 2024, 8:24 p.m.

Absolutely delicious!!


Lisanne - Jan. 28, 2024, 2:39 p.m.

I loved this! Packed with flavour and just allround delicious. Would definitely make this again. The only thing I would say is that the amount of portions didn’t quite work out for me. I would say I got around 2-3 portions out of it (rather than 4 which the recipe stated). I added some more coconut milk and some water to thin it out slightly so it would serve 3-4 :)


Jill - Jan. 28, 2024, 3:04 a.m.

I could eat this every night of the week!


Phillipa - Jan. 24, 2024, 1:06 a.m.

Delicious and a hit with our toddler too. I cooked the tofu in the air fryer to speed things up and used english curry powder. I'm going to make it again using a different curry powder to see the difference in taste and heat levels. I think I might add some peas at the end next time too.

PUL Team - Jan. 24, 2024, 7:21 p.m.

A lovely idea to use the airfryer and add peas, Phillipa! Thanks for sharing your experience with the palak tofu 🤗


Lisa - Jan. 23, 2024, 5:47 a.m.

Great flavors.


Athina - Jan. 22, 2024, 2:41 p.m.

Sooo good!


Susana - Jan. 21, 2024, 6:40 p.m.

Everything about this recipe was perfect. I'll be making it again! :)


wabbo - Jan. 18, 2024, 7:53 p.m.

Super easy to make and delicious! Only the portion size didn't fit for us, we're two and we finished the four portions in one go 😄


Hannah - Jan. 18, 2024, 5:43 p.m.

This was 10/10!!! I used pickled jalapeños and it worked really well! 🥰


Rachel Coward - Jan. 17, 2024, 11:48 p.m.

Turned out so good!! For easy cleanup, I did the tofu in the oven at 400 on parchment paper for 30 mins. I substituted white rice with brown rice. I happen to have a chili pepper in the frig — de-seeding provided a good heat.


Joosje Hendrikx - Jan. 17, 2024, 7:34 p.m.

Yum! I added some chickpeas for extra protein and cherry tomatoes for acidity. Works really well. Pick up limes ♥️

PUL Team - Jan. 17, 2024, 9:01 p.m.

A delicious idea, Joosje, thank you! 😃


Marlene Roman - Jan. 15, 2024, 9:18 p.m.

Delicious!


Nour Dukmak - Jan. 14, 2024, 8:35 a.m.

I always love a good palak paneer/tofu recipe and this one had the best flavor so far!


Elaine - Jan. 14, 2024, 2:01 a.m.

Oh my goodness! This was DELICIOUS!!!! I’m newly vegetarian and this has all of the flavor and creaminess I could ask for. So good!!!

PUL Team - Jan. 14, 2024, 5:25 a.m.

Thanks for welcoming us on your journey with plant-foods, Elaine! We're so happy to hear 🤗


Iris - Jan. 12, 2024, 7:12 p.m.

Really liked this recipe - creamy, green & tasty! Quite a few bowls and utensils are required but I fried the Tofu in a big wok pan, saved it for later and just put the rest for the curry in afterwards. World just as well!

PUL Team - Jan. 13, 2024, 7:32 p.m.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with the curry, Iris!


Lisa - Jan. 9, 2024, 3:53 a.m.

So good! I added some fresh coriander to the mix and blended it together.


Liv - Jan. 8, 2024, 12:53 p.m.

Delicious!


Aleksandra - Jan. 5, 2024, 6:08 p.m.

So yummy!


Emma - Jan. 5, 2024, 2:09 p.m.

So delicious! Love it! Keep up the good work! Love you guys!


Deepika A - Jan. 5, 2024, 1:15 a.m.

This tastes really good - although I am not sure why my final dish doesn’t look as creamy as the one in the picture here.

PUL Team - Jan. 5, 2024, 7:33 p.m.

Hey Deepika, we used a high-powdered blender which can help to puree the mixture really well. Blending for longer can help the dish get more creamy 😃


Rajni Kaur - Jan. 3, 2024, 8:33 p.m.

This is such a tasty and easy dish to make, the flavours are rich and the spinach is very moreish. Will definitely be making this one again! Thank you, Sadia and the PUL team for this one :)

PUL Team - Jan. 4, 2024, 1:27 a.m.

Thank you for the glowing review, Rajni, it means the world! 💛


Ritika - Jan. 3, 2024, 5:24 p.m.

Great recipe! Indian mom approved hahahaha!


Tammy palmer - Jan. 3, 2024, 12:49 a.m.

Yummy!


Mareike - Jan. 2, 2024, 8:17 p.m.

Super good & satisfying. Definitely a keeper 😊


Theresa - Dec. 31, 2023, 9:15 p.m.

I’ve made this once a week for the last 3 weeks and plan to continue the trend! Thank you for the recipe!!

PUL Team - Jan. 3, 2024, 6:36 a.m.

Woop woop! So happy that the palak tofu is being enjoyed, Theresa :)


Ana-Claudia - Dec. 26, 2023, 8:51 p.m.

This was great like all the other recipes from you:) Will definitely do it again! My 2 year old ate it even if it was green 😄.. i had to leave out the jalapeño:(


Pauline P. - Dec. 24, 2023, 8:29 a.m.

I cooked several recipes from you for my family, their idea about vegetarian and vegan change completely ! They found everything so delicious, wholesome and filling (that's their biggest fear to feel hungry soon after). Thank you so so much for helping us sharing with us incredible recipes and enjoy those moments ♡♡♡

PUL Team - Dec. 26, 2023, 9:27 a.m.

That's the best compliment we could receive, Pauline, thank you for sharing our recipes with your family! 🤗


Laurie McKay - Dec. 23, 2023, 2:44 a.m.

This was spectacular! We didn't change a thing! Delicious! Thank you!!


C'sMelody - Dec. 22, 2023, 3:44 p.m.

This is absolutely fabulous! So flavorful and complex. I didn't have spinach, so I swapped it for peas to still get the green colour and added more chili flakes and lemon juice to compensate for the sweetness. Will absolutely be making this again!

PUL Team - Dec. 22, 2023, 8:11 p.m.

Thanks for taking the time to share the lovely review, C'sMelody! We're thrilled that the Palak Tofu was enjoyed 😃


Liesbeth - Dec. 21, 2023, 7:52 p.m.

Liked the taste and slight spicyness! Will definitely make this again!


Jaya Venkat - Dec. 20, 2023, 3:08 a.m.

Palak tofu was delicious


Erika T - Dec. 19, 2023, 8:39 p.m.

Oohoo this was really lovely! 🤩
We're really enjoying this app, this was a great recipe to start with! It didn't need any changes at all, and it's a fun way to eat a fair bit of spinach! 😋

PUL Team - Dec. 20, 2023, 8:42 a.m.

It means a lot that the recipe and app are being enjoyed, Erika! We're excited to continue this adventure together 🥰


Jaya Venkat - Dec. 19, 2023, 6:08 a.m.

Flavorful and wholesome


Audrey - Dec. 16, 2023, 4:06 p.m.

Delicious and easy! I did miss the texture from the veggies, so I threw some veggies in with the leftovers. We loved the bright green color.


Rike - Dec. 14, 2023, 9:29 p.m.

Very Green, Shrek like colour just amazing! Best I have cooked in a long time! Very delicious!

PUL Team - Dec. 15, 2023, 8:16 a.m.

We're smiling from ear to ear hearing this lovely review, Rike, thank you! 🥰


Leesha - Dec. 14, 2023, 8:07 p.m.

This was incredibly yummy. It was not complicated and I actually skipped the cashews because I didn't have any.


Alicia Jonker - Dec. 14, 2023, 1:46 p.m.

Restaurant quality dish ❤️ (even when you use frozen spinach)


MB - Dec. 14, 2023, 2:57 a.m.

Delicious ❤️


Jess82 - Dec. 14, 2023, 2:53 a.m.

This looks so delicious! Is there a way to make this recipe nut free? My son is anaphylactic to nuts and seeds😢

PUL Team - Dec. 15, 2023, 2:04 a.m.

Hey Jess82, the cashews help to make the Palak Tofu a little bit thicker. You could leave the cashews out entirely for a less creamy curry. Alternatively, you could use equal parts plant-based creamer, like soy creamer or oat creamer. We hope this helps for now ☺️

Jess82 - Dec. 15, 2023, 2:24 a.m.

Amazing thank you so much! Love your recipes and love love love this new app!

PUL Team - Dec. 15, 2023, 3:59 a.m.

Aw we're so thrilled to hear, Jess82! Excited to continue this culinary adventure together 🫶


Kirsten Petersen - Dec. 13, 2023, 8:04 p.m.

Delicious and easy to make. We will add more spinach next time and might use less coconut milk. The spices were so fragrant, and I felt satiated and nourished after eating this meal.


merzia cutlerywala - Dec. 13, 2023, 8:27 a.m.

I added a touch too much spice but this is a great dish and easy to follow!


kaylin - Dec. 12, 2023, 4:18 p.m.

Amazing


Peter RÓŽA - Dec. 12, 2023, 11:25 a.m.

Great and easy to make recipe. 👍


Linda Fe - Dec. 12, 2023, 12:46 a.m.

My mouth is a buzz with all the flavors! Cannot wait to make it again and pair it with the garlic naan!
Blended with a hand blender. It didn't get it as creamy as a standing would, but it was still delicious!

PUL Team - Dec. 12, 2023, 8:38 a.m.

Yayy we're so happy to hear, Linda! Enjoy it with the garlic naan 🤗


Elena V Fisher - Dec. 11, 2023, 10:45 p.m.

This dish is AMAZINGLY good. We made it twice within one week! Such great flavors, we couldn't get enough. This will become a staple in our home for sure!

PUL Team - Dec. 12, 2023, 8:06 a.m.

Woop woop! So happy that you enjoyed the Palak Tofu, Elena 🤗✨


smoore - Dec. 11, 2023, 9:14 p.m.

My husband said it’s the best curry I’ve ever made! Came together pretty quick and was pretty easy.

PUL Team - Dec. 12, 2023, 7:57 a.m.

Such a huuge compliment, Smoore, thank you! Happy cooking 😊


Monica - Dec. 11, 2023, 6:36 p.m.

This was really good and easy to make!


Morganna - Dec. 10, 2023, 6:59 p.m.

Simply amazing! And that is coming from someone who hates spinach 😉.

PUL Team - Dec. 11, 2023, 2:30 a.m.

A huuuge compliment, Morganna! Sounds like maybe spinach isn't so bad after all? 😜


Missy - Dec. 10, 2023, 3:08 a.m.

Very delicious, I had mine over a baked potato and was really good. I also didn’t blend it all up, but left some ingredients whole and it added nice texture and a slight crunch. Enjoyed it very much!


Sami - Dec. 10, 2023, 2:38 a.m.

Delightful. Added some cilantro to the blender and it added a nice flavor.


annaka - Dec. 10, 2023, 1:49 a.m.

I’d give it 100 stars if I could! I saw a pic of this recipe on instagram and it’s what finally convinced me to download the app. Worth every penny this recipe is TO DIE FOR!

PUL Team - Dec. 10, 2023, 1:55 a.m.

A huuuuge compliment, Annaka! Thanks for welcoming us into your kitchen. We can't wait to continue this culinary adventure together 💚


Nora - Dec. 10, 2023, 12:56 a.m.

So delicious! Can't wait to make it again


Rob - Dec. 9, 2023, 11:02 p.m.

I'd been itching to make this ever since I saw the recipe on YouTube, but my blender was packed away to move house. Finally got it unpacked and set up and made this delicious meal for dinner after a long day. Definitely one that needs two pans going so the tofu can get nice and crispy while you make the sauce. It's another simple recipe but full of flavour and a great recipe to get some leafy greens in your day!

PUL Team - Dec. 10, 2023, 1:51 a.m.

Hope the move went as smoothly as possible, Rob, and everything is settling in! Your positive review means a lot ☺️


Margarita Kuzina - Dec. 9, 2023, 8:07 p.m.

Added smoked tofu and grilled pakchoi, absolutely amazing. My boyfriend doesn't like spinach, but loved the sause!!! Thank you

PUL Team - Dec. 10, 2023, 1:50 a.m.

Aww thanks so much for sharing your experience with it! So happy that the recipe was enjoyed by you and your boyfriend, Margarita 😊


Sophie - - Dec. 9, 2023, 6:18 p.m.

Easy and delicious! Makes quite a lot


Amanda - Dec. 9, 2023, 3:08 a.m.

This looks gourmet and is absolutely incredible. Paired it with the garlic naan from the app and OMG. Perfect family meal! I had a good portion of sauce left so I froze it so we can have this again next week!

PUL Team - Dec. 9, 2023, 6:49 a.m.

We're smiling from ear to ear, Amanda, thank you for this glowing review! So happy the Palak Tofu and Naan were enjoyed. Cheers to more delicious meals together 😃


Oli - Dec. 7, 2023, 7:32 p.m.

This dish is insanely delicious. I feel so stuffed with scrumptiousness :)


Stefanie - Dec. 7, 2023, 6:53 p.m.

Wow! Such an amazing dish! Will definitely cook it again. Also absolutely love the vibrant colours of the dish.


Karne Steyn - Dec. 7, 2023, 6:21 p.m.

Wow! We had it last night and it was fantastic.
I faintly remember having this or something similar a few years ago at my parents in law and was obsessed with the taste.
So glad I finally got to eat it again.
The curry taste wasn't overwhelming, my two year old even ate it.
My family is enjoying all the great recipes on the app, and I'm having a blast making them. Thanks PUL team.

PUL Team - Dec. 8, 2023, 7:50 a.m.

Aww thanks so much for welcoming us into your kitchen and culinary journey, Karne, it means the world! Cheers to more delicious meals together ✨


star bird - Dec. 7, 2023, 6:31 a.m.

Easy, delicious, and actually took 45 min!


Micah Clark Moody - Dec. 7, 2023, 3:54 a.m.

This was SO good! Thank you PUL crew!


Dawn Johnson - Dec. 7, 2023, 2:33 a.m.

Divine! I used extra firm tofu...may try a softer one next time. Easy to make as well.


Clare Campbell McKenzie - Dec. 6, 2023, 11:19 p.m.

I loved this so much! I used torn up silver beet because that's what I had and added a cup of frozen peas into the sauce after blending.

PUL Team - Dec. 7, 2023, 3:36 a.m.

That sounds incredible, Clare! 🙌 so happy the palak tofu was enjoyed ☺️


Eline - Dec. 6, 2023, 9:36 p.m.

Delicious! I added some chickpeas, which was a nice addition.
This is the first recipe I tried using the app, the cooking feature is so helpful. After a long day at work, it made it so much easier to follow the steps and put dinner on the table. I'm excited to try more recipes!

PUL Team - Dec. 7, 2023, 3:52 a.m.

A delicious addition, Eline! Cook along mode is one of our favourite features of the app - doesn’t it make cooking a breeze?! ☺️


Elise M. - Dec. 6, 2023, 9:18 p.m.

So nourishing and wholesome! Delicious flavour once again 😋


Edita Holmes - Dec. 6, 2023, 6:43 p.m.

So so so delicious. Made it twice already!
Thank you.
Love the app.
Can't wait to try holiday menus x

PUL Team - Dec. 8, 2023, 7:39 a.m.

Yay! Thanks, Edita, we hope you love the holiday menus as well 🥰


Jack Turner - Dec. 5, 2023, 9:53 p.m.

So tasty 😋


Mikah Lee - Dec. 5, 2023, 1:11 p.m.

Didn't manage to blend it creamy enough, but still tasted great!


Lauralyn Busekrus - Dec. 5, 2023, 3:17 a.m.

Made this tonight, and wow, what a delightful flavor bomb! Delicious.


Tammy - Dec. 4, 2023, 10:56 p.m.

So good! Even without the cashews (my son is allergic)


Nicole Mostofa - Dec. 4, 2023, 10:23 p.m.

Delicious. Some kasuri methi will make it restaurant-like.
Easy and quick. I used an immersion blender to blend and air fryer for the tofu. Turned out great!


Magdalena G - Dec. 4, 2023, 8:01 p.m.

Simple, quick and ridiculously delicious! Brown rice also works great here ☺️


Annabel - Dec. 4, 2023, 4:24 p.m.

My boyfriend made this after we’ve seen Robin making it on YouTube. What a great dish! Absolutely loved it! (Also great cinematic job Sadia, the video was a bliss)

PUL Team - Dec. 5, 2023, 9:05 p.m.

Aww thanks, Annabel, it means a lot! Can't wait to share more cinematic content 😜


Charlotte - Dec. 4, 2023, 3:02 a.m.

The flavor on this was outstanding! I didn’t have nutritional yeast, so I just sprinkled a little salt on the tofu before I cooked it.


Katie - Dec. 4, 2023, 12:41 a.m.

So good!


Alex_vM - Dec. 3, 2023, 5:56 p.m.

Yummy. Also: Love the app and its features!!!

PUL Team - Dec. 4, 2023, 4:01 a.m.

Woohoo! Thanks, Alex_vM, we're excited to continue this culinary adventure together 🤗


Lara - Dec. 3, 2023, 5:52 p.m.

Great description


Amanda C - Dec. 3, 2023, 2 a.m.

It's delicious! I like a lot of 🍋


Inu - Dec. 2, 2023, 6:29 p.m.

Amazing dish. Truly amazing!!


Dorka - Dec. 2, 2023, 3:52 p.m.

Delicious!


Julia - Dec. 1, 2023, 5:23 p.m.

I see how most of the comments here appeared after the video went live hahaha I am one of those people who were inspired by the "cinematic vision" and gave this recipe a try. Highly recommend, absolutely fantastic and easier than it looks! Thank you PUL!

PUL Team - Dec. 2, 2023, 3:13 a.m.

Hehe we're honoured that the cinematic vision was successful 😅 so happy that the recipe was enjoyed and thanks for taking the time to share the review, Julia!


Mihaela - Dec. 1, 2023, 4:57 p.m.

I love this recipe. So delicious ☀️


Andrés - Dec. 1, 2023, 2:17 p.m.

I didn't know this recipe and oh boy what a discovery. I made a few servings for myself but people literally stole my food!!

PUL Team - Dec. 2, 2023, 3:09 a.m.

Oh goodness, we're so happy that the Palak Tofu was enjoyed, Andrés! Sounds like more servings will be needed next time 😜


Kate - Dec. 1, 2023, 3:27 a.m.

So delicious! We’ve attempted many different recipes for palak, and this is our favorite. It is really similar to the dish from our favorite Indian restaurant that we no longer live near. Thank you for this easy recipe!

PUL Team - Dec. 1, 2023, 9:22 p.m.

Oh this is such a big compliment, Kate, thank you! Thank you for the heartwarming review 🥰


Janette - Nov. 30, 2023, 10:15 p.m.

Yummy and so creamy!


Shuchita Tripathi - Nov. 30, 2023, 10:05 p.m.

Do you have any substitute for coconut milk?
I do not usually like the taste of coconut and I see it being used in a lot of recipes.

PUL Team - Dec. 1, 2023, 1:36 a.m.

Hey Shuchita, light coconut milk is more watered down so it's one alternative that offers a more subtle coconut flavour. We haven't tested these out, but possible substitutes could also be soy creamer, oat milk, or cashew cream (soaked cashews pulverized). You could also use a general unsweetened plant-milk for a less creamy curry. We hope you enjoy the Palak Tofu if you're able to give it a try 🤗


nuria - Nov. 30, 2023, 9:33 p.m.

So nice and tasty ! Really cozy and creamy . Absolutely loved it


Pauline Parinet - Nov. 30, 2023, 1:46 p.m.

It was so heart warming ♡ I loved this recipe ! I dont have a mixer so I kept the spinach as it is and was good too :) the taste is fabulous thanks for this awesome creation !

PUL Team - Dec. 1, 2023, 12:48 a.m.

Yay we're so happy that the palak tofu was enjoyed, Pauline, thank you! 🥰


Anna - Nov. 28, 2023, 9:16 p.m.
