  1. Pour water, 1/2 cup coconut milk, and rice into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tofu and cook until golden-brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. When browned, stir in green beans, curry powder, and 1/4 cup of coconut milk. Simmer until the green beans are tender, then serve over rice.

This is a good base recipe, but I had to make a lot of changes. I doubled it, added 2 tablespoons of sugar to the rice and coconut milk, used a tablespoon of butter, sauteed the tofu with the curry powder, and added garlic, ginger paste, salt and a little sugar to the sauce. I also used light coconut milk, steamed the green beans before adding, and added some baby corn. It turned out to be fantastic. I'm definitely making this again.

I really liked this recipe, but agree it needs salt and a little extra curry powder. I added about a tsp of sugar, raisins, and onions too. When I make it again, I will definitely steam the green beans before I add them to the mixture. They take forever to get tender and the sauce nearly disappears!

This recipe was great once it was tweaked. I was afraid it would be too bland, so I added 1/4 tsp Madras curry powder (in addition to the regular curry powder), 1/4 tsp cumin and 1/4 tsp salt. I also added an extra 1/4 cup coconut milk for more sauce. I will definitely make this again!
