Vegan Tofu Butter Masala

Tofu butter masala

Whenever there is any special occasion or some family/friends get together, I prepare Vegan Butter Tofu or Vegan Tofu Butter Masala for the main course. These are classic dishes that everyone loves, plus it’s easy to cook as well. This vegan tofu butter masala is so rich in flavors and creamy that it goes perfectly with naan, plain rice, or even flavored rice like jeera rice. Here is the recipe. Bon Appetite!


  1. 2 tablespoon oil
  2. 1 large finely chopped onion
  3. 2 tsp ginger garlic paste
  4. 2 medium chopped tomatoes
  5. ¼ cup soaked cashews
  6. 1 tablespoon coriander powder 
  7. 2 teaspoons red chili powder
  8. ½ teaspoon turmeric
  9. 2 teaspoon garam masala
  10. 2 tablespoon kasoori methi
  11. 1 teaspoon jaggery
  12. 250g of tofu cut into equal-sized cubes
  13. Chopped coriander leaves for garnish


Heat a tablespoon of oil.

Add the onions and fry for a few mins. Then add ginger garlic paste and saute till it’s golden brown.

Add the tomatoes and the cashews. Cover it with a lid and occasionally stir till the tomatoes soften. 

Add all the spices except garam masala. Cook it for another 5 minutes. Turn off the heat.

Once it comes to room temperature. Add a cup of water and blend it into a smooth paste.

Strain it to get a smooth texture. Add it to the pan with garam masala and saute.

Add the kasoori methi, and sugar and stir well. Add water to adjust the consistency according to your liking. Let it simmer.

Add the cubes of tofu, and salt, bring them back to a boil, and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Turn off the heat.

Garnish with coriander and serve.
