Vegan Tofu Rogan Josh (Tofu In Chili Yogurt Sauce)

Packed with flavor this vegan Tofu Rogan Josh is a plant-based version of the classic restaurant-style dish. This rich and fragrant kashmiri curry can be ready in just under an hour and is rich in protein. Gluten-free Nutfree, Soyfree option. No onion garlic tomato.

Coming at you with another plant-based version of a classic Indian dish – Kashmiri Rogan Josh. This dish is a popular dish from the state of Kashmir, usually made with some kind of meat. It is often served as a part of wazwan(multi course meal). Rogan josh roughly translates to a fiery hot or fiery looking dish cooked in oil. The color of the dish comes from Kashmiri chilies and ratanjot(alkanet flowers). We use Kashmiri chilies or paprika and some red bell pepper instead.

Depending on the region, Rogan josh can have added onion garlic. The region being in the Himalayan mountain range, means cold winters and limited availability of fresh vegetables. So, many Kashmiri dishes rely on spices for flavor. This recipe just happens to be onion garlic and tomato free. You can add some onion and garlic if you like.

This vegan tofu rogan josh is easy to make and spice level can be adapted to make it suitable for the whole family. Kashmiri chilies are mild but can sometimes be moderately hot.
