Tofu Shrimp Curry

A box of tofu will last only for few days in the refrigerator and I'm under pressure not to repeat the same tofu preparations, so what do you expect out of me??? Adding them to regular curry preparations is what I resort to…. its sooo versatile and adapts well to any dish without spoiling the original flavour. Shrimp curry is one dish which I make at least once a week and adding leftover tofu blocks in the curry helps my family slowly adjust to tofu diet and also incorporate this nutritional powerhouse in a regular meal.
