  3. Mash the tofu with a fork and fry in oil for around 8 minutes until it has turned a little color, season with a little grill and pan salt if necessary.
  4. In the meantime, chop the onions, garlic and chili peppers and fry them, adding more oil if necessary.
  5. When the onions have softened a little, mix everything with the tomato paste and then add the can of tomatoes and the tomato puree. I took a small can, if you prefer a large can, you can leave out the tomatoes.
  6. Add the herbs, turmeric and cumin and season to taste with salt and pepper.
