Forget the takeaway. This is tastier and healthier.

1tsp cumin seeds
1tsp turmeric
1tsp ground ginger
1tsp medium curry powder
3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped finely
2 green chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
8tbsp peanut butter
2tbsp light soy sauce
2tbsp lime juice
400ml can coconut milk

1tbsp olive oil
1 block firm tofu cut into cubes
1 onion, peeled and chopped in large pieces
1 red pepper, chopped into large pieces

Serves 4 

Using a pestle and mortar, grind the cumin seeds, then add the turmeric, curry powder, ginger, garlic and chillies.
Pound all together.
Empty into a bowl and stir in the soy sauce, lime juice and peanut butter. 
Thin out slightly with a little water.
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the tofu, onion and pepper until the tofu is just browned and the onion retains some crunch.
Add the spice mixture and make sure everything is well coated.
Pour in the coconut milk.
Bring to the boil. Then simmer and reduce until the sauce is at the required consistency.
You can even pretend it is delivered to your door.
Perfect served with Egg Fried Brown Rice.
