  2. New subscriber! I am vegan so I eat no dairy or animal products and would like to know if these would work if I made it with tofu. Maybe if I drained it very dry and crumble it? I love your channel, you are lovely and such an amazing cook. I have made your tofu korma and tofu tikka masala. I am interested in all forms of vegetarian Indian food. This recipe also contains no wheat which my family does not eat as well. Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us!
