I always thought making Indian food would be overly complicated. The spices and flavors are so delicious, I assumed it would take hours upon hours to develop the perfect taste. As I have been tackling my stay at home mom role, I have been searching for new recipes that fit into our family budget and are easy to make. Just recently, I made Coconut Tofu Keema that were absolutely delicious and insanely simple. This recipe was adapted from All Recipes.
