  • 1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add onion, garlic, ginger, cumin, paprika and chilli powder and cook for 5 minutes, or until onion softens. Add beans, tomatoes, coconut cream and sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes, or until sauce thickens. Stir in lemon juice and season to taste.

  • 2. Meanwhile, cut tofu into eight slices. Heat the remaining oil in a large nonstick frying pan over a high heat. Cook the tofu for 1 minute on each side, or until golden.

  • 3. Serve tofu topped with bean mixture, cashews and green chilli, with rice on the side.

  • Fresh Tip: Using malt vinegar in the marinade helps to tenderise the pork as well as providing a tangy balance to the pineapple.
