Okay, now this is getting wild! When did we start talking about animals on this blog? Well, not yet, because this recipe is absolutely vegan! Surprised? Hear me out. During our recent grocery explorations, We found this funky fungus called the ‘Seafood’ mushroom. Intrigued by this wickedness, we had to try it out in our dishes. And that is how this incredible recipe was born. Deliciously inspired by South Indian cuisine, this creamy, dreamy curry has coconut to give a subtle sweetness, red onion and turmeric for that savoury taste, and black pepper and paprika for that mild spice. The fish-like texture comes from the sunseed tempeh, which has a soft flakiness when cooked right. We used seafood mushrooms to add the aroma and flavours of seafood; isn’t that cool?! Let’s see how to make this crazy curry.


1 pack GC Sunseed Tempeh

4 Tbsp Coconut oil

1/2 Red Onion (diced)

Seafood Mushroom

1 C Tomato Purée

1 C Coconut milk

2 tsp Turmeric

1 Tbsp Paprika

2 tsp Cumin seeds

1 tsp Black Pepper (ground)

1 C Quinoa


  1. Heat coconut oil in a heavy bottom pot.
  2. Sauté the diced onions until aromatic and translucent.
  3. Add the spices and sauté for a minute.
  4. Add the chopped seafood mushrooms and cook until soft.
  5. Add the tomato purée to the pot and simmer for 10 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, in a separate skillet, fry the tempeh pieces on both sides until crispy. If it gets too dry and sticks to the bottom, splash water and close it with a lid.
  7. Pour the coconut milk into the curry mixture and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes.
  8. When the coconut curry simmers, gently add the tempeh pieces and stir it well. 
  9. Close the pot’s lid and cook on low heat for 10 minutes.
  10. Switch off the heat and let it sit for 10 more minutes for the flavours to soak into the tempeh.
  11. Cook some quinoa on the side and serve hot.
