Special equipment: a deep fryer

Season the tofu cubes with the all-purpose seasoning.

Add 2 cups oil to a deep fryer and heat to 350 degrees F. Fry the tofu until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes.

In the meantime, on the stovetop, combine the curry powder, ginger, garlic, and 3 tablespoons oil in a pot and cook over low heat until all the ingredients combine together in a paste, 3 to 5 minutes.

Add the fried tofu to the sauteed curry paste. Add the potatoes, onion, scallions, chickpeas, allspice, thyme, and scotch bonnet if using. Stir to combine. Add 2 cups water and simmer until all the ingredients are blended and reduced to a hearty curry stew, about 30 minutes. Serve hot with accompaniments. 

Cook's Note

Use extra-firm tofu. Drain on a paper towel and squeeze out the water. If the tofu chickpea curry is cooked before serving time, turn off the heat and allow the flavors to mix, then reheat before serving.
