METHOD

1
In a small saucepan with a lid, combine rice, 1 3/4 cups water and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. Place on high heat, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until all liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender, 40-45 minutes.
2
While rice cooks, prepare your mise en place: Cut tofu into 1/2-inch cubes. Trim snap bean tips, and cut beans into 1-inch lengths. Trim radish tops and tips, and quarter radishes lengthwise. Pick and chop parsley leaves.
3
Pat tofu dry on paper towel. Heat a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil. Scatter tofu in a single layer, and cook undisturbed until nicely browned on bottom, about 1 minute. Toss well and cook on the other side until golden, 1-2 minutes more. Toss and cook 1 minute more. Tip out onto a plate, and set aside (reserve pan).
4
In a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring coconut milk to a gentle boil. Adjust heat to maintain a simmer, and cook until thickened and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add curry paste (using the full amount will yield a spicy dish; use half or less if you prefer a milder flavor) and cook, stirring and pressing to dissolve the paste into the coconut milk, about 2 minutes. Add tofu, and cook 2 minutes more, stirring occasionally.
5
Add 1/2 cup water and snap beans, and stir well. Adjust heat to maintain a lively simmer, and cook, stirring now and then, until beans are tender and the sauce is smooth and thickens a little, about 10 minutes.
6
Add 1 packet turbinado sugar and 1/2 packet of tamari, and stir well. Set aside.
7
In skillet used for tofu, heat remaining 1 teaspoon cooking oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Carefully add radishes, and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to become tender and golden brown, 2-3 minutes.
8
Stir in 2 tablespoons water, remaining 1/2 packet tamari, remaining 1 packet sugar and parsley, and toss well. Remove from heat, and taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Serve curry over brown rice with radishes on the side, and enjoy!
