Singapore Noodles

This is a veganized, no oil version of the popular dish. For this recipe, I use baked tofu. You can also add seitan meats and sausages.

4 cups of vegetables, cut into bite-sized pieces (I used carrots, broccoli and cabbage)
1/4 cup curry powder (should not contain salt)
4 tablespoons soy sauce, divided
2 tablespoons cilantro
4 cups water
