TOFU-MASALA CURRY

Tofu-Masala Curry

Ingredients:
  • Extra firm tofu(cut into cubes of 1inch size)
  • Peas and Carrot - 1 Cup
  • Onion(Finely chopped/ Paste- 1 Big onion)
  • Tomato(paste)- 4-5 Medium
  • Chilli powder- To taste
  • Dhania powder-2 tbsp
  • Ginger-Garlic Paste -1 tbsp
  • Garam Masala-1 tsp
  • Salt
  • Oil-2 tbsp

Tofu: Tofu is made from soy milk and a very good source of protein. It is sold in soft white blocks. There are many varieties of this tofu. Here we are using Extra-Firm tofu for this recipe. We have to remove the water from the tofu before we cook by placing some weight on the tofu and gently pressing it. I generally take some pan filled with water as weight. I place the tofu in a drainer and gently press that with the pan filled with water/ or any weight.

Method:

  • After removing the water from the tofu as mentioned above cut the tofu into small cubes.
  • Then shallow fry the tofu until it turns light brown color and then place the tofu on a paper towel to remove the extra oil.
  • Now take a pan and put some oil in it,now add 1/2 tsp jeera to it,fry for 30 seconds.
  • Now add onion paste(/finely chopped) ,and fry till the raw smell evaporates for a few minutes.
  • Then add ginger garlic paste and fry for 2 minutes,next add tomato paste and again mix and cook  for a few minutes.
  • Add peas and carrot,lastly fried tofu cubes and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Then add corriander powder,chilli powder,garam masala powder, salt and 1/4 cup of water and cook in low flame placing the lid above..
  • It will take upto 10 to 15 minutes to be cooked.
  • After it is cooked switch off the flame and let it remain for 10 minutes to settle.
  • Serve hot  with rotis or rice.
