Tofu Curry


Tofu is nothing but paneer/cheese made with soy milk.This acts as a good substitute for paneer.This is popular in Asian cuisine and these days getting familiar in Indian kitchens too!!!.I came across an interesting recipe called egg masala by Ms.Nandini Kini in a Food group,and whose couple of recipes are already posted in this blog earlier.I had some tofu lying and thought to give it out a try.I made slight alterations.Thnx Nandini Kini for this easy recipe.

Ingredients:
Tofu                                               1 packet
Onion(M)chopped                  1 nos
Ginger garlic paste                1/2tsp
Kitchen king masala             1/2tsp
Kasoori methi                          1/2tsp
(dried fenugreek)
salt                                               to taste
Sugar                                         2pinches
Oil                                               1tbsp

Yogurt                                      2tbsp
Red chilli powder                1tsp
Dhania powder                    1tsp
Jeera powder                        1/4tsp
Turmeric powder                1/4tsp
Method:
  • Prepare a paste with the ingredients mentioned.
  • Heat oil in a pan and saute onions to pale and add the ginger garlic paste and saute till onions turn light golden.
  • Add the prepared paste and saute till the rawness fades.
  • Add the tofu,salt to taste,sugar,kasoori methi ,kitchen king masala and water to get a gravy consistency.

Tip:

Store leftover tofu in a box filled with water and refrigerate,change water everyday,this way it can be stored for another one week
