Well when I came to London I remember our first outing was to the supermarket....as that's the first step one takes to set up a household and it was a completely different experience from the Indian ones...it was like it could take a whole day to stroll around and shop...yes this is how big some of the supermarkets are..!!
So this weekend was one of the days when we went for that kind of shopping(yes we really enjoy it unlike the boring online shopping) and there you look for ingredients which you usually don't find in neighbourhood stores..TOFU was one such item on my list and yes I found it !!
And so I could not restrain myself from trying a tofu dish and went ahead and cooked chilli tofu.
We also baked chocolate chip muffins..Post dinner we were craving for something sweet so we baked these super quick muffins and it was so much fun...I just love cooking with hubby ...!!
|Our weekend dessert|
Coming to the point lemme share with you the recipe of chilli tofu:
2 spring onions
1 Onion Sliced
3 tbsp soya sauce
2 tbsp chilli garlic sauce
1/2 cup Veg stock
1/4 cup Mixed bell peppers
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp cornflour mixed in 2 tbsp water
1/4 tsp pepper
Salt to taste
Cut tofu into small pieces and shallow fry till light golden.Marinate the fried tofu into a mix of 2 tbsp soya sauce, 1/4 tsp pepper and 1tsp ginger garlic paste for 20 minutes.You will surprised to see how tofu soaks up the soya sauce.
In a pan saute some garlic and spring onion whites and onion.Add bell peppers ,soya sauce,chilli garlic sauce(I used maggi chilli garlic sauce).Add salt, pepper and veg stock.Let it boil and add cornflour. Mix lightly till the mixture thickens.
Turn off the heat,garnish with spring onions and serve it with rice/ noodles.
