Well I have been missing in action for quite some time ....it was my holiday to Switzerland which was keeping me busy !!!A dream vacation to the most beautiful place..truly heaven on earth!!!Everything and everyplace there was picture perfect that we just could not stop clicking pics...so much so that our camera has close to 1000 pictures ....!!!
Here is a one for my blog friends !!!
Coming back to food ...as you know that I have been experimenting with tofu for sometime ...here is another version of tofu which can be served as an appetizer as well as a side dish .
This dish tastes very similar to Hakka chilli paneer. I lately had this in an Indian restaurant here in London called Roti Chai .If you are looking for authentic Indian street food you must go there..Will be sharing the reviews very soon !!!
But for now here' s the recipe for hot and spicy tofu fry !!!It does takes tofu to a new level and I bet you'll start relishing tofu from now on....as it is not the same bland tofu anymore !!!
150 gm Tofu (cubed)
1/4 cup cubed bell pepper
1 large onion (cubed)
1 small carrot (chopped)
2 spring onions (chopped)
2 tsp ginger garlic and green chilli paste
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 tsp tomato paste ketchup
1/3 tsp sugar1 tbsp cornflour + 3tbsp water
Salt to taste
3 tbsp flour
2 tbsp corn flour / corn starch
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 tsp minced garlic
A pinch of salt
Make a thick paste with the ingredients for marinade. Marinate the tofu pieces for about 10 minutes.
Add oil in a pan and shallow fry the tofu pieces, turning them over when the cooked sides are brown.
In the same pan, add chopped onions, green chillies, carrot and capsicum. Cook until the onions turn transparent for 2-3 mins. Next, turn the flame to high and add soya sauce, green chilli ginger garlic paste, sugar and tomato sauce. Stir-fry until well blended and turn the flame to medium-low. Add the fried tofu cubes and the cornflour-water paste. Taste and adjust salt. Stir and cook for another 3-4 mins until the sauce comes around and thickens due to the cornflour.
Serve hot with noodles or rice and say yes to healthy TOFU !!!!
