I have time and time again written about the goodness of tofu and how versatile it is so lets just get down to the recipe today? The combination of eggs with tofu in an omlette is just fantastic. I never thought i would have such a soft melt in the mouth sensation with each bite! For of you who are on a high protein diet this recipe is just for you 🙂 You can use this recipe as a guideline and then make your own changes addding and subtracting ingredients to your own choice.
250 grams of firm tofu, grated
2 large fresh farm eggs
1 onion chopped fine
1 tablespoon ginger ,grated
A few green chillies and curry leaves
1 tomato, chopped fine
1/2 teaspoon each of Nitu Didi turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and garam masala powder
1/2 cup of chopped coriander leaves
Red chilli powder if you want it spicy
2 tablespoons of extra virgin spanish olive oil
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a good quality non stick pan ( i used my ceramic pan) and add the ginger and let it cook for about 15 seconds and then add the chopped onion and curry leaves. Cook till the onions are soft and start changing color. Add the green chillies, tomatoes and the chopped coriander. Cook till the tomatoes are soft and mashed. Add the salt and the spices and cook till the whole mixture gets dry. Add the grated tofu to this and mix well. Taste it and adjust the seasoning acording to your taste. Take off heat and leave it to cool. (This step can be done in advance or even a few days ahead so you can save time)
Once the mixture is cooled add the eggs to it and beat it well.
Heat the other tablespoon of olive oil in the ceramic pan. Add the egg/tofu mixture and cook on medium heat . Let it cook and then with the help of a plate flip it over and let it cook on the other side. You might have to press it with the spatula so that it cooks through.
NITU DIDI TIP:
You can also make this with vegetables such as : grated carrots, cabbage, green peas, mushrooms, etc. Just cook them up with the onions and follow the recipe. Instead of tofu you can use paneer or just make it with the veggies 🙂
