I have time and time again written about the goodness of tofu. It is bean curd and is low on fat and calorie content making it very healthy. You can use paneer (indian fresh home made cheese) as a substitute for most tofu recipes. I literally made this recipe in less than 10 minutes. Its delicious and can be eaten as a main dish with steamed rice or as a side dish.
I also have the recipe on how to make home made tofu with a video tutorial
250 grams of firm tofu , cubed ( i wrap my tofu in a kitchen towel overnight to remove all its moisture so that it does not break while cooking)
1/2 cup of diced white onion
1/2 cup of diced green or red capsicum or a bit of both
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
2 tablespoons of soya sauce
1/4 cup of tomato paste
1/4 cup of chilli garlic paste ( i used THIS)
a splash of hot sauce (if you like it spicy)
In a good quality non stick pan ( i used my ceramic pan) heat the oil and brown the tofu cubes . While the tofu is browning
mix the sauces together. Once the tofu is browned add the onions and capsicum and toss for a half a minute and then add the sauces and cook till the tofu and veggies are well coated with the sauce. If you like you can add a bit of water and boil it. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve hot with steamed white rice.
NITU DIDI TIP:
You can also add chopped spring onions and green chillies to this recipe at the end.
