TOFU or Bean Curd is a food of Chinese orgin and is made from soy milk. It is low in calories and high in protiens. It looks very similar to paneer. I dont like the taste of tofu as compared to paneer. But considering its health benefits i make this bhurji to incorporate it in our diet. The bhurji tastes similar to egg and paneer bhurji.
Onion - 1 medium, finely chopped
Tomato - 1 small, chopped
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Paprika - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves - for garnish
Oil - 2 tsp
Crumble the tofu and keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan, add chopped onions. Fry till it turns golden then add ginger garlic paste and fry for a min. Add tomatoes and fry till it becomes soft. In the meanwhile add all the masalas and fry. Then add the tofu and salt and mix properly. Check the taste and adjust the spices. Garnish with coriander leaves.
Serve with chapatis/phulkas.
Note : I used medium variety of tofu for this. I think firm can also be used. It was approximately 150 g.
Egg and paneer bhurji can be made on similar lines.
