Tofu Jalfrezi



Ingredients:
  • 1 cup Tofu cubes (soy cheese) (drained)
  • 1 cup Green Bell Paper (sliced)
  • 1 Tomato (sliced)
  • 1 Onion (sliced)
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp Ginger n Garlic paste
  • 1 tsp Tomato paste
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp Red chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp Kasuri mehti (optional)
  • 3 tsp Oil + pan frying
  • Salt to taste
  • few Coriander leaves
Method: 
        Pan fry the tofu cubes till they turn light brown. Heat the pan with oil, add cumin seed let them splutter. Add onion, ginger n garlic paste, pepper and fry  till they are soft. Add turmeric, red chili powder, kasuri methi and fry for 3-4 minutes.Add tomatoes, tomato paste and cook for few minutes. Add pan fried tofu, salt and little water and cook for 8-10 minutes or till everything cooked well.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with hot roti/ chapati. You can also see the recipe of  Paneer Jalfrezi

Notes:
  • Tofu need to be drained well before pan frying as it contains lot of water.
  • Its very soft in texture so do not flip often while pan frying. On medium heat it might take 8-10 minutes each side to get brwon color.
  • Tofu can crumble if its not handled well. 
Amrakhand recipe goes to Reva's Healing food Mango event started by Siri and guest hosted by Reva.

Looks yummy...try a dash of lemon or vinegar at the end....usually parsi jalfrezis have them and the tang makes them tastier.
