Curried Tofu Bhaji

Curried Tofu Bhaji
Life seems to going in full throttle for me seems like 24 hours a day just don't seem to cut it.Days,weeks and months seems to pass by so fast ,cannot believe its almost end of the year, memory of last year's new year bash still is so fresh. Glad the year is over and looking forward to yet another great year ahead. Well there are still few weeks left for new years resolution but few things that I would stick too would be to be a healthy and a very cautious eater, not only what I eat but giving enough importance to the source of the food, supporting local farmers and to eat organic.

I am super smell conscious person, I think abnormally conscious actually, I like or dislike people by the way they smell strange but true.There is nothing that turns me off like bad smell be it food or people :). Tofu initially fell in the I hate that smelly thing until few of my friends showed me how to camouflage the smell, once I have learnt how to cook and get rid of the smell its been a favorite at home and is cooked frequently.

1 firm tofu cube
1 red onion chopped
1 ripe tomato
1 green chili ( adjust according to taste)
1 tbsp Ginger garlic paste
1-2 tbsp roasted Jeera powder (Cumin powder)
1-2 tbsp Curry powder or any garam masala
Salt according to taste
1-2 tbsp Oil to saute
1/2 tbsp Haldi (Turmeric)
and corriander leaves to garnish.
1.Heat a wok and add oil, when oil gets warm add green chiles, ginger garlic paste,Cumin powder, garam masala powder and turmeric fry till you get a spicy aroma.
2. to the above add finely chopped onion and saute till they turn brown.
3. Add tomatoes finely chopped
4. Add cubed tofu pieces and salt
5. Cook covered for 5 minutes stirring in between.
6. garnish with corriander leaves , lemon juice can be added for additional taste.
Serve hot with rice or roti's ,takes less then 5-10 minutes to make and is packed with protein and best of all it does not smell like tofu.
Hope you give it a try.

Happy Holidays every one !!
