Masaledaar Tofu Bhurji

Tofu, the wonderful soya cheese is a versatile ingredient, which can be used as a replacer for eggs in bakes, in eggless desserts and also you can cook varieties of Indian style dishes. One among my favourite tofu based dish is tofu parathas, the addition of tofu makes parathas very soft and its our family favourite. Later after making a variety of foods with tofu, i prepared this nutritious,protein rich spicy masaledaar tofu bhurji with this incredible soya cheese.

Actually this dish makes an excellent side dish for rotis, also you can stuff your parathas with this incredible masala tofu bhurji. I crossed this dish from Sanjeev Kapoor's space, immediately i tried my hands with extra firm tofu sitting in my fridge.

300grms Extra firm tofu
2nos Onions (finely chopped)
2nos Tomatoes (finely chopped)
1tbsp Grate ginger
1/2cup Green capsicum (chopped as small cubes)
2nos Green chillies (chopped)
1tsp Cumin seeds
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Red chilly powder
1tbsp Coriander powder
1tsp Cumin powder
2tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)

Drain the water from the tofu and crumble into small pieces.

Heat the oil,let crack the cumin seeds and add the chopped onions,ginger and green chillies cook until the onion turns transculent.

Add the chopped tomatoes,cook until the tomatoes turns mushy.

Dissolve the turmeric powder,cumin powder,coriander powder and red chilly powder in quarter cup of water and add to a pan.

Cook on medium heat.

Finally scrambled tofu,chopped capsicum and salt, mix well and cook in simmer for three minutes, toss frequently to prevent sticking.

Sprinkle the coriander leaves on the top.

Serve with rotis.
