Arbi or colocasia is one of the favourites at my home. But is prepared very rarely as I buy them only during my visits to indian shops.

Spicy Tofu subzi – tofu recipes- Indian style

Tofu or soybeancurd is a highly nutritious food ,rich in protein and a good source of B vitamins, iron and calcium. It is low in saturated fats and contains no cholesterol. I personally did not find it as tasty as paneer,especially the last time when I made minced tofu (similar to paneer bhurji). This time , I fried them and added the required spices. It sure tasted quite good .It makes a good spicy side dish for chapatis.

 

Microwave Paneer subji- quick fix menu- paneer recipes

I wanted to make something really quick and with whatever I had. So for the first time I made subji using microwave. This recipe is adapted from 100%microwave cooking though I made minor changes. It tasted nice. I did not have tomato puree, so used pizza sauce (which contained around 80% tomato puree and spices and herbs). Tomato puree must have tasted better. Serve with chapathi.
