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.

Add the ginger garlic green chillies paste and then the onion till they turn translucent.Add turmeric powder and salt.Mix in the tomatoes and spinach. Add the fried tofu and mix well.
