Tofu Masala – from edible garden

I am not too fond of tofu/bean curd , but I try to include it in my diet as it is considered to be a healthy soya product. I once made a spicy curry with it and it was just ok. Then I found out that it could be used a substitute for paneer. So I made Palak tofu once and that tasted really good. Then recently I came across paneer butter masala recipe– restaurant style in Edible garden where Nags had substituted paneer with tofu and I thought it was an excellent idea. I tried her recipe with some really minor changes and it tasted awesome. Thanks for the recipe Nags!!
