Instructions
  1. Cut the tofu in small cubes and marinade them with soya sauce. Keep it aside for around 30 minutes. Tofu is porous and hence will absorb any spice added to it. Then deep fry them . Wash the rice, drain the water and leave it on the sieve for sometime.
  2. In another pan, heat oil and add cumin seeds. Then add the cinnamon and bayleaves. Then goes the garlic ginger and green chilli paste. Add the onions and saute for sometime. Mix in the frozen vegetables and then the rice and stir well. Then add the deep fried tofu. Add salt. Add around 2 cups of water and pressure cook.
  3. Serve hot with raitha .
Recipe Notes

Tofu is rich in protein. It consists of around 42% protein or a half cup serving of firm tofu has 10.1 gms of proteins.

I have another tofu dish called Spicy tofu subzi in one of my old posts.

Spicy tofu subzi and tofu pilaf goes to "protein rich healthy food" a monthly event hosted by Sangeeth.
