Tofu tikka masala recipe – Baked tofu recipes

       Tofu has become a favourite at my place after I started using it in Indian recipes just like we use paneer. I make it quite frequently as it is very healthy especially with high protein content. Inspite of all this , it is not as tasty as paneer. So I often marinade with suitable spices.Tofu absorbs the spices very well. I decided to bake  like we often do for paneer tikka. This really tastes delicious and if you are not too fond of tofu, try this recipe. I am sure you will start liking it. It makes a good starter or a snack even for kids. But I even dunks this baked tofu bits in a rich tomato gravy and really goes well with some nans or rotis. This is the best way to have tofu in my opinion.

   I have not really got into cooking anything apart from regular stuff especially after the sweets and savouries of Diwali. But thankfully I have a couple of recipe posts in my drafts , the food I had cooked and photographed couple of weeks or even months ago. The diwali sweets and savouries recipes had to be posted first. So I am not really in a mood to cook anything for the moment. Untill then enjoy this recipes and let me know if you try it out!!

Recipe Notes


                Just for your info, in Singapore, extra firm tofu is available as Tau kwa. I have often been confused about what kind of tofu to buy among a wide range of varieties available. So thought of sharing this.

              You can add curry powder or sambar powder instead of garam masala.

You can also add this baked tofu in onion tomato gravy. It will make a delicious side dish for some rotis.
