I have been making Tofu Burji for a while now and it just crossed my mind that I had not posted it here. Over the past few months, I have altered the recipe many times to suit my family's moods and tastes and I have finally settled down to a fast and easy version. My family has gotten addicted to the taste of Tomato Chilli Sauce and of late I have been using that a lot in my cooking.
So as part of Day 3 , Week 1 , BM #25, here is a family favorite. Sometimes as a wrap with Chapati, sometimes in rice and sometimes just as is as a snack - that is how my family enjoys this..
Tofu 1 pack (I used the extra firm variety)
Onions chopped 1/2 cup
Tomato Chilli Sauce 1 Tbsp
Ginger Garlic Paste 1 tsp (Optional - I didn't use)
Salt as needed
Turmeric as needed
Red Chilli Powder as needed
Chaat Masala Powder as needed
Seasoning ( Oil 1 Tbsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp)
Method Of Preparation -
In a heated pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning. After the dals and cumin seeds are brown, saute the onions until they are translucent.
Add in the crumbled tofu, tomato chilli sauce, salt, turmeric, red chilli powder and mix them while continuously crumbling the tofu and incorporating these flavors into it.
After the raw smell of tofu gives way to a distinct aroma, remove from heat and serve as per your preference.
Roll them Roti/Paratha or serve it with steaming hot rice. I packed this with Brown Basmati Rice for my older one !
