Tofu Scramble

I like scramble eggs very much. We eat that with Chapathi, side dish for sambhar rice or dal rice, or even as breakfast. But as you all know eggs are loaded with cholesterol. So tried the same recipe with added spiciness in Tofu. We liked it very much. Had it with Chapathi for dinner. Hope you will like this too..

You will need:
  • 500 gm Firm Tofu
  • 2 big onions
  • ½ tsp Chicken Masala Powder
  • 1 tsp pepper powder
  • 1 tsp chilli powder or 5 green chillies(finely chopped)
  • ½ tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • ½ tsp mustard seeds
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • salt per taste
  • Few coriander leaves( Chopped finely)

Step 1:

Chop the onions finely and keep it aside.

Step 2:

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and then add the finely chopped onions to it.

Step 3:

Crumble the firm tofu with your hands and keep it aside.

Step 4:

When the onions turn translucent after sauteing it for 3 to 5 mins, add the ginger garlic paste.

Step 5:

Saute the ginger garlic paste for just 2 mins till it get rid of the raw smell. Now add the chicken masala powder, chilli powder and the cumin powder, pepper powder along with scrambled tofu at this stage.

Step 6:

Add salt. Stir it continuously till you get scrambled form. Add chopped coriander leaves. This might take 8 to 10 mins to get this scrambled form.Serve it hot with Chapathi or any of your favorite dishes.
