Tofu Stir fry Vegetables..

This is a chinese dish and its my hubby's favourite and has also become my favourite now...its a very easy dish and can be made in minutes... if u have all the required items....yummy!!
Infact, I learnt to make this from my hubby...he used to make this often when he was in school... its a good choice for all those bachelor girls and boys....so here goes the recipe.

You need :

1 packet extra firm Tofu
1 pack of stir fry vegetables frozen -medium sized pack.(we get this pack here in states..specially to make fry vegetables.... if u want to buy fresh vegetable u can get then assorted too... u will need brocolli, snow peas, carrots, mushrooms, asparagus etc...)

Finely Chopped Garlic - 1tsp (optional)
One onion cut in thin slices
Chinese stir fry sauce - 2 tbsp

Soya Sauce - 2 tsp.

Salt - if needed

Vegetable oil

Firstly.. remove the water from the tofu...make slabs of around 1/2 and inch and then tearthem into croocked pieces with hand.....now shallow fry this tofu until golden brown and keep it aside...

In a wok or a broad saucepan..... put in some oil...and add the garlic.... sautee it a bit...then add the onions....cook till its becomes slightly pinkish... now add all the stir fry vegetables and let it cook....for 5 to 10 mins... u can see that the vegetables have cooked but yet look firm enough....
Now add the soya sauce and mix it well and in the last now add the stir fry sauce and mix it very well... see that the sauce coats very well on the vegatbles... so be generous with the sauce....(u have to make it like a gravy... so that u can eat it with rice...)... let it cook cobvered for 3-5 mins and then remove from gas....

Serve hot with steamed rice..... amazing dinner or lunch recipe....do try it and let me know...
