Vegan Masala Scrambled Tofu


I am not a vegan but I love tofu.... Actually me and my hubby...we both love tofu. He is the one who introduced me to tofu.. and I am so glad he did. We love scrambled egg but as we r trying to cut eating egg now....atleast buying them... other than for cakes..(sudden cultural awekening..:P..u see?)So we r trying other options to have the same crumbly texture and taste.

I happen to eat this at a cousins place for breakfast and we instantly fell in love with it. So I tried my hand at it and I can say I was successful..:) I am sending this recipe to the Eat healthy event- Protein Rich hosted and started by Sangeeth.




You need:

Extra Firm Tofu : 1 packet
Green chillies - 3 finely chopped
Ginger-garlic paste - 2tsp
Fresh coriander leaves - 1 cup finely chopped
Onions - 1/2 cup finely chopped
Green bell pepper - 1/2 cup finely chopped
Salt to taste
Corinader -cumin Powder - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Lemon juice - 2 tsp (optional)
Oil - 3 tsp


Method :

Drain water from the packet of tofu. Remove the tofu out and pat it dry with a kitchen towel or paper napkin.Wrap it in a paper napkin and keep it aside.

In a nonstick pan, take some oil and add the green chillies and ginger garlic paste. Saute till the ginger garlic turns light brown. Add onions and saute for 5 mins. Add the spices and the salt. Saute well.
Lastly add the green bell pepper and saute well for 10 mins or until the pepper is cooked well.

In the meantime. Remove the tofu from the napkin and put it in a bowl and mash it with hand. You may even make small cubes of the tofu, lightly mash it with a laddle and add it to the cooked vegetables.Stir fry for 6-7 minutes

Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and lemon juice. Serve along with a slice of garlic bread.



Serve hot as a Breakfast or as a lunch side dish.

Shubha, Tofu scramble is one of my favorites. I have a recipe on my blog with slightly different ingredients. I'll try it your way too. One quick tip: try using silken firm tofu instead of extra firm. The texture is much better and more like that of eggs.
