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.
