Tofu with Peas and Corn


Tofu or soybean curd is an extremely protein and calcium rich ingredient. I had it for the first time about 7-8 years back and though it doesn’t have any specific taste of its own, it did take some getting used to. It is now fairly easily available unlike earlier and I try to include it in my cooking every now and then.

This recipe is an extremely simple and quick recipe.



Ingredients

100 grams tofu,
½ cup boiled corn kernels,
½ to ¾ cup green peas,
1 tbsp oil,
1 tsp garlic paste,
1 tsp chilli powder,
¼ tsp turmeric powder,
1 tsp coriander powder,

Method

Heat oil in a kadhai and add the peas and the boiled corn. Sauté this for about 2-3 minutes.

Add the garlic paste, chilli powder, turmeric powder and coriander powder. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes.

Once a nice aroma emanates add the crumbled tofu and salt. Continue cooking on a low flame. Cook it for at least 7-8 minutes. This can be served with phulkas or rice and dal.
