Tofu manchurian (Serves 4)

Tofu manchurian

“Tofu” is definitely the “meat” for vegetarians. Even though a non veg, I prefer tofu to chicken if I am given an option. This is one easy recipe, in which you can give that “Indian twist” by spicing up the bland, tasteless tofu and enjoy with any kind of meal be it rotis or fried rice or plain rice. Enjoy!!!

Firm tofu 12 oz packet, cut to cubes
Yellow/white Onion 1 large, cubed
Green bell pepper 1 no, cubed
Garlic 2 TBSP
Green chilly 3 nos, chopped
Tomato ketch up 2 TBSP
Soya sauce 2 TBSP
Green chilly sauce 1 TBSP
Green onions 2 TBSP, chopped
Pepper powder 1 tsp
Salt as needed
Oil 1 TBSP + more for frying

For the batter

All purpose flour 4 TBSP
Corn flour 2 TBSP
Pepper powder ½ tsp
Red chilly powder ¼ tsp
Salt as needed
Yogurt 2 tsp
Water ¼ cup

Tofu manchurian

Preparation

In a mixing bowl, add all-purpose flour, corn flour, pepper powder, chilly powder, salt and yogurt. Mix well and slowly add water to make a thick batter. Add the cubed tofu and mix well to coat with the batter. Set aside for 15 minutes.

Heat oil for frying. Deep fry the battered tofu and drain excess oil onto a paper towel. Set aside.

Heat 1 TBSP oil in a pan at medium heat. Sauté onions till translucent. Add garlic and green chilly. Sauté for 2 minutes. Next add the green pepper and mix well with onions. Cook this for another 5 more minutes. Add pepper powder, salt, tomato ketch up, soy sauce and green chilly sauce. Mix well and cook until it starts to boil and then add the fried tofu. Incorporate well with the onions and cook for 3-4 more minutes. Switch off stove and garnish with green onions. Serve with rice or rotis….
