I have to admit that I'm not too fond of Tofu. My Mom always tried to get good healthy stuff into our diets and Tofu was one of them. Though she tried her best to secrectly slip Tofu into the many wonderful things that she made, I always caught her. But this was one recipe however that I absolutely loved. I think its the crispiness of the Tofu with the spiciness of the sauce that catches my attention everytime.
Try it, and I'll bet you'll get hooked to it!
2 cups of cubed Tofu
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp ground peanuts
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp freshly ground chili paste
1 tsp finely chopped ginger
1 tbsp chopped green onion
Salt, to taste
Heat oil in a pan and fry tofu till it gets golden brown. Remove from heat and keep aside.
Heat some more oil and add ginger. Sauté for a minute and add tomato paste, lemon juice, chili paste, salt and peanuts.
Cook till sauce is thoroughly mixed through and then add the fried pieces of tofu. Cover cook for 5 minutes till tofu absorbs the flavour of the sauce.
Garnish with chopped green onion and serve hot.
Serve with plain boiled rice and cucumber slices.
