Tofu Masala Curry

This was my today's breakfast.Two pulkas,2 tomato slices with Tofu curry.Sounds healthy! Yeah :-) It is said that, always breakfast should be heavier than lunch and dinner.Lunch should be more than dinner in amount and dinner should be less or lighter than previous two.Always the breakfast should contain more carbohydrates to give a good kick for rest of the day.Breakfast like chapathis,parotha,idli or fruits always preferable.Here I gave chinese touch to the indian tofu curry, which can go well with chapathis and rice.Here comes the recipe.

1 lb firm tofu (sliced into small cubes)
3 meduim sized tomatoes (cut into long thin slices)
1 meduim size onion (cut into long thin slices)
1 capsicum (cut into thin slices)
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
2 to 3 green chillies (slit into long)
2 tsp red chilli powder (can decrease as per spice required)
1/4 tsp soya sauce
1 to 2 tsp corn flour
1 cup water
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 to 3 tsp oil
Salt as per required
1/2 cup coriander leaves

  1. Heat oil in a pan add cumin seeds.Once they start spluttering add onions and fry till light brown.Before onions starts turning light brown add tofu and fry for till they also turn light brown on all sides.Then add capsicum and fry They should be little crunchy.
  2. Now add all masalas one after the other.Ginger garlic paste,turmeric powder,red chilli powder,coriander powder,garam masala powder and salt.
  3. Mix well all the ingredients and allow to cook to medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Then add tomotoes and 1 cup of water, soysauce and mix well.Allow to cook on med heat untill tomatoes become soft.
  5. Now to make gravy thick add corn flour as required i.e., 1 or 2 tsp.Not more than that. Because the flavour changes.
  6. Finally add coriander and mix well and remove from the heat.
Note: Spices can vary , more or less a/c to your choice. Tofu is good for health if they are cooked as it is with out deep frying also taste good too.
