Masala Tofu

Total Time:  15 minutes

Serving Size: 4 people


1 Tub of Firm Tofu

1 Bunch of Spring Onions finely sliced

2 tablespoons of Olive Oil

2 Green Chillies chopped up fine (optional)

2 teaspoons of Cumin Powder (Geera Powder)

1 teaspoon salt ( add to taste)

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic paste

1/4 teaspoon ginger finely sliced

1 teaspoon coriander powder

Handful of chopped  Fresh coriander/Cilantro

1/4 teaspoon Turmeric powder


  1. Cut up the Tofu in small cubes and place in a pot filled with hot water.  This tends to firm up the Tofu even more.  Leave the Tofu in the pot for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the oil in a large skillet and heat the oil.
  3. Add the onions and green chillies and fry for a 1 minute.  Add the garlic and ginger.
  4. Add Tofu and all spices except fresh coriander.  Fry for about 5 minutes on medium high till you see that the water has dried out and the Tofu is cooked.  Don’t stir the Tofu too much because it will break.
  5. Add fresh coriander  to the dish and serve.
