Chilli Tofu-T&T From Dil Se..

Needless to say about the health benefits of tofu, the famous soya cheese..Its quite a routine for me to get tofu packets whenever i go to nearby Chinese store, this time i was planning to make out something spicy at the same time as a side dish to enjoy along with rice..While going through Divya's space, i got hooked with this chilli tofu which sounds prefect for me to make out immediately with the extra firm tofu i bought...Its really very quick and easy to prepare, i prepared quite like a dry chilli tofu, while Divya went for a gravy like dish..Everyone at home liked this mildly spicy chilli tofu with rice and for dinner along with rotis..Healthy dish to enjoy even as a appetizier,definitely a feast for vegan lovers..I have added more bellpepper cubes and skipped the green chillies which i replaced with chilli sauce in my chilli tofu apart from that i didnt made any changes and followed exactly as like Divya went for this chilli tofu..

Chilli tofu

1cup Tofu cubes
1no Onion (big & cubed)
1tbsp Ginger garlic paste
3tbsp Tomato ketchup
2tbsp Soya sauce
2tbsp Chilli sauce (can decrease if needed)
2nos Green Bellpepper (cubed)
2tbsp Cornflour
Oil
Few Spring Onions (chopped)

Heat few drop of oil, fry the cubed tofu until they turns golden brown on both sides, keep aside...Heat enough oil in a pan, add the cubed onions and ginger garlic paste, saute until the onions turns transculent and the raw smell goes away, now add the cubed bellpeppers saute for few seconds, keep them crunchy..Add immediately the soya sauce, ketchup,chilli sauce and saute for a minute..finally add the tofu cubes, give a stir..make a thin sauce with cornflour and water, cook until the sauce get thickens..

Garnish with chopped spring onions and enjoy with rice, noodles or rotis..
