Hara Tofu Bites With Coriander & Mint Stalks

Its has been a long i wanted to make out something with a combination of coriander leaves and mint leaves along with cubed tofus as a simple but spicy fritters as an appetizier..Finally i prepared this easy breezy tofu bites with coriander and mint stalks along with ginger, garlic, green chillies,chaat masala, cumin seeds, yogurt, salt and lemon juice..Wat all u need is to grind a grounded masala with those stalks and spices, in which cubed tofus are marinated for more than two hours or for overnite, i always prefer to prepare my marination always overnite..So that this marinated tofus are ready to get shallow fried or baked the next day, i went for shallow frying coz everyone at home wanted to taste this hara tofu cubes even before frying, so i choosed shallow frying as i wanted them to get ready with less minutes, u can also go for baking by preheating the oven to 350F, bake these cubes for 15-20minutes at 350F..These shallow fried tofu cubes tastes fabulous, spicy and we loved it.
