Am back from vacation friends and enjoyed thoroughly with my family...Its bit hard for me to come back home after having a great time there...I was bit lazy to blog and cook after having 15days of full rest..But my passion for blogging pulled me to post this easy breezy tandoori tofu,i prepared sterday with extra firm tofu chunks marinated with a home made tandoori paste and turned them super delicious by using microwave oven cooking..It took just 15minutes to get ready and we enjoyed having this delicious and spicy tandoori tofu after a long..This spicy tandoori tofu suits prefectly for a party menu, as an appetizier or either as a snack..Sending this spicy tandoori tofu bites to Global Kadai - Tofu guest hosted by Jaya Wagle, event started by Cilantro and Srivalli's MEC-Potluck Party365Days of Cooking..
