Spicy fried tofu
The Indian holidays are over and before it is time for
Christmas goodies I wanted to get some normal everyday cooking done in the
house. I saw this recipe on a blog called dishes from my kitchen and it was
really appetizing. My whole household being a very big fan of tofu, this tofu
really tickled our taste bud. The actual recipe was made with jalapeno, but
since my kids were eating it, I substituted the jalapenos with bell pepper. The
crunch of the bell pepper alleviated the recipes flavor. If you are not a tofu
fan, you could always make this dish with paneer.
