Spicy Tofu masala and Tofu Spring rolls

>> Wednesday, August 11, 2010

This simple tofu masala cooks in few minutes and is great to be enjoyed with chapathi, bread or rice. This masala  also serves as great stuffing for spring rolls, bondas or even dumplings. I made tofu spring rolls using this masala. It tasted great. My hubby really liked it and said that it was almost like egg poriyal or scrambled egg.

Things needed
Tofu - 1 Pac ( I used extra firm tofu. But any kind would do for this dish)
Capsicum - 1 no. medium sized ( Finely chopped)
Carrot - 1 no. medium sized ( Finely chopped)
Onion - 1 no. medium sized ( Finely chopped)
Red chilly powder - 1 Tsp
Garam masala powder - 1 Tsp
Coriander-cumin powder - 1 Tsp
Cumin seeds/ Jeera - 1/2 Tsp
Coriander leaves - For garnishing
Salt - To taste
Oil - 1 Tsp
Lime juice - 1/2 Tsp

Remove the tofu from its packing and roll it in a kitchen towel tightly and let it stand for at least 30 minutes. This will help to drain all the water from tofu. Squeeze the excess water out of tofu by pressing it between your palms. Now scramble the tofu into small pieces.

Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds and let it sizzle. Add onions, capsicum, carrot and fry it for 5 minutes or until the veggies are partly cooked and still retaining their crunchiness. Now add the scrambled tofu, chilly powder, coriander powder, garam masala and cook the mixture closed for 10 minutes. Finish off with lime juice and coriander leaves.
Hot and spicy tofu masala is ready to be enjoyed.
To make tofu spring rolls:
Tofu masala
Dumpling wrappers - 2 nos. ( I used store bought wrappers and thawed them as per instructions before use)
Oil - For deep frying

Place a Tbsp of prepared tofu masala into the wrapper and roll it into cylindrical shapes resembling spring rolls. Seal the edges with water or oil. Deep the spring rolls on medium heat for golden brown and serve hot with ketchup.

The tofu masala goes to Cilantro's  Indianised Tofu event guest hosted by Jaya.
