Hot & Spicy Tofu

Tofu is something I have suddenly grown fond of given the fact that it is low on Fat and high on Protein :D It is a Soy product and very good for health. I wanted to make a Chinese Tofu dish hence tried Hot & Spicy Tofu which turned out to be very good. Once you assemble everything this dish hardly takes any time to get ready, a very quick fix indeed.

Here is what I used to make my Hot & Spicy Tofu

Tofu – 200 gms block – cut into 1’ slices like in the picture
Cooking Oil – 2 tbsp
Garlic Cloves – 3 – roughly chopped
Red Onion – 1 medium – thinly Sliced
Red Pepper – 1 medium – chopped
Green Bell Pepper – 1 – medium – chopped
Warm Water – 3 tbsps
Vinegar – 1.5 tbsp
Dark Soy Sauce – 1.5 tbsp
Corn Flour – 1 tsp
Brown Sugar – 1 tsp
Salt to taste

Here is how you make Hot & Spicy Tofu

Heat the Cooking Oil in a Pan

Add the crushed Garlic and Red Onion Slices and fry for 2 minutes

Add the Tofu slices and fry them till golden brown

Add the Red Pepper slices and the Green Bell Pepper and toss them around for 2 minutes on high

In a small bowl add the Corn Flour to 1 tsp of normal water and mix, add the warm water, Vinegar, Dark Soy Sauce, Brown Sugar and Salt to taste and mix

Add this into the Pan and let it simmer for 3-4 minutes or till the sauce thickens or you have the desired consistency in the Sauce, this is a dry preparation

Serve with any Rice or Noodle Dish, I did with some Butter Garlic Rice with scrambled Eggs
