350 gm firm Tofu
For marinading Tofu:
2 tbsp corn starch
1/2 tsp salt and pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
2 tbsp Soy sauce and 1/4 cup water
2- 4 tbsp oil
1 small green chilli
2 tbsp each Ginger and garlic chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp Red chilli flakes
1 tbsp Soy sauce
2 tbsp vinegar
1 green bell pepper
1 cup water + 1 tbsp corn starch to make gravy
Garnish: green onions chopped
– Cut Tofu into bite size pieces.
– Mix all marinade spices and soak Tofu in the marinade for atleast 10 mins. Longer the better. Tofu can soak in flavour from the spices.
– Next when you are ready to cook, heat oil in a pan and fry tofu until golden brown and set aside.
– In the same wok or another, heat oil and stir in Onions, ginger garlic, green chillies and salt and chilli flakes. Let the onions become translucent. Add in bell peppers, vinegar and soy sauce. Stir fry for few more mins and then add water ( in which we have dissolved corn starch). Allow the water to evaporate. Tofu will become glossy and gravy will thicken up. Garnish with green onions and serve with rice, noodles or quinoa.
