I am happy to post my 50th recipe in my blog. Have been blogging for almost 1.5 years now. Had a wonderful time blogging and made new friends here who post yummy recipes in their blog. Maintaining this blog has improved my cooking a lot :). In fact I myself refer my blog contents for any recipe which I would forget :). I would like to thank all my blogger friends who made my blog special and encouraged me. Hopefully will give more dishes from my side.
In the 50th post, again comes my favorite TOFU..This time very different with sweet and sour flavors. Very easy to prepare and tastes great. Original recipe is here. Here goes the recipe.
Chopped tofu cubes - 1.5 cup
Bell pepper(green/red) - 1 cup(chopped lengthwise and thick)
Cabbage - 1 cup (chopped lengthwise and thick)
Oil - 3 tsp
Jeera(cumin seeds) - 1 tsp
For the Sweet and Sour Sauce:
Tamarind paste - 3 tsp
Brown sugar - 1/4 cup
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Red chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as needed
Shredded ginger - 1 tsp
Black pepper - 1/4 tsp
Mix the ingredients listed under sauce and make a thick paste, keep aside.
Heat a pan add oil, fry the tofu until golden brown on both sides. Keep aside.
In the same pan, add jeera, bell pepper fry for a minute. Then add cabbage fry for a minute.
Now add tofu, sauce, mix well and simmer for 3 minutes.
