Spicy Garlic Tofu in 10 minutes
- Tofu 500 grams (Extra firm) (Chopped to bite size cube pieces)
- Garlic 7-8 cloves (don't peel the skin)
- Ginger 2 inch
- Dry red chillies 8-10
- Salt 1 tsp
- Soy sauce 2 tsp
- Sesame oil 2 tbsp
- Pepper powder (or crushed pepper) 1 tsp
- Chopped green onions- to garnish
Place the chillies, ginger, sesame seeds, salt and garlic (with skin) in a blender and pulse it 3-4 times. It should not be a smooth paste but a coarse paste.
Heat oil in pan in a medium to low heat, add in the spice mix and fry for 30 seconds, then add in the soy sauce, pepper powder and tofu cubes.
Toss it well so that the spices and soy sauce coat the tofu well. Fry it for 2 minutes or so till the tofu turns slightly golden and crispy on the outside.
Garnish with chopped green onions or sesame seeds and serve.
