Spinach Tofu fry

Monday, November 16, 2009

I am a big lover of Spinach and my husband is a big lover of Tofu. Mixing of our favorites , gives a delicious and mouth watering spinach tofu dish. Both the ingredients of this dish are high in nutrients making it a healthy dish.
Tofu is made from soy milk where as paneer/Indian cottage cheese is made from milk. Tofu has that purity of soy, low in calories and contains little fat. Tofu is a good substitute for paneer dishes as it marks its own great taste.

Spinach attracts with its rich greenish and eye catching color where as tofu pleases us with its pure white color, making this dish so rich, pure n colorful...
Spinach tofu fry is made in 3 easy steps. Boil it to perfection, Temper it  to bring the authentic Indian taste, Fry it and mix with tofu for the purity of goodness.
