Spinach Tofu Stir Fry

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Here comes the another combination of tofu with spinach. Tofu is a regular ingredient in my cooking. I use tofu instead of paneer in most of my dishes jus to make it healthy n nutritious. I love paneer more than tofu but as per health consciousness, i use tofu... Tofu is made by extracting the goodness of soy milk..And the other main ingredient of our today's dish is Spinach.. I don't need to mention the benefits of spinach.. 
Spinach tofu stir fry is made without boiling the spinach, so that we can get each n every nutrient that spinach has.. As we all know, boiling vegetables or leafy veggies makes them to loose some of their essential nutrients.. So to retain all the nutrients, i tried this dish without boiling the spinach... 

Spinach: 2 bags of fresh spinach or 3-4 bunches, roughly chopped
Tofu: 1 extra firm, drained n cubed
Onion: 1 small, finely chopped
Ginger: 2 tsp grated
Garlic: 3-4 cloves crushed
Cumin seeds: 1tsp
Turmeric: 1tsp
Red chili Powder: 1tsp
Coriander Powder: 1tsp
Salt: to taste
Oil: 1tbsp

1) In a skillet, heat oil. Add cumin seeds n fry for 30 secs.
2) Add onion n fry for 5 mins.
3) Stir in garlic n turmeric.
4) Add cubed Tofu. Fry for 5 mins or until tofu turns light golden color.
5) Now add spinach little by little n mix well.
6) Cook for 4-5 mins or until spinach wilts..

7) Sprinkle chili , coriander powder n salt.. Mix well.
8) Add crushed garlic n stir. 
9) Cook for 1 more min n switch off.

Enjoy this healthy n tasty spinach tofu stir fry with chapathi or rice.
