Tofu Masala

I am still not out of my slumber. I have an urge to blog but my laziness is way on top of that. And I still haven't got the hang of my dslr. And thats kinda depressing. Added to the fact that I hate to take pictures with my iphone now that I have a high-end dslr on hand. And then it is the whole story again. That put aside, it was a wonderful day today. The weather was at its best and I stepped out after what seems like decades in my spring clothes. It was rejuvenating. The weather is helping me and rekindling me back to form... Hope I will be on track soon.
Coming to today's recipe its a very simple one which I make often to go with our chapathis.

~*What U Need*~
Extra firm Tofu - 14 oz, drained and cut into cubes
Greek yogurt - 1/2 cup
Onion - 1
Tomatoes - 2
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Bay leaf -1 , clove - 3, cinnamon - 1, cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/8 tsp
Green chilli - 1
Kasuri methi - 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Coriander Leaves - 1 tbsp

How I Made it:
Shallow fry the tofu in a skillet. Set aside. Heat 1 tsp oil in a skillet. Add the onion and fry till transparent. Add ginger garlic paste and fry till the raw smell goes off. Add the tomatoes, green chilli and fry till it forms a masala. Add the spice powders and fry for 3 mins. ONce done cool and grind to a smooth paste. Heat remaining oil. Add bay leaves, cinnamon, cloves, star masala and fry for 1 min. Add cumin seeds and allow to crackle. Add the ground paste and fry for 2-3 mins. Set the heat to low and add the yogurt stirring continuosly. Allow to boil. Add water to bring to the desired consistency. Allow to boil. Add Add Fried tofu and fenugreek leaves and mix well. Let it boil for another 3-5 mins. Remove from flame. Add coriander leaves.

Serve with rotis or rice of choice!!!
