Pan Fried Tofu Bites - A quick and easy starter with Tofu

Hi everyone..hope you all had a great weekend. This weekend i made a simple recipe with tofu. As we all know tofu is a soyabean curd made from soya milk, has low cholesterol and fat content. Since it has a delicate flavor it taste best when you add seasoning or marinades and then cooking them. So i just made a simple starter recipe with tofu. This is very simple and really easy to do also.

Method

  • In a bowl mix all the ingredients expect Tofu and oil.
  • Coat the marinade over tofu slices and keep for 15 to 30 Min's
  • Heat oil in a non stick pan, when hot place the marinated tofu slices and shallow fry on both side still golden brown in color and keep aside.
  • If u have the leftover marinade mixture pour over the same pan(remove any excess oil) and bring it to boil and pour over the tofu and serve.

* It's best to use a non stick pan while frying.
* Instead of pan frying tofu you can either grill, microwave or bake them.
