Tofu & Spinach Scramble/Bhurji

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

This might not be a gorgeous looking dish, but the protein packed nutrition in this definitely makes up for its bad looks. I recently discovered, the versatality that tofu has to offer & was amazed to find out that it works as a great substitute for Eggs or even Paneer/ Indian Cottage Cheese.

Tofu & Spinach Scramble


I  made this simple scramble with Tofu  & Spinach. Since Tofu is bland in taste, I used loads of Indian spices for flavour.

You Will Need:
  • 300g Firm Tofu - Drained & Crumbled
  • 4 small bunches of Spinach - Cleaned & Chopped
  • 1 big onion - finely chopped
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 tsp fresh Grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • Salt as per taste
  • 2 tsp cooking oil
How To:
  • In a heavy bottomed pan, heat oil & splutter cumin seeds. Add fresh grated ginger, green chillies & onions. Saute till it turns pink.
  • Add chopped spinach & saute until the leaves are wilted. Add red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder & Garam Masala. Mix well & cook for a minute
  • Mix in Tofu & add salt a sper taste. Cook on low heat for about  mins, stirring in between.
  • Turn off the stove & transfer to a serving bowl.
Serve with some warm Phulkas. Enjoi !!!

NOTE: I don't recommend using Silken Tofu as it turns into a mush when scrambled. I used regular Firm Tofu.
