Tofu ChickPeas Curry
Most of the the weekdays our dinner would be some type of stuffed paratha.Whenever i do paratha i try to make a curry/subzi that come quick and easy.This one comes into that kind.
Tofu : 1/2 cup
Chickpeas : 1/2 cup(Soak them in water for 6 to 7 hours and pressure cooked)
Tomato : 2 medium
(Cut into half and microwave for 5 mins and cool it grind it into fine paste)
Cashews : 10
(soak in water for 30 mins and grind into smooth paste)
Chilli Powder : 2tsp
Coriander Powder : 1tsp
Garam Masala : 2tsp
Sugar/honey : 2tsp
Salt : as per taste
Kasurimethi : a pinch
Coriander Leaves : for Garnish
Since Tofu is blant, i like to marinate in spices and shallow fry.
Take the tofu and drain the water by closing them in paper towel and putting some weight.
Cut into small cubes and add chilli powder,chat masala and a tsp of oil
Mix well and leave for 15 mins.Fry in a pan with a tsp of oil.
In a kadai,heat a 2tsp of oil and add jeera.
When it crackles,add tomato puree and chilli powder with coriander powder.
Cover and cook till the oil leaves the sides.
Add the cashew paste,kasuri methi,sugar,salt.
Add tofu and chick peas bring to boil.
If the mixture is thick add little water.
Add the coriander leaves and enjoy with roti.
Have a great weekend.
