Akuri

I have received some requests for tofu akuri. Here goes. This is actually a Parsi dish made with eggs. But the tofu version tastes really good.

Ingredients
1 packet firm tofu, drained and crumbled
1 onion, chopped fine
1-2 garlic cloves, chopped fine
A small piece ginger, chopped fine
1-2 green chillies, chopped fine
4 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped fine (and separated into two equal portions)
1 tomato, chopped fine
A pinch of turmeric powder
Salt to taste
Method
Drain the tofu on paper towels for 15-20 minutes
Crumble and set aside
Heat a wok on medium flame
Add onion, chillies, ginger, garlic and one portion of the coriander leaves
Sauté till raw smell evaporates and onion is translucent
Add tomato, turmeric powder and salt
Sauté for a few minutes till tomatoes are cooked
Add the crumbled tofu and mix well
Adjust salt
Optionally, add freshly ground pepper
Remove from flame and garnish with the remaining coriander leaves
Serve hot with bread
Enjoy!
