Get your portion of protein with this scrambled tofu peas masala mix. This mix can be made many ways, but we mainly make it by shredding or grating the tofu using the grater.
This masala mix is made with extra firm tofu, that has the exact same texture as cottage cheese or paneer. Shredding tofu on a box grater gives it a fluffy, light texture, and the smaller, shredded pieces readily absorb the flavor from sauted veggies and seasonings.
You can use finely chopped onions if you wish, but I love to use long sliced onions. Cooked on medium high heat, slightly burnt, turned dark brown gives this dish a deep and savory flavor.
This dish can be made with gravy, using lots of tomatoes or drier version like this one, where you do not have to use too many ingredients, and it gets ready in less than 30 minutes.
Whenever we are stuck for what to cook for dinner, this is our go to dish. Try it next time you are stuck for dinner ideas.
