Tandoori Marinated Tofu

Tofu is one of those mediums that requires a lot of seasoning and flavour. When done right, tofu is delicious and satiating making it a plant-based protein with a meat-like texture. What I love about tofu is its ability to pick up flavours like a sponge. 

With this recipe, I marinate the tofu in a Tandoori yogurt based marinade keeping in line with a tradition. Simply avoid the yogurt and follow the recipe with an oil-based marinade if you want to avoid the dairy.


TANDOORI MARINATED TOFU

1) In a bowl, mix yogurt with ARVINDA'S TANDOORI MASALA and chopped coriander. Add salt to taste. Marinate for at least one hour or overnight in the refrigerator.

2) Heat oil in a skillet or on an indoor grill. Fry marinated tofu until yoghurt is absorbed and golden in colour. Serve on top of a salad or on a bed of rice or grain of your choice.

1 PKG. firm tofu, organic (300g)
1/4 CUP yogurt (optional)
1 TBSP. ARVINDA'S TANDOORI MASALA
