Chilli Tofu

I often buy tofu from Chinese store and use it as a substitute in place of paneer.
I used to make Tofu butter Masala. you can check the recipe in this blog too.
My friend shubha gave me this recipe. Thanks a lot SHUBHA. tried out for the first time and it was simply awesome, it tasted similar to my Aloo manchurian. Will soon post that link too in my blog.


  • Firm tofu -1 pack
  • Onion-1
  • Bell Pepper -1
  • SoySauce-2 tsp
  • Chilli garlic sauce- 3 tsp
  • Red chilli powder- 1/2 tspn
  • Tomato sauce or ketchup - 1 tbsp
  • White or black pepper-1 tspn
  • Garlic- 6 flakes- chopped
  • Corn Flour-1tbsp
  • Ginger Garlic Paste-1tsp
  • oil- For frying


  • Cut tofu in to cubes. keep it aside
  • Mix corn flour with ginger garlic paste,salt,pepper and little red chili powder with little water.
  • (should be able to coat the tofu with this batter.So do not make it thin)
  • Add oil in a deep pan. Fry the coated tofu in oil until the coated color become light red in color.. keep aside all the fried tofu cubes.
  • Now add oil in a separate pan.Add chopped garlic, chopped onion and fry until translucent.Add salt while frying

  • Finally add soysauce,chilli sauce,tomato sauce/ketchup....if u want more spice add
