dahi aalu in bean curd / soy yogurt



I like the slightly beany flavor of soy curd ( soy yogurt ) in salty preparations and i use it in many ways ......i make it at home by adding a curds culture to warm soy milk and letting it ferment in a warm place.........so i get to use the freshest one.

Dahi aalu is a common side dish in north india and many versions of dahi aalu are made , especially for lunch........i make it with soy curd occasionally ......and some people don't even realize that it is bean curd in this dahi aalu.......the tempering and the processing almost masks the beany taste of bean curd in this dish.....


ingredients

beancurd 1 cup
red onion chopped fine 1/2 cup
boiled potatoes , cubed 3/4 cup
whole dry red chilly 2 nos.
cumin seeds 1 tsp
asafoetida , a pinch
curry patta 2 springs
sunflower or soybean oil 1 tsp
salt n pepper to taste

preparation

heat oil in a pan and put in the asafoetida and cumin seeds n let them splutter...now put in the broken red chillies, currypatta and onions and stirfry on medium flame till translucent.....now throw in the potato cubes ant stir fry for 2-3 minutes adding salt n pepper..finally pour in the bean curd and put off the flame immediately........mix well to coat and serve ...


yummmmm.....
