bhurji in the North of India is something scrambled and stirfried , usually making a combination with parathas or chapatis....can be a good stuffing in a grilled sandwich or inside a pita pocket..........we had it for dinner with chapatis.......tofu is the best soy product i like.....i make the soy milk myself following this recipe........ the bean curd and tofu too and keep using these in my cooking........have already posted dahi aalu in the past and there are many tofu and beancurd recipes in my drafts..........i'll post all of them now as i noticed it now that i have been partial with it......this palak tofu bhurji is regular in my kitchen for two basic reasons....it is quick to make and it is tasty.......moist and spicy with plain chapatis........good choice for a low cal meal.......


the recipe is simple..........you just need a few simple ingredients........

tofu cubed 1 cup
spinach blanched 1 cup
green chillies chopped finely 2 tbsp
ginger garlic paste 1 tbsp
coriander, cumin and black pepper powders 1 tsp each
salt to taste
chopped tomatoes 1/2 cup
thinly sliced onions 1/4 cup
ghee 1 tsp
cumin seeds 1tsp

to proceed .......heat ghee in a pan or kadai like the picture.....throw in the cumin seeds and let them crackle.......throw in the green chillies and onions......fry a bit till lightly browned on low heat as you are using very little ghee..add salt to make it quicker.......now the masala powders, ginger garlic paste and the chopped blanched spinach in that order.......keep stirring for 2-3 minutes........tomatoes and tofu goes in together......stir for a while till the mixture is almost dry and mushy.......extra black pepper can be added for extra kick........i do it that way.....serve hot with chapatis....
