tofu scramble in pita pockets



this is a quick breakfast if you have ready pita bread in your fridge...i usually make a large batch and keep in the fridge for 3-4 days...whole wheat pita pockets........it makes the breakfast easier in the mad mornings.....:D.

the tofu scramble is simple and quick,with this home made tofu, it is healthy for sure and you can make it hot and spicy.......or hot and sour ...as you wish in the morning........

we guzzle down a few large mugs full of green tea in the morning ......and that is the only relaxed time....almost forcibly squeezed out time...........to rustle up the breakfast fast ...really fast has become a habit.......though i feel lazy sometimes..........recipes like this help me a lot and i keep experimenting......

to stuff four halves of pita, to serve two, you need around 3/4 cup of cubed tofu , a large onion chopped roughly , green chillies chopped as much you like ,a large red tomato chopped roughly, a tbsp of black pepper powder and salt to taste and a tsp of ghee........


to make the preparation really quick i heat the ghee in pan and without waiting it to heat properly , dunk in the green chillies, onions and salt ....mix and cover on low flame ......................

meanwhile, cut the pita into half , induce pockets into it and microwave to warm them........

till now the onions get almost caramelized ( gives a nice flavor to it)....so now dunk in the tofu and tomatoes and stir till the tomatoes are mushy ..sprinkle black pepper and mix well...........it is very simple and a dash of chopped green coriander is a very good addition but in the mornings i keep the chopping minimal..........

divide mixture into four portions and fill into the pita pockets.......we eat this with some more green tea or sometimes darjeeling tea..........



isn't that yummm......

the tofu and spinach scramble also is a yummy filling to these pita pockets , i make it that way whenever there is leftover paalak tofu bhurji in the fridge........but ideal combo of paalak tofu is thin fluffy chapaatis....

  2. Sangeeta, this is sure an interesting recipe, will try to substitute with Panner and try. You make your own Pita breads, i still haven't ventured on Pita baking. You are inspiring me to bake some.

  14. I make a similar tofu scramble for my husband who is a vegetarian. To imitate eggs, I add a little turmeric powder for color and flavor
