Sweet and Sour Tofu


Perfect recipe for Meatless Monday ….Sweet and sour tofu.  You can also add broccoli pieces to this for better taste. As I’m not a broccoli fan so I didn't add.. Goes well with brown rice & stir fried noodles. So here is what I did….





Ingredients:
2 tblsp sesame oil
1tblsp Minced ginger
1tblsp Minced garlic
Minced onion- ½ cup
Sesame Seeds for garnishing

For Sauce
1 tblsp Vinegar
1 1/2 tblsp soya sauce
1 Tbs Ketchup
1/4 Cup Water

2 tsp Sugar & 1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 Tbs Cornstarch + 2 Tbs water

How to proceed:


Wash the tofu & Slice the tofu into small cubes. Keep them on a paper towel.
Heat oil in a pan. Toss the tofu till they turn light brown in colour.
Heat a pan. Add minced onion, ginger garlic. Sauté for a min. 

Mix sauce ingredients in a bowl. Throw in the sauce. Mix well. 

Now mix cornstarch, sugar , honey, salt & water into a small bowl and whisk until sugar and salt is dissolved.
Add cornstarch mixture and whisk until the sauce thickens. If you leave the sauce unattended now it will thicken and burn, so keep an eye on it. When thick, place gently tofu in sauce and toss to completely coat.
Top with sesame seeds and serve immediately.

Note. You can also deep fry the tofu (marinate the tofu pieces with the flour, soy sauce and salt) till they turn golden brown before adding them in the sauce.
