Mattar Tofu: Rich Protein Dish for Vegetarians
Anjali ShahAnjali Shah is a food writer and owner of The Picky Eater, a healthy food and lifestyle blog. Anjali Shah grew up a “whole wheat” girl, but married a “white bread” kind of guy. Hoping to prove that nutritious food could in fact be delicious and desirable, she taught herself how to cook and successfully transformed her husband’s eating habits from a diet of frozen pizzas and Taco Bell to her healthy, yet flavorful recipes made with simple, wholesome ingredients.
Today, she shares a quick to prepare and easy mattar tofu recipe; great for those busy bees who have no time but still want to eat something delicious and healthy.
Mattar Tofu (Paneer)
- 2 cloves garlic – minced
- 1 red onion
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup of frozen peas
- extra firm tofu cut into cubes (you can use as much as you like depending on how chunky you want the curry to be. I used a little more than 1/2 of the block)
- 3/4-1 bottle of Maya Kaimal Madras Curry
Step 1: Saute the garlic and onions with 1 tsp canola oil over medium high heat, until the onions have cooked down and are translucent.
Step 2: Add the tofu, the curry sauce and the peas, stir to combine.
Step 3: Let it all simmer together for about 10-15 minutes, until the Mattar Tofu is cooked through and ready to eat.
