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)

Mattar Tofu


Serves 4

The Ingredients

  • 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


The Directions


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.
