How to Make Tofu Patia

  • Swaddle tofu in paper napkins or in cheesecloth, place in a colander, and place something heavy on top, like a cast-iron pan.
  • Let the water drain out of the tofu for at least an hour.
  • Now stand the tofu on the side and slice so you have two slices of the same width as the whole block, but only half the thickness.
  • In a baking pan large enough to hold the two slices of tofu side by side, mix oil, turmeric, red chilli powder and salt.
  • Place the tofu in the pan and turn over to coat with the turmeric-chilli-oil mixture.
  • Bake in a 400-degree oven for 30 minutes until slightly chewy on the outside, but creamy on the inside.
  • Meanwhile, in a skillet or saucepan, heat 1/2 tbsp canola or vegetable oil.
  • Add cumin powder, turmeric, coriander powder and stir for a minute and then add onions and saute, until browned.
  • Add coconut milk mixture.
  • Cook on a low flame about 5 minutes.
  • Cut each slice of the baked tofu into four long strips, and then cut each strip into four pieces to get a dice of about 1/2 inch.
  • Add to the saucepan and stir in.
  • Add 3 diced tomatoes, cover, and cook until the tomatoes are fairly soft.
  • Add 1 tbsp jaggery (or sugar) and juice of 1 lemon, salt.
  • Garnish with some chopped mint or coriander.
