How to Make Tofu Bhurji

  • Place the grated tofu in a bowl.
  • Add the spices (garam masala, turmeric, ginger-garlic paste and coriander-cumin powder) along with sliced chilli, 1/2 tbsp of olive oil/vegetable oil and cilantro.
  • Use your hands to toss them together until blended. Set aside covered for about 15-20 minutes.
  • In a skillet, add onions with a little salt.
  • The salt will let out some water from the onions, helping it to cook faster especially in the absence of oil. You can add oil too if you want.
  • Add cumin seeds and let it cook for another minute.
  • Add the bell peppers and tomato and cook for another 2 minutes until they get soft.
  • Add the puree and cook until the raw smell of the puree goes away.
  • Add the tofu and stir for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the peas and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Serve warm garnished with cilantro.
