Tofu Akuri (Scrambled Tofu)


  • 300 g firm tofu
  • 1 medium-sized onion, finely chopped
  • 2 medium-sized tomatoes, finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp turmeric (haldi) powder
  • ½ tsp unrefined salt
  • 2-3 finely chopped green chillies
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander leaves, for the garnish


Crumble the tofu and keep aside. Heat a heavy-bottomed stainless-steel pan. Add half the salt to the onion and dry roast in the pan, until light golden in colour, adding a little water, a teaspoon at a time, if sticking to the bottom of the pan. Add tomatoes and continue to roast on medium heat, for about 2 minutes. Add turmeric powder, the remaining salt and green chillies and cook for 2-3 minutes. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve warm.


Add chopped mushrooms, zucchini, any coloured bell pepper or any other vegetable of your choice.

Replace coriander leaves with parsley for a more western flavour.
