Baked Tofu

I have love and hate relationship with Tofu. Depending upon how tofu has been used my relationship takes shape. I do not like it smooth and bathing in gravies. And like it fried with crispy exterior. I was introduced to tofu after coming to US. Many people use it as a substitute for Paneer. But I definitely do not do that. Till now my favorite tofu dish is at restaurant near by . They call it Deluxe tofu , which in essence is a fried tofu in spicy sweet sauce with veggies.

Now coming on to the topic of post. This is a Indian spicy makeover for bland tofu. While searching for ways to consume tofu I stumbled upon this recipe from Madhuram. It is one of the simplest recipes I have come across with delish results. Tofu has crispy exteriors and spicy tangy zing . I used the recipe as such with only increasing the amount of spices a little bit and baking at 450F.

This would definitely make a great party snack. Easy to assemble and cook in large volume. Do give it a try.
