Tandoori Tofu

Tandoori Tofu can easily be made home using a nonstick pan/tawa. This is how I make it -

Tandoori Tofu
1 Block Extra-Firm Tofu, Cut into triangles [I used Whole Foods Organic brand]
2 tbsp Tandoori Chicken Masala
1 tbsp oil
Freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/8 tsp ajwain/owa/ajmo
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
*Salt (check if Tandoori Masala and add only if needed)
Chaat Masala
1 tbsp minced cilantro
1 tsp minced mint
Lemon wedges if needed
1. Whisk all the ingredients for the marinade.
2. Place the marinade in a pie plate. Place tofu pieces in a single layer. Let it marinate for 1/2 hour. Flip and let it marinate for at least 1/2 hour more.
3. Heat a nonstick pan. Using an oil spray, grease the pan.
4. Place tofu pieces on tawa, shaking off excess marinade.
5. Let it cook on a moderate heat. Flip and cook on both the sides so the tofu pieces are evenly browned.
6. Garnish with chaat masala and chopped cilantro & mint.
7. Serve with lemon wedges.
Note -
1. You can use a nonstick tawa/pan with grilled marks to make Tandoori Tofu
2. You can use more(or less) Tandoori Masala based on your preference.
3. Please check for the salt content in the Tandoori Masala and adjust salt as needed.
