Summary

To many people, Tofu is bland and  the texture is different .  I personally did not care for Tofu as much earlier but knowing that Tofu is  a great source of Protein, I tried different  ways to make  it tasty. I tried making it with Satay sauce, hot sauce, and mixing many spiced to create a tasty dish and I think this recipe  so far was the winner.

I bought the Extra Firm Tofu in the Tub. drained it and and cut it into small strips about half an inch thick.

Made green Masala – you can also use the green Chutney and Coconut or left over Coconut Chutney.

This dish can be a snack or part of a meal. You may have to try it a couple of times before you have an idea how much of Chutney-paste you like to add to Tofu,
