Tofu is a great substitute for Paneer and is power packed. It is made from the milk extracted from soy beans. I have prepared tofu at home. But as it is a lengthy process, I usually buy a pack of tofu whenever I visit the super market. I got bored of preparing butter masala with tofu. So when I bought this pack, I was thinking of a recipe which could go very well with dosa and finally ended planning this kurma. Thakkali kurma is my hubby’s fav combination for dosas and I added tofu pieces to make it more tasty. But I didn’t tell this to my daughter. She thought it was paneer and enjoyed it. Why spoil the scene by telling her that it was tofu?
