Tofu Panneer Dry - Starter

Here is some fresh starter for your boring lunch/Dinner. One long exhausting day as I opened the refrigerator and peeped into the dairy section I saw a packet of panneer and a packet of hard tofu. I had about 20 min time to prepare something out of it and so this dish described below evolved.

1, Tofu - 150 gms (cubed into 1" each piece)
2. Panneer - 150 gms (cubed into 1" each piece)
3. Red Chilli powder - 1 tsp
4. Garam Masala - 1 tsp
5. Amchur/Dry Mango Powder - 1/2 tsp
6. Oil - 1 tbsp
7. Tomato sauce - 1 tsp
8. Soya sauce - 1/4 tsp
9. Salt to taste.


1. In a bowl marinate cubed tofu and Panneer with all the spices - Chilli powder, Garam Masala, Mango powder, salt and oil. Keep this aside for 10 min,

2. Heat a heavy bottomed non stick pan and transfer the marinated mix into it.(Low - medium flame). Toss the mix every minute to ensure even cooking on all sides of the cubes. Do not use a spatula as the tender panneer and tofu tend to break.

3. After about 5 min add the sauces - Tomato and soya sauce to coat all the cubes evenly. Keep tossing for another 5 min so that the caramelization of the sauces happen to give you a crisp outer layered cubes.

4. Serve hot with a sprinkle of chat masala(Optional). I actually ran out of chat masala , still the dish was yummy. You can also taste it with mint chutney.
