Don't like tofu? Here is a trick to mask the taste of tofu from your palette, a flavorful dish, which by taste you cannot tell it has tofu!
Yeah Yeah…I know tofu is healthy!
I have worked hard to get myself to like tofu! At every chance I have substituted tofu for Paneer but it never tasted the same! The farthest I could go with getting myself to eat tofu is pan-frying it in oil! Then talk about healthy?
With many unsuccessful attempts, I realized the only way out is to mask the taste of tofu from my palette! So, here’s the recipe to trick yourself into eating tofu with this great tasting dish. You can eat this healthy, warm and easy tofu egg scramble by the bowlful!
I felt it is easier to infuse flavors into tofu when scrambled than cubed pieces. I camouflage the bland taste of tofu by cooking it with onions and tomatoes flavored with medley of masalas. To enhance the taste and texture, I add egg and scramble it together. This creates a flavorful dish, which by the taste you cannot tell it has tofu!
