Tofu Oats Toast

I read an article on "Tofu" recently.It has low GI and adds lesser calorific value - which means it is good for weight loss.It also contains good amount of calcium, iron , amino acids and other micro nutrients.
Even kids allergic to milk and milk products are recommended to go for Soya and its products

Needless to say I got this recipe from a TV show but I altered it

This is done on a Tawa and not deep fried


Ingredients
  • Tofu - 1 packet (200g)
  • Roasted gram flour - 1 cup
  • Rice flour - 1/4 cup
  • Chilly Powder - 2 teaspoons or as needed
  • Salt - 1 teaspoon
  • Lemon juice - 1/2 teaspoon(optional)
  • Chopped coriander leaves - little
  • Crushed oates - as required
  • Oil - for shallow fry
Note: The original recipe uses only Besan Flour.Green chilly paste is used instead of chilly powder.Lemon and coriander were not included






Method
  • Wash the tofu bar in running water once
  • Cut into thin slices / lengthwise
  • Meanwhile mix roasted gram flour, rice flour, chilly powder and salt.Pour water carefully to form a thick batter
  • Add lemon juice if needed.Put chopped coriander leaves and mix well
  • Now dip each and every cut tofu slice in the batter and coat with crushed oats.See the picture below
  • Heat a tawa.Spread one teaspoon of oil in it
  • Carefully toast the coated tofu one by one
  • Make sure it is toasted well on all the sides.The colour will be golden brown
  • Repeat the same process for each and every coated tofu

  • It will be crispy.Serve hot with tomato sauce
