Tofu Paratha

Tofu is made of Soya and  is rich in both high quality protein and B-vitamins. Tofu is, therefore, an excellent substitute for meat in many vegetarian recipes. It looks exactly like Paneer(Indian cheese) but raw tofu is almost tasteless.. unlike Paneer. Adding this to Curries, Parathas would do justice to Tofu's taste. I have tried this Paratha recently and felt this is the best way to take Tofu in much quantity. Also can follow the same procedure with Paneer too and I am sure it would taste great. Please check this one.


1 1/2 cup wheat flour
1/2 block Tofu (Mashed with hands)
1 medium size Onion
1/2 cup Tomato puree
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp Red chilli powder
1 tbsp kasoori methi (optional)
Coriander leaves
Pinch of turmeric
Salt to taste
Few drops of lemon


1. Mix wheat flour with water in a bowl and prepare a soft dough. Keep it aside.
2. Heat a pan with little oil, fry chopped onions until transparent. Add mashed Tofu and fry for 5 mints.
3. Add tomato puree, fry for 2-3 min. Add turmeric, kasoori methi, chopped coriander leaves, garam masala, chilli powder, salt and lemon drops. Mix them well and keep aside.
4. Make lemon size balls with a dough, make small rotis, stuff it with the Tofu mixture and press them into parathas.
5. Heat a roti pan, fry parathas both the sides with some oil until golden brown. Serve them hot with any curry.
