  • Summary

    This succulent, saucy and spicy dish of Chili Tofu is based off an Indo-Chinese recipe, and flavored with tamari, ginger, garlic, coriander and cumin, making it the perfect blend of these two distinctive cuisines. Serve with rice or lo mein or Mandarin pancakes for a tasty dinner.

    Ingredients

    • 1 14-oz block extra-firm tofu (swaddle in paper towels and place in a colander for 30 minutes with a heavy weight on top, like a saucepan, to press our any water.). Cut the tofu into 1-inch cubes and coat with the marinade (recipe below).
    • 1 large green bell pepper, sliced (you can use other colors, but I just love the flavor of green pepper in this dish)
    • 1 green chili, like serrano, minced
    • 3 tsp canola oil or sesame oil
    • 1 tsp cumin seeds
    • 1 tbsp ground coriander powder
    • 1 tsp ground black pepper
    • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
    • 1 tsp garlic, grated
    • 1 tsp ginger, grated
    • 1 tsp cornflour mixed into 1/4 cup water
    • 1-2 tbsp tamari(can use soy sauce instead)
    • Salt to taste
    • Green, leafy coriander for garnish, about 1/4 cup chopped
    • For the marinade:
    • 1 tsp garlic paste
    • 1 tsp ginger paste
    • 2 tsp cornflour
    • 1 tsp tamari (can use soy sauce instead)
