Tofu Matar Masala/ Side Dish with Tofu Peas

Tofu Matar Masala/ 
Side Dish with Tofu Peas
Hi Friends,
Few year back i was not aware about TOFU and its nutritional facts. It started when i decided to shed some weight and heard that soya products are really effective and safe way to do it. I started searching for soya products tried soya milk and it was horrible for me then i tried flavored soya milk and nothing was different. I was bit hesitant to trying TOFU as already tasted soya milk with very bad experience. Then after searching so much on net i came to know that its quite similar to paneer/cottage cheese. 
I tried and liked the taste. Now i make tofu dishes very often. Its full of nutrition and whenever i make it, i feel very satisfied that at least i have taken something healthy. Here i am posting Tofu matar masala which i made to pack my kids tiffin. It took me hardly 20 min to make this dish. Try it guys and add some nutrition to your diet.

  1. You can make tofu without adding matar also or add any of your favorite veggie in it like carrot capsicum cabbage etc.
  2. You can add your favorite spices as per your liking.
  3. Instead of paste you can chop garlic and ginger and use.
