2.Red Onion 1 medium, chopped
3.Tomato 1 cut into medium sized pieces
4.Red chillies 4-5
5.Oil 3 tsp
6.Salt to taste.




Method:

Cut the tofu into small cubes and shallow fry them till they become crispy outside and keep aside. Fry the onion in the same oil. Meanwhile grind the red chilly and tomato in a blender and add them into the fried onion and cover and cook for few minutes. Finally add the tofu puffs and salt and let the onion coat the tofu thoroughly.

Add a cup of water if needed and let the tofu cook in the mixture for next 5 minutes, in a covered pan. Garnish and serve hot.
