A delicious restaurant quality dish that is as easy to make as it is to eat, this is a simple dish where tofu coated with Oriental sauces and spices is pan fried and cooked.
Tofu is a great vegan ingredient, and non-allergic too. It’s a staple in Thai cuisines, and can be used just as is in a variety of dishes.
Crispy tofu garlic recipes made in minutes is one of the things that I love to serve my guests/clan. Frying, cooking, heating sauces in oil along with tofu fried is a sight that makes you drool for sure.
The luscious combination of tofu sauce is so splendid and tempting that this recipe would stay in your good cook book for eternity, I am telling you! Unlike other foods, tofu doesn’t need much cooking and therefore is an excellent appetizer for parties or gatherings. It can also be served as a part of a bigger Asian meal.
Tofu also called bean curd, is better than cottage cheese in cooking, and is derived from soy milk. It is packed with amino acids, calcium, iron and other micro-nutrients. It is also said, that enjoying soya in the form of tofu is better than the chunks, since the essential nutrients are all retained.
