Equipment

  • A large pan

Ingredients

  • 12 oz silken tofu equals 300g (1 block of tofu)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp paprika powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast optional
  • 1 sprinkle black salt optional

Instructions

  • Cut tofu into cubes or crumble it up in your hands. 
  • Add tofu to a hot (preferably non-stick) pan. No need to use oil, but feel free to do so.
  • Keep the pan on medium-high heat. Stir the tofu and add all the seasoning (garlic powder, black pepper, turmeric, paprika, sea salt, nutritional yeast) - leave black salt until the end!
  • Keep frying gently until all the small pools of liquid are gone. There should be no visible liquid in the end.
  • Once the tofu is slightly crispy on the outside, remove from heat.
  • Sprinkle with black salt before serving.

Notes

  • Cut your tofu into larger pieces or crumble it in your hands - this is entirely up to you depending on whether you want larger chunks or small bits. 
  • Tip 1 - When frying tofu, make sure NO pools of liquid remain. You want all the liquid to evaporate.
  • Tip 2- If you're not using a non-stick pan I recommend adding ½ tbsp of oil before adding tofu.
  • Tip 3 - Turmeric can have a slightly bitter aftertaste - if you're not a fan, use less or avoid altogether.
  • Adjust - Don’t forget to adjust other seasoning to taste too - especially the salt levels.
  • To serve - Sprinkle black salt on top of your tofu at the very end, straight before serving. Cooking black salt can reduce its flavour
