  • Open and remove the tofu from the packet. You may need only half the amount of tofu to make this dish. So slice it into half.
  • Place the unused portion in a container with a lid and pour cold water to cover the tofu and store it in the refrigerator for later use.
  • Sprinkle some salt on either side of the tofu that you are planning to use now.
  • Heat a tbsp of oil in a non stick frying pan.
  • Place the tofu on it and fry till it becomes golden brown on both sides.
  • Remove the tofu from the pan and slice it into small pieces in whichever way you like it. Keep the fried tofu aside.
  • :- This method of frying and then cutting the tofu is easier than cutting it into small pieces and then frying it. You can do it either way.
  • Wash well the spinach leaves.
  • Cut them into fairly big pieces and keep them aside.
  • Slice the garlic and the chilly pepper into thin slices.
  • Heat a tbsp of oil in a pan.
  • Add garlic and sautT for a minute or so.
  • Add the sliced green chillies and sautT.
  • When it is cooked for a minute, add a pinch of turmeric followed by the chopped spinach.
  • Sprinkle some salt to taste, mix well and cover the pan.
  • Open the lid and stir the contents occasionally, until the spinach is cooked.
