Tofu Masala
I can’t have enough of this crumbled tofu goodness. When properly seasoned and spiced up, tofu totally transforms from bland to glorious. A good example is this recipe. I thoroughly enjoyed the deep heat and felt the nourishment seeping into my body.

  1. Hi Maya,

    Just wondering… When you say tomato paste, do you mean tomato pasata sauce that’s usually bottled, or the more paste-like tomato concentrate that’s usually in a jar? Sorry – I know they are called different things in different countries and it makes quite a difference in taste and texture!

    Thanks heaps!
