There is no need to mention the health benefits of tofu as it is known to everyone....though it has the same texture of paneer we have to shallow fry it nicely before using it in any recipe ... i was a bit lazy yesterday night i wanted something quick to cook and i had some rotis in my fridge so i prepared this chilli tofu and served as a wrap for dinner. It is very filling,tasty and healthy too. I hope u will enjoy it too.
