Baked Curry Tofu

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by rsarahl

Tofu is a wonderful food that picks up flavors very well. In this case, the curry sauce is strong and bakes into the tofu which yields not only great flavor but also a nice chewy texture. Serve with sauteed spinach and basmati rice for a balanced meal. Leftovers can be used as sandwich filling with a little chutney.

I halved this recipe and made this as a part of our dinner tonight. I used a block of 250gm tofu(paneer), a little over 1/2 tsp. of curry powder, a little over 1/2 tsp. of fresh lemon juice(instead of lime) and a little over 1 1/2 tbsps. of fresh orange juice. I pre-heated my oven at 220C and then baked this for exactly 25 minutes at 220C. Served these hot, right out of the oven! This is the "BEST" appetiser I've ever eaten! Everyone in my family loved it and nobody could believe that there was not even a pinch of salt in these! Truly good to have at a party. I love your idea of using the leftovers as a sandwich filling with chutney - splendid! Since these are dry, I definitely wouldn't categorise them under "curries". Also, I'd put them as a side dish and not the main course. These are best enjoyed on their own rather than with rice, since these come out dry once baked. Thank You so much for sharing a GREAT and EASY recipe.
