      This is a very good, mild Indian dish. I was attracted to it because it's both vegetarian and relatively healthy, as well as quite simple. Additionally, I found, the flavor is good, if a bit subtle/blander than I'd like. Next time, I would add more Indian spices, but otherwise this is great. I froze the tofu before cooking it, which gave it a meatier texture I love. Thanks for sharing and for the detailed instructions.

      10 stars for being very pretty! 4 stars for great taste. Admittedly I was skeptical at coating the tofu in cornstarch, but it just served to help them develop a chewy crust. I halved the oil to brown the cubes and softened the onion and ginger in water. Served over quinoa cooked w/sweet potatoes and was very tasty. Thanks!
