    Mirj's Note:

    I was first attracted to this recipe because I'm a big Beatles fan, and secondly because it's a good vegan recipe. Pretty easy to make, and delicious!

      Gawsh, we need a 10-star reviewing system! This is a fantastic recipe! The tofu did not taste tofu-ey at all, and my sister thought that I'd used panir! I scaled it to 4 servings, and used 1/4 cup of tomato paste dissolved in 1/3 cup water for the tomato sauce. I used a little less of chili powder since I don't like spicy food. The filling was great even in the plain wheat rotis that we make. Thanks Mirjam, I LOVE this one!

      Ok, I admit, I didn't think this was going to go over big with my family..but they loved it! My 6yr old asked for seconds and that is something. This is my first time making a tofu dish and I will definitely have to experiment more. Thanks!

      This is my first time ever making tofu, to take over to a friend's house, and it was a big hit! I made it exactly as the recipe states, and I could have used a little more heat personally, but it was the right temperature to take to an event where you aren't sure of people's chili tolerance. I'll keep this recipe on-hand even for myself, and that's saying something for a meat-lover!
