I did not follow this recipe exactly (hence the 4-stars), but it was the primary inspiration for last night's dinner, which was awesome. I used a pre-mixed tandoori seasoning package and substituted low-fat cottage cheese for the yogurt and it made for the most delightful meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Combine paprika, 1/2 t salt, cumin, coriander and turmeric in a small bowl.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, lime juice and the spice mixture; cook, until sizzling and fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  4. Slice each tofu block crosswise into 6 slices; pat dry. Use 3 T of the spiced oil to brush both sides of the tofu slices; sprinkle with remaining salt.
  5. Oil the grill rack. Grill the tofu until it is heated through, 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. Combine yogurt with the remaining spiced oil in a small bowl and serve with the tofu.
