Stir fry tofu is an easy to make and quick recipe.
  • Tofu – 150 gm
  • Spring onions – 1 cup chopped
  • Garlic grated – 4-5 cloves
  • Broccoli – few florets
  • Carrots – 1 medium chopped
  • Any other vegetables you want to add like zucchini or mushrooms
  • Salt – according to taste
  • Black pepper – ½ tsp
  • Sesame seeds – 1 tsp
  • For sauce -
  • Soya sauce – 1 tbsp
  • Vinegar – ½tbsp
  • Honey – ½ tbsp
  • Red chilli flakes or sauce – according to taste
  1. First of all, I would recommend you to cook tofu in saltwater as I mentioned before if you are using the packet tofu. Wash it, cut into cubes and cook in boiling salt water for 5 minutes. Then, squeeze out any extra water.
  2. Now heat 2 tsp oil in a pan. Add chopped garlic, and once it's cooked, add the vegetables and cook them till done. (lightly sauté them to retain the crunchiness)
  3. Now add tofu and let it for some time. Add salt and pepper to taste and mix it. Keep stirring in between.
  4. You can prepare the sauce by the time tofu is cooking. For that, take a bowl and mix all the sauce ingredients nicely.
  5. Now add this sauce to the tofu and vegetable pan. Mix it nicely and cook for another 2 minutes. Lastly, add 1 tsp of roasted sesame seeds on top.
  6. Serve it hot with your choice of rice or noodles or enjoy it as it is.
You can choose any vegetables of your choice for this dish.

You can use normal onions instead of spring onions.

If you don’t have honey, you can add sugar too.

Avoid using olive oil as it gets burned and might give a bad taste to the dish. I prefer using sesame oil in stir fry dishes.

You can cook the same dish with paneer if you don’t have tofu.
