Methi Tofu/ Tofu Flavoured with Dry Fenugreek Leaves

Found this to be a quickie and understated πŸ™‚ My FIL doesn’t like the slight pungency that tofu has. So I decided to over flavour it with methi. The flavours of fenugreek and black salt brought about a good outcome. Simple and enjoyable! Goes very well with with Indian dinner.

400 gm Tofu – cut into small cubes
2 – 3 tbsp Dry Fenugreek leaves
1/2 tsp Black Salt
1/2 tsp Roasted Cumin Powder (Jeera Powder)
1/2 tsp Coriander powder
1/4 tsp Red Chilli powder
1 tbsp Oil
Salt to taste


  • Heat Oil in a wok. Add Tofu.
  •  Crush dry fenugreek leaves by rubbing them between your palms (to release its aroma) and let the powder fall in the wok. 
  • Add rest of the spices and mix. Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Sprinkle 2 tbsp water on tofu (if it is too dry). Cover and cook for 2 more minutes.
  • Serve hot with chapati.
