Tofu Triangles

Check out this easy peasy snack that your family will enjoy.. You could easily sneak in that Tofu your child says "eeww.. what is that? One could easily use all the goodness of paneer in this, but tofu subtracts all the fat....

Now, as how to do it..


Soft Tofu 1/3 of the whole block
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1tbsp tomato ketchup
1/2 onion sliced handfull of peas, corn and any other vegetable you have
salt to tast
Puff pastry sheet 1 ( i had 1 left from the 2 pack)

Squeeze all the water from the tofu by pressinbg and using a paper towe. As I had only soft tofu it kinda of crumbled. I guess firm tofu would be better if you want it to retain that shape.

Put the cumin, coriander and ketchup ina ziplock bag, Add the tofu to the bag and marinate it for about 2 hrs in therefrigerator.
Heat oil ina pan. add the onions and fry. add the vegetables, salt and pepper to taste and cook for a few minutes. add the marinated tofu to this and fry for a few minutes.

add any spice of your choice to kick the taste.

This is how it looks.

Thaw the pastry sheets 30 mins before you start. Pre heat oven to 400F.

Transfer to a working surface and geberously dust it with flour. Cut the sheets along the folds. it becomes three. now cut it lengthwise so you get 9 rectangles.

add the filling to the pastry rectangles and fold them into either rectangles or triangle.
seal the edges with a little water.

Line a baking sheet with foil and use a non stick cooking spray. Arrange your pastry on it and bake till golden brown for about 10 -15 mins.

Transfer to a wire rack so the triangles become nice and flaky all over.

Serve hot with either tomatoketchup or chilli sauce,

Yummo meter is high for this one....
