  • Start by draining and pressing the tofu. Use a lint free kitchen towel and wrap the tofu pressing as much water out of it as possible. Place it on a plate with a heavy pot or pan on top and allow to press for about 45 minutes. ( Alternatively you can refrigerate and press overnight if you want).
  • Use your hands and tear the drained tofu into irregular bite size pieces.
  • Preheat a seasoned cast iron skillet over medium low flame. Saute the onion with a little drop of veggie stock (or a light drizzle of olive oil) until translucent and starts to caramelize. (Omit oil on WFPB & Plantricious diets).
  • Stir in the chili flakes then add the smoked paprika, turmeric, onion and garlic powders and toss to coat taking care not to burn them. Add a pinch of the Kala Namak salt then add the tofu.
  • Use a flat end wooden spoon to break up the tofu into smaller pieces to your liking but try keeping some bigger chunks for a fluffy texture. Stir to coat well all over in the spice mix.
  • Cook for a few minutes until the tofu is warmed through and coated all over with the spices. Taste and adjust seasonings with the Kala Namak salt. If you are after a more intense eggy flavor you might want to add more of the sulphur salt but please don’t over do it.
  • Garnish with scallions or chives and enjoy on toast or next to beans and rice or inside tacos.



To make this recipe WFPB & Plantricious make sure to omit the oil.
