You’ve probably seen plenty of scrambled tofu recipes out there and maybe tried a few for yourself but never seemed to make it work. Well, this tofu scramble is here to sway you toward the tofu gospel.
The important thing to remember when working with tofu is to drain it first. Tofu comes packed with water to preserve it but that leave to tofu water logged which stops it from absorbing flavour. So, it is important to draw out that liquid. I just wrap it in a clean tea towel and lightly squeeze it get out the water. You can also squish it with a heavy pot or book for about 10 mins and it will improve the end product immeasurably.
Another key ingredient to the scramble is the black salt. I’ve talked about the wonder of black salt before on this blog but it is essentially a Malaysia/Indian salt that smells and tastes of sulphur, much like egg does.Black salt can be found at most Indian spice shops or online. Here’s a link for it on Amazon: Black Salt Powder (Kala Namak) – 200gm
