  • Acts a a good anti agent. So ladies!! Just go for it
  • Tofu reduces the insulin resistance of blood hence its very good to control type 2 diabetes.

Process to make Fried Rice

  • Cut the tofu into thin strips
  • I will start with marinating tofu strips. Take a bowl and add soya sauce into it
  • Add 1 tbsp of vinegar into it.
  • Add salt to taste
  • Mix it well and pour it over tofu strips in a way that each strip is coated well.
  • Keep it aside for 10 minutes.
  • Now in a pan heat butter. Keep stirring so that butter is not burnt
  • Shallow fry the tofu strips. Do it till tofu is little brown from all the sides and keep it aside.
  • Now heat oil in a pan and saute sliced onion in it
  • Add chopped beans and capsicum and saute it well
  • Add salt to taste
  • Once all the veggies are par cooked, add schezwan sauce. For schezwan sauce recipe CLICK HERE.
  • Most important step 🙂 add boiled / cooked rice into it and mix it really well.
  • At the end add ½ tbsp of soya sauce.
  • Mix it well and cook for another 2-3 minutes on a low flame.
  • Its ready to be served with tofu strips which we have fried earlier. Mix all the strips in rice and enjoy


Tips :

  • I have diluted the schezwan sauce with water so that each grain of rice should be coated well
  • You can use as many vegetables as you like viz. Carrots, peas etc
  • Cottage cheese can also be used in similar way. Only that you need to manage excess water which will come out during shallow frying. Just increase the quantity of butter a little bit.
  • To make it more spicy you can add chopped green chillies too.
  • Also you can garnish it with greens of spring onions.
