Recently I tried this Tofu burji and it tasted awesome. A vegan option instead of egg burji and paneer burji. Tofu is high in protein, so vegan friends have this wonderful option. Though it doesn’t have the same taste as paneer, I prefer Tofu over paneer because of he health benefits.



Tofu : 1 pack(any kind would work, I used regular Tofu)

Onion : 1/2 of a large

Tomato : 1

Salt : 1 teaspoon

Ginger Garlic Paste : 1/2 teaspoon

Red Chili Powder : 1/2 teaspoon

Cumin Powder : 1/2 teaspoon

Oil : 2 teaspoons

Mustard seed : 1/4 teaspoon

Urad dal : 1/4 teaspoon

Cumin Seeds : 1/4 teaspoon

Curry Leaves : few


  • Drain water from Tofu, squeeze of excess water and place it in a tissue paper. Leave it for 10 mins. Again squeeze well and scramble it with palms. Keep aside.
  • Chop onion and tomato.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds, urad dal, cumin seeds when they crackle add curry leaves.
  • Next add onion and ginger garlic paste. Saute for few mins.
  • Next add tomato and saute. After few mins add red chili powder, cumin powder, salt and mix well.
  • Saute for few more mins, if needed add some water.
