Crispy Sweet and Sour Tofu-hot Recipe

Aug 25, 2017







Make this unique Sweet and Sour Tofu dish with some burnt garlic fried rice for your child’s tiffin. Add Kissan Fresh Tomato Ketchup to this dish to deliver a delectable taste with the perfect balance of sweetness and zing that your child will love.


    1 cup cooked rice
    Finely chopped carrot, capsicum
    50 grams (1/4 block) firm tofu
    2 teaspoons Kissan Fresh Tomato Ketchup
    1 teaspoon soya sauce
    1/2 teaspoon vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
    2 teaspoons oil
    2 tablespoons spring onion greens
    2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic


1. In a medium bowl, whisk together Kissan Fresh Tomato Ketchup, soy sauce, vinegar and sesame seeds. Toss diced tofu into this mix and marinate for 10 minutes. Tofu is a bland ingredient and ketchup will help by adding flavour to the tofu making it appealing to kids.

2. Meanwhile, prepare rice. Heat 1 tsp of oil in a nonstick pan. Add garlic and saute until its quite golden brown in colour.

3. Toss rice in this along with a pinch of salt, pepper and spring onion greens. Remove and pack in the lunch box.

4. Heat 1 tsp oil in the same pan. Toss the marinated tofu in this on high flame until glossy – 1 minute roughly.

5. Transfer sweet-sour tofu over the rice in the box.
