If you want to pack your veggies with some carb, and at same time make it tasty and spicy for a cold winter thursday evening, this will be my first choice. I love thursdays…
* 1cup Jasmine Rice
* 1/5 cups of fresh veggies like beans, cabbage, corn, green/red bell peppers, sprouts
* About 10-15 1″inch sliced pieces of extra firm tofu
* 1tsp garlic salt
* 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
* 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
In a saucepan, wash 1 cup of Jasmine rice, add 1:2 ratio water, cover with a lid and cook on a medium flame for about 15-20 minutes without stirring. Once the rice is done, spread it out on a plate and separate the grains using a fork.
While the rice cools, add 2 tsp of oil in a wok, add the tofu and shallow fry them for 4-6 mins in medium flame, sprinkling few dashes of garlic salt and 1/4 tsp of chilli powder.
Set aside the tofu, add more oil, add the grated ginger and saute for 30 secs, add the fresh veggies (if you have sprouts, add them last for crunchy flavor) and fry them with 1/4 tsp of salt + 1/2 of crushed red chilli (according to your spice level) for 3-4 minutes in med-high flame.
Add the rice to the veggies and mix it well on high flame and fry for 2-4 minutes. Add the fried tofu and serve hot.
