Tofu also called as Soy bean curd. Tofu is made by coagulating soy bean milk and pressing
the resulting curds into soft cakes. Three types of tofu available in the market. Those are
Soft, extra soft , Firm and extra firm. Based on recipes, type of tofu is being used.  Tofu is
one of the traditional ingredient in use in asian recipes, especially in China, Korea and Japan
and all south east Asian countries. Tofu has a low calorie count and relatively large amounts
of protein. It is high in iron, and it can have a high calcium or magnesium content,
depending on the coagulants used in manufacturing. I used to go in the market and keep
seeing tofu. But, As I am an Indian and never tried before, I thought to buy this and started
exploring how to use this tofu. Then I found a method of cooking from one of the youtube
video. The final result is yummy. I prepared for two of my friends. But, due to this recipe
crispy and spicy, I myself completed most of the part.
