Nepali Style Tofu Chili Recipe!!

Something new in the kitchen again! I do not cook Tofu that often. Maybe it is because I am so used to cooking Paneer (Recipe Here) whenever I want something vegetarian. You might be wondering, why am I comparing something that is so different with each other. It is because of the way I cook these two. For me, Nepali way of making tofu and paneer are same. However, in this post you will see I have made Tofu in a different way. I sometimes like to become creative and when I am, the outcome always is awesome :) Here you go guys, enjoy this easy way to treat Tofu.
