Tofu/Soy Paneer- This is an alternative to paneer for  all vegan/lactose intolerant people. Tofu is made from soy milk just as the way paneer is made from animal milk.I tried making tofu once at home and I gave up because it took a lot of time (may be my procedure needed more fine tuning). I once grabbed a tofu packet to just give it a try and all that I made was this quick Burji.Tofu is rich in protein ,low in calories but contains a lot of other vitamins and minerals.Tofu is safe as long as it is non-GMO and you are not allergic to soy protein. You can use tofu instead of paneer in any recipe. This tofu burji is so simple to make and it serves as an excellent side dish for rotis, filling for rolls,sandwiches.
