 Gravy
  1. Heat oil in a pan and add green chillies and Garlic to it. Fry for some time till you get nice garlicky aroma from it

Note:  
  • After frying tofu you can add it to gravy if you like. (I like to dip my tofu in gravy n then have it).
  • You can add sugar to the gravy if you don't like spicy food or if you want to cut the sourness of soy sauce you can add some sugar to gravy.
  • You can deep fry tofu if you like.
  • You can add some extra veggies of you choice
