Crisp Fried Tofu with Pepper and Roasted NutsYou can fry tofu in different ways with different seasonings and batter base. Today's recipe is very simple and is a perfect companion for your evening tea time. I've tried to keep the overall flavor mild and subtle but you can add the spark by using some hot chilies. Roasted nuts add more kick to the preparation and give the required crunch in the recipe. If you do not prefer deep fried stuff, you can bake or roast them with little oil in a nonstick pan. Instead of bean curd, you can also use classic cottage cheese to make this yummy snack. You can also drizzle spicy dip on top of hot fried tofu before serving it to the hungry bellies. Let's make this yummy snack that's not only delicious but very nutritious as well.
