Spicy Tofu Strips

Fiery tofu stripsLet's make a unique bean curd preparation which can be relished anytime of the day. Apart from making tofu strips, the recipe itself can be prepared in quick time. Although the fried version is comparatively much easier to make, I prefer to cook the regular version which requires a little care to avoid breaking of strips. Refrigerate strips for a while before tossing in the wok. Needless to say, the addition of local seasonal veggies can liven up this recipe. Excessive tossing and stirring the strips can ruin the entire preparation. As always, you are free to moderate the spice as per your taste. To make a slightly different version, add flavored yogurt in it. Get ready to quickly make this delicious tofu strips recipe.
