Tofu-Beans Stir fry

Hi friends,
sooo sorry for being late in updating my blog. Here, i am coming with my recipes shower..
Ingredients required for tofu-beans stir fry :
Tofu is very high in protein and less in fat content.
1  Extra Firm Tofu
1/4 bag of beans [grocery bag]
Few leaves of Mint
1/2  tsp  Corriander powder
Oil  to saute
1/2  tsp [less/more] Red chilli powder according to spice
Salt, Cilantro to taste.

Tofu-Beans Stir Fry  with yummy omlette and rice on the side

Draining away excess water from Tofu :
Place tofu on a deep plate and place stack of  plates/bowls on top of tofu for atleast 15 minutes. This procedure removes all the absorbed water from tofu, thus making tofu perfect for stir fry.
Please do not allow tofu to break down during the process.
If tofu seems to break down, remove stack of plates and replace them again on the center of tofu.

Once all the water has been drained away from tofu, cut the tofu into smaller cubes as you see in the above picture and set them aside.
Chop beans into small piece and set them aside.

Take a pan with enough oil to saute;  Put tempering, add beans to the tempering, add salt, stir altogether, close lid and let it cook for 5 mins on medium flame.
Meanwhile, take another pan with some oil to saute, let it heat up and add the chopped tofu pieces, stir fry them until they turn golden brown.
Remove the stir-fried tofu from pan and set them aside.
Now, open the lid of beans and let the beans cook for another 10 mins.
Add stir-fried tofu to above cooked beans and let altogether cook for another 5 mins on simmer.
Finally add red chilli powder, corriander powder, cilantro, home made peanut powder [if you like], stir altogether, switch off the stove and serve it hot with yummy omlette and rice on the side :)
