Tofu Bhurji / Scrambled Tofu / Vegan Bhurji

    
Tofu Bhurji / Scrambled Tofu / Vegan Bhurji
                  Hi All. It’s been awhile since my last blog, quite busy for all these months. And I truly appreciate all of the love and support I’ve constantly received from y'all. :)  
  I am happy to be back in Blogging marathon. And I am starting with 3 different Bhurji recipes and today I am going to share vegan recipe. Yes! it is Tofu Bhurji! Tofu, or bean curd, is a popular food derived from soya. It is made by curdling fresh soya milk. This soy cheese is excellent substitute for eggs and paneer. Since tofu is very bland, It can be easily blended with any type of spices and masalas. And because of its texture, it goes very well in place of scrambled eggs.
    Bhurji is a popular dish in north and western India and Pakistan which is mainly refers to scrambled eggs. With little interest and creativity, we can create 'N' numbers of bhurji recipes other than eggs. Let us check todays recipe.
