Tofu Salad

In our series of highly irrelevant and irreverent blogs... How to avoid the banality of buying stale samosas for an easy evening in the office.

To make an excellent, light but tasty dinner for two, get hold of:
  1. 1/2 kilo of tomatos
  2. 1 medium-size cucumber
  3. 1 bellpepper
  4. 250g of tofu
Total budget at the sabjiwalla at Kshetrapati circle: 40 NRS (0.4 euros). Cut the vegetables and the tofu into crunchy medium-size pieces, throw in a pinch of salt, and optionally black pepper and some lemon juice. Mix tenderly to avoid breaking the raw tofu chunks.

Tofu, the rich and ancient food of the gods

If you remember to keep a plate with you, you can opt for a more dignified dining style instead of the rustic mix-it-in-and-eat-out-of-the-plastic-bag method... And if your friend actually shows up, it adds to the delight of the evening.

(Well, at least I had her hard drive here on my desk, filled up to brim with goodies... Shine On You Crazy Diamond... Man, it's been a small eternity since any of that was played in the house!)

A proper dessert is a crucial aspect of a successful dinner

For dessert, roll a super joint. Er, I mean, roll some super laddus. The meal needs to be crowned with rich dessert flavor for its effect to last the entire evening. Bon appetit!

A friend told me yesterday that people still see me largely as saintly... 'twas a tad bit amusing. It's like I have over a dozen alter egos living in people's minds across the world. Perhaps a series of blogs with questionable content will help amend things.

Excellent. Even if I'm not a tofu expert! Soft and juicy, pleasantly neutral, quite tender but firm enough to make good cubes. The guy down the street here has a 10 liter low basin where he keeps the big tofu cubes floating.

For the hot season, food like this is life... Hing would be a good addition, yes -- and herbs of course, if you have some in stock.
