How to make a delicious, crunchy tofu sticks/strips!

Hey guys,

Today I am bringing you a very simple and easy tofu recipe that will definitely satisfy your palate.

If you are someone like me who is consciously trying to lower meat consumption (due to whatever reasons), then you must give it a go! Just to make it clear though, it’s not a substitute for non-vegetarian recipes but depending on the firmness of tofu you might get meat like texture when it’s done.

Talking about cooking aspect, it is a slow pan fry method at very low temperature setting. Thus, it might take up approximately 40 minutes to prepare. This method will cook the tofu pieces evenly. However, you need to make sure that each piece of tofu is cut to roughly 1.5 cm thickness. If you cut too thick, the insides won’t be crunchy and if you cut it too thin it would be like difficult to flip while cooking.

Once it’s done you can enjoy this tofu sticks with rice or make a burrito! It’s perfect as a stand alone protein snack as well. So without a further due let get cooking!


  1. 200 g tofu cut into strips of roughly 1.5 cm thickness
  2. 3-4 Tbs butter (or vegan butter). If using oil then use 2 Tbs oil
  3. Powdered Spices:
    • 2/3 teaspoon cumin
    • 2/3 teaspoon coriander
    • 1 teaspoon red chilli powder
    • salt to taste
  4. 2-4 Tbs concentrated tomato purée

  1. In a non-stick pan, heat some butter at low heat, then add the tofu strips and let it fry until it becomes golden yellow on all sides
  2. Then add the spices and sauté at medium high heat for 2-3 minutes until the spices are cooked
  3. Finally, add tomato purée and sauté until the liquid from the purée evaporates
