Masala Tofu Bhurji | Soya Paneer Bhurji | Scrambled Tofu Recipe

Masala Tofu Bhurji or tofu scramble also called as soy (soya) paneer bhurji is vegan, gluten-free and spiced scrambled, works perfect side dish for bread, toast, pav, roti, paratha, variety rice or even dosa. Tofu is healthy alternative for paneer which is low in fat and high in protein and this tofu bhurji is vegan version of popular paneer bhurji or egg bhurji. Tofu works as great substitute for vegan people.

As tofu is bland in taste, I have added different spices to make simple bhurji more flavorful and tofu (soya paneer) does absorb all the flavors well, so it's call masaledar tofu bhurji. We have to use firm tofu for making bhurji and it known as Tau Kwa in Chinese. This tofu bhurji is very tasty and doesn't really taste like normal tofu dish. Capsicum adds wonderful flavor to this bhurji so try not to skip that.


The best thing about this recipe is that we can use this bhurji in multiple ways we can serve this as side dish for breakfast with toasted bread, pav or even for lunch, dinner with roti, paratha or serve as a side with any variety rice. Normally I serve this bhurji with bread toast but this time I had it with Instant Bajra Dosa and it was delicious combination too.
