Masala Tofu Recipe

I took a week off to stay home with my baby and turns out that am trying to re-establish the chef in me. For the past one year I have not been much into cooking for I was absorbed in various other things in life and now with this vacation and a relaxed mode ,guess Iam regaining the interest to cook and to try different things again. Not sure how long this will last but as far as it does , good for hubby :-p . By the way, he loved the Tofu Masala today...
1 Pack Firm Tofu
1/2 Onion
2 tomatoes
1 green chilli (optional)
1 green bell pepper
4 scallion stems
1 tsp chilli powder
3 tbspn corn flour
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1 garlic clove chopped finely
1tsp tomatoe sauce
Salt to taste
-->Cut Tofu into cubes and mix with corn flour ,1/2 tspn chilli and a little salt. Now, deep fry this tofu until the surface becomes golden brown and crisp yet soft inside. (Do not fry too much as tofy may become hard and chewy)
--> In a pan, drizzle oil and saute the onions/turmeric powder.
--> Toss in the bell peppers/scallions and let it cook for 3 minutes.
--> Now, add the tomatoes/chilli powder /salt and cok for another 3 -4 minutes.
--> Finally when tomatoes are cooked well, add the tomatoe sauce and mix well and keep aside
--> Just before serving, mix the tofu with the curry made and reheat if needed .
