Baby Bok Choy, Tofu and Bell Pepper Bhaji


I frequently came across Bok Choy vegetable while shopping at our local Chinese market. One day I just bought it out of curiosity, but had no clue how to use it. I decided to give it an Indian twist and use it for making bhaji/Indian curry. The result was yummilicious. 

The garlic and bell pepper gives it a nice, rich and complex flavor. It cooks down quite a bit so adjust quantity accordingly. It is really healthy and nutritious and has lot of vitamins and is low in calories.

Ingredients: Baby Bok Choy - 5-6 heads (chopped), Green Bell Pepper - 1 chopped, Onion - 1 chopped, Tofu - 1 packet (about 12 oz), garlic - 5-6 pods crushed, tempering - 3-4 tsp oil, 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1/2 tsp asofoetida, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp red chilli powder, 1 tsp coriander powder, 1 tsp cumin powder, 1 tsp - garam masala. Few drops of lemon juice, salt to taste.

Procedure: Heat about 3-4 tsp oil in a pan. When it is hot, add mustard seeds. When they crackle, add 1/2 tsp of asofoetida, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp red chilli powder and 1 tsp coriander powder and 1 tsp cumin powder and 1 tsp garam masala. Add onions and crushed garlic. Saute till onions are a little soft. Add chopped bell pepper and saute for 3-4 mins, add chopped bok choy, stir, cover and cook for 3-4 mins. Add salt and check for taste. Then add cubed tofu, stir cover and cook for 4-5 mins on medium heat. Add lemon juice. Adjust salt if needed. Serve with Roti or side dish for rice. Enjoy!

Till my next post, take care everyone.
