Hot and Crispy Tofu

Hot and Crispy Tofu
Here is another tofu recipe from my kitchen and the specialty of this one is this will always win the quickest snack/starter contest at any point of time! Honestly, I am not joking! My earlier recipe of crispy fried tofu was totally different in taste from this one and it was intentional. I wanted to make something quick but new so that I can share it with my readers. If you are already a tofu-lover, you should not think twice before making it; and if you are not, these crispy squares will surely turn you into one. These are great accompaniments with a hot cuppa on a rainy day and trust me, you will ask for more.
