"Kothipori" is a Malayalam word which means
"scrambled eggs".Kothipori is made with eggs,onion,
tomatoes and spices and is served on the road side
shops during night time. Today i saw a site
where the kothipori was made with porathas hmm...
sounds interesting .So i thought why not try with
tofu? Well i tired with tofu and came out good.
It looked like the kothipori that is made in
kerala but only difference is there is no egg
Firm Tofu- 1 container [140z]
shallots- 1/2 cup chopped
green chillies-2 thinly chopped
ginger-1 tsp thinly chopped
black pepper powder-1tsp[optional]
coriander leaves-2 tbs chopped
vegetable oil-2 tsp
Squeeze the tofu and remove the water and
crumble in to small pieces .keep aside.
In a pan add oil and chopped shallots,ginger
and green chillies. When onion is translucent
add the tomatoes and saute until it is soft.Add
the scrambled tofu,turmeric powder and salt.
Saute until tofu is cooked and the water is
absorbed .Add black pepper powder and coriander
leaves. Remove from flame.This dish can be
served as a breakfast item.
