Steamed Tofu Dumplings with a Hot and Tangy Sauce

Here is a healthy snack that you can make in a jiffy. The original recipe was with paneer but I had to settle for tofu since I did not have any paneer on hand.
Ingredients
Sauce
White vinegar – 2 tbsps
Tomato ketchup – 1-2 tbsps according to taste
Red chilli paste – 1 tsp or to taste (I used Siracha chilli sauce)
Dumplings
Tofu – ½ cup
Finely chopped vegetables – ¼ cup
Dried dill leaves – 1 tbsp
Rava /sooji (semolina) – 2 tsps
Rolled oats – 2 tsps
Baking powder – ¼ tsp
Salt to taste
Method
Sauce
Mix all the ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil, while stirring continuously. Simmer on low heat for 4-5 minutes, take it off the heat and keep aside to cool.
Dumplings
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Divide into equal sized balls and steam for about 6-7 minutes (I steamed them in my idly stand).  They get a little sticky if placed together, so do not overcrowd. When slightly cooled, remove from the steamer and serve with the hot and tangy sauce. Bon App├ętit.

  4. I am in search for tofu recipes, that can be hidden in taste and texture factors.. as my kids dislike tofu, they will not have it as is...so this would be good for them and me.
    Love Ash.

  6. This is a wonderful idea! Steaming instead of frying ensures it is cooked and yet healthy!! Genius! :)
