Whether you are a vegan or vegetarian, Tofu can be an ingredient that’s healthy for everyone. For Indians, although, who have been used to eating paneer or the Indian cottage cheese for ages, this might be a different ballgame. If you are trying tofu for the first time, you should bake it instead of deep-frying it to keep its nutrients intact. If you thought that you might not get the crispy texture without frying, you would be proved wrong with this crispy baked tofu recipe:

- 500 gms of tofu
- 1 tbsp tamari or Soy sauce
