Grilled tofu with spicy barbecue sauce

I made this spicy barbecue sauce with Indian flavors to go with grilled slabs of tofu.

1 pack firm tofu (drained)
1 large sweet onion
2-3 cloves of garlic
2 tomatoes
half cup chopped cilantro
a few sprigs of fresh mint
3-4 jalapenos
2 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp store bought barbecue sauce
2 tsp curry powder or tandoori masala
turmeric powder
salt to taste
oil for cooking

Drain the tofu well and pat dry with a towel. Spray some oil on the slabs of tofu and grill till it gets nice grill marks on both sides. Season with salt and pepper.
For the sauce
Chop the onions, tomatoes, garlic, jalapenos and put them in a blender. Add the mint leaves and make a paste. Take some oil in a pan and add this paste along with the ketchup, barbecue sauce, salt, turmeric and curry powder. Cover and let it simmer for about 10 minutes till the oil separates. Pour the sauce over the grilled tofu and serve.
