Scrambled tofu with peanuts

This scrambled tofu is flavored with Indian spices, making the bland tasting bean curd more interesting. Lots of onion, garlic and garam masala make it delicious. The same recipe can be used to make scrambled paneer. I used this as a filling for a grilled sandwich .

1 block of firm tofu
1 large red onion
2-3 large garlic cloves
kitchen king masala
Garam masala
1 jalapeno
bunch of cilantro
Salt, turmeric, red chilli powder (according to taste)
1 large tomato
half a green pepper
1 tablespoon ketchup

Heat some oil add onion and let the edges get slightly brown, without stirring too much. Add the garlic, jalapenos, salt, turmeric, red chili powder and the tomatoes. Mix everything and add the kitchen king masala, garam masala and green pepper.  Drain and crumble the tofu. Keep it on a kitchen cloth or paper towel to drain as much water out as possible.  Mix the tofu with the onions and tomatoes, add ketchup and cook for 5-10 minutes till it becomes dry. Top with crushed  peanuts, cilantro and halved cherry tomatoes.
