Prepare all ingredients. Dice tofu, peel and chop onion and garlic.
Heat Pan. Add oil. Peel the skin of Banana and cut it in the middle or lengthwise and fry until golden brown under low medium heat.
Remove the bananas once cooked and set aside.
Add onion and garlic. Saute until golden brown.
Add tofu and cook until golden brown or according to your preference. Avoid overcrowding for even cooking.
Add raisins and mix, cook again for another 2 mins.
Add mixed vegetables and cook again for another 2-3 minutes.
Add tomato paste and soy sauce. Mix well to ensure tofu is well coated with tomato paste.
Add salt and pepper to taste and mix well. Add a few drops of tabasco sauce and chili flakes for some spice.
Adjust the taste according to your preference.
Let the tomato paste evaporate and be absorbed by the tofu and it’s ready to serve.
Top with fried bananas for presentation.
Serve with a cup of rice and enjoy.
Leftovers can be transferred in an airtight container. Keep in the fridge when it’s not hot anymore.
This recipe can last for up to 5 days if kept in the fridge.
Do not overcrowd the pan to have even cooking especially if you are using two packs of tofu.
When adding the tomato paste use half first and adjust the taste according to your preference.
You can opt for just peas instead of mixed vegetables.
You can add sugar if you find it a bit sour because of the tomato and that is optional, start with 1 tsp to 1 tablespoon first. I didn’t add any sugar I can taste the tomatoes very well but the next day it got even better and more delicious.
I diced my tofu into small pieces and eventually broke them in the pan and made ground tofu.
If using fresh tomatoes fry them together with the garlic and onion.
