Tofu and Vegetables in Spicy Garlic Sauce

When it's cold outside you need hot and spicy food to warm your body. That's the  case when we have winter here. Serve this easy and simple vegetarian dish over brown stir fry rice or plain white rice. You really can't go wrong with this dish.

Ingredients : 
1 block of firm tofu
1 cup of mixed vegetables ( I took carrot, zucchini, onion, Edamame beans,green capsicum)
7 big cloves of Garlic chopped
2 tsp fresh ginger chopped
2 spicy thai chili chopped - take as per your taste buds
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp soya sauce or as per taste or color
1 cup water
2 tsp corn starch
1 tsp red crushed pepper
2 tsp hot chili sauce
2 tsp peanut oil

In a wok, cut tofu and brown them from all side. keep it aside.
Heat a wok, add garlic, ginger and chili in oil.
Stir fry on high heat for 30 -40 seconds until its aroma comes.
Add all the veges and tofu, mix everything and cook for 5 minutes. Don't over cook it. you need crunch in veges not mushy.
Add soya sauce, vinegar, red crush pepper, hot chili sauce and mix it well. You can mix all sauces in bowl and mix it too.
Add water , wait till it boil.

In a separate small bowl mix corn starch with water and add it to the wok. Cook until sauce thickens and serve hot with your favorite rice or over noodles.

Never leave gas on after adding corn starch, it will thickens the whole dish so much. so turn it off once everything is nice and hot.
