Tandoori Tofu Salad

Tandoori Tofu Salad 3

Another summer salad!

This is a vegification of something that we used to make with chicken and it was surprisingly successful!

I coated cubed tofu with a tandoori and natural yoghurt mix and then baked it for 20 minutes (or until I was ready for it). Made a simple salad of butter lettuce, cucumber and tomato, put the baked tofu on top and then crumbled papadums on top as delicious papadum-y crutons. I made a yoghurt-y dressing (natural yoghurt, lemon juice and mint) to drizzle over the top.

Delicious and easy.

This is also totally gluten-free (as long as you check the tandoori paste ingredients - all the ones I've ever used are gluten-free) as papadums are totally gluten-free (lentil flour FTW)!

Yes yes!! I love the flavour of tandoori, yet can't make it the normal way on account of dairy allergies. My way of circumventing the issue is to use tandoori base as a paste for stirfries, as well as for a "tandoori tuna pie" topped with mashed potato (though I guess that one's out for you :P). But am definitely wanting to make this version soon!

@carla - I've never had the tandoori tofu salad at the EBC and I would be very interested in what it is like. I hope it lives up to your expectations!

@Sarah - move to Melbourne. It can be yours!

@Hannah - I would never have thought of using tandoori as a stirfry base but it gives me a bunch of ideas! *plots*

@Joyce - I hope you enjoy it.
