Tofu Butter Masala

I’m a great fan of paneer dishes. But as it is high saturated fats, I started using tofu as substitute. I mostly use silken tofu as my baby likes it more. Coming to the dish, I came across the paneer based recipe in less than 15 minutes recipe book. I used tofu instead of paneer and the dish goes well with chapatti, naan and parata. Tofu has a low calorie count, relatively large amounts of protein, and little fat. It is high in iron and depending on the coagulant used in manufacturing, may also be high in calcium or magnesium.
