  • In a large bowl, add the regular tofu, using hands or a fork to crumble. Mix with turmeric and season with salt.

  • Heat the remaining oil in the pan and fry the crumbled tofu over high heat for 7-8 minutes. Don't stir too often, but wait until a slight brown crust has formed.

  • Pour the silken tofu in a bowl and stir roughly with a fork.

  • Wash the chives, pat dry and cut into small rings.

  • When the tofu in the pan is well browned, add the silken tofu, smoked tofu cubes and everything else, stirring occasionally until scrambled. Cook for one minute.

Nicole’s swap tips:
You can replace a portion of the amount of salt with Kala Namak. It gives the smoked tofu a particularly egg-like taste.
