  1. Step 1

    Pour the oil into a large lidded frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the onion, peppers and garlic for 6-8 mins or until softened. Stir in the spices and cook, stirring, for a further 1-2 mins. Mix in the tomatoes and simmer gently, stirring from time to time, for 5-10 mins or until reduced.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, crumble the drained tofu into a bowl. Add the kala namak and nutritional yeast, and mix well. Make six deep wells with the back of a spoon in the thickened tomato mixture, then pile the tofu into each one. Lower the heat, cover the pan and continue to cook for 4-5 mins or until the tofu is warmed through. Sprinkle over the coriander and serve with crusty bread, if you like, to mop up the juices.
