Sweet and Sour Tofu

  • 200 gms tofu, cut into cubes
  • 1 large onion, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 7 to 8 green chillies, slit length wise
  • 8 to 10 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1-inch ginger, finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp sesame Oil (you can use any oil of your choice but not mustard oil or coconut oil)

Sweet and Sour sauce

  • ¼ cup tomato ketchup
  • ¼ cup honey (you can use sugar/jaggery)
  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • ½ tsp salt (Be careful with the salt as tomato ketchup has salt in it)
  • ¼ cup water


  1. Lets make the sweet and sour sauce first, in a bowl take tomato ketchup, honey, vinegar, corn starch, salt and water. Mix them all very well and keep it aside.
  2. Now heat a wok/kadai add oil, then add chopped ginger, garlic and green chilies. Sauté for a minute or two so that the raw smell of ginger and garlic goes.
  3. Now add tofu cubes saute for 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Add cubed onion and the bell peppers. Saute on high flame for 4 to 5 minutes as we do not want the capsicum to become too soft.
  5. Now add the sweet and sour sauce which we had made earlier and mix it all very well. Cook the sauce for 5 to 6 minutes or till it thickens a little.
  6. Let the sauce coat the tofu cubes very well.
  7. Check salt at this stage and add if required.
  8. I have taken 1/2tsp salt but added only ¼ tsp.
  9. If you feel the sauce is too dry add ¼ cup water.
  10. Mix all the ingredients well and let it simmer on medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes.
  11. Your Sweet and Sour tofu is now ready to serve.
  12. Enjoy with hakka noodles or fried rice.Sweet and Sour Tofu Image
