In this exotic dish, melt-in-the-mouth tofu is combined with crunchy and juicy veggies and flavoured with black bean sauce. Red chilli roundels add to the spice quotient of the Tofu in Black Bean Sauce making it a truly rare treat.
The black bean sauce gives the dish a fabulous flavour that you will thoroughly enjoy. Even though we have used firm tofu, it is still very soft and must be handled with care.
