Crunchy, healthy veggies in a spicy lemongrass flavoured gravy, the goodness of this dish is further enhanced by the presence of low-cal, iron-rich, fibrous tofu.
While freshly-made paste has an unbeatable charm of its own, you can also make it in advance and store, to make this dish quicker.
This vegetable dish can be a meal by itself, or it can be served with kodri for a scrumptious lunch. Take care to use only very tender lemon grass, chopped finely using scissors.
