Visually appealing and amazingly tasty, these Parathas look very good thanks to the green hue imparted by the spinach purée. There are different varieties and brands of tofu available, both Indian and international. Indian tofu is softer in texture and less expensive than the international ones. You could use whichever is easily available, that will not change the 'effect' of the dish!
