Palak Tofu

Palak Paneer is a very popular North Indian dish. It tastes best when served hot with rice, Naan or Roti. It is very attractive from its great and rich green color. Today I have made 2 variations to my regular recipe - I have used tofu instead of paneer and have also not included onion and garlic.
