1-2 Bay leaves
1/8th tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Garam Masala
1/2 tsp Chilli powder
Salt to taste
2 tbsp Oil


Step 1: Par boil rice and Set aside.

Step 2: In a sauce pan, heat oil and add bay leaves with onion & garlic. Saute until golden brown. Mix in tomatoes now and season with salt, turmeric, garam masala and chilli powder.

Step 3: On a medium-low flame, add milk, stirring occasionally. Cook for 5-6 mins. Finally add the tofu pieces and cook for couple of mins. Set aside.

Step 4: In a separate saucepan, evenly spread a layer of tofu mixture (just the gravy, w/o tofu pieces) and then top a layer of rice. Alternate likewise. Make sure the topmost is a layer of rice.
