Palak Tofu Recipe - Tofu & Spinach Curry Recipe

This is another simple spinach gravy recipe and it is similar to palak paneer but i used tofu instead of paneer and made this gravy less rich and made it healthy. It is pretty simple to make as well. It is so healthy because it doesn't need any cream in this.
