Tofu Fried Rice Recipe



This is one quick fried rice you can make with tofu. I marinated the tofu before and sauted it till golden, then i tossed it with the rice, this way the tofu is not bland and has some flavour to it. You can serve it as it is or as a side for any gravy.

  2. Looks wonderful ! A doubt here , why is sugar used ? Will it make the rice sweet?
