Servings 4


  • Instant Pot




  • Chop the onions, tomatoes, and cilantro. Slit the Serrano peppers lengthwise into 2 halves.

  • Discard the water from the tofu. Crumble the tofu with hand and then a potato masher.


  • Select sauté on the instant pot and adjust to normal.

  • When the oil is hot add cumin seeds.
  • When the cumin seeds begin to splutter in about 30 seconds add onions. Keep stirring. When the onions turn golden in about 2 to 4 minutes add ginger garlic paste, Serrano peppers, and tomatoes. Saute the tomatoes for about a minute or two until the tomatoes get mushy. Keep stirring.
  • Add red chili powder, ground coriander, ground turmeric, salt, and cilantro. Stir. Let it saute for 30 seconds.
  • Then add the crumbled tofu and stir. Let it saute for a few minutes until the water evaporates. Keep stirring.
  • Garnish with garam masala and stir. Press cancel. Serve hot with tortilla.


On a scale of 1 to 5 in terms of spice levels, I would place it at level 2.5 with one Serrano pepper and at level 4 with 2. You can modify the spice levels accordingly.
