I’m surprised my kid likes tofu. It’s funny because tofu and I didn’t really have a love at first sight kind of story. It took me a while to get used to it. I think the reason I like tofu is because of its nutrient more than its taste. Anyway, I’m blessed that he is happy when I give him something healthy.
Now try this. Stir fried chicken and tofu with basil. It’s so easy to make and so yummy with some hot rice. I just made this for lunch and my kid absolutely loved it.
Chicken and Tofu with Basil
100 gm Chicken- sliced
250 gm tofu-sliced into small pieces and shallow-fried until golden brown
2 fresh red chilies- chopped
4 cloves garlic- chopped

½ tbsp sugar
1 tsp fish sauce

Heat oil in the pan over medium-high heat and sauté garlic and red chilies until aromatic.
Add chicken and stir fry until the chicken is cooked. This should take about 2 minutes or so.
