Crispy Tofu In Thai Chilli & Basil

This week will be great for all diet food followers and south Asian food lovers. I will be experimenting with south Asian food in my blog. Today's basic ingredient is "Tofu", also called bean curd, is a food made by coagulating soy juice and then pressing the resulting curds into soft white blocks. Tofu originated in ancient China. Tofu and its production technique were introduced into Korea and then Japan. Tofu has a low calorie count, relatively large amounts of protein, and little fat. It is high in iron, calcium and/or magnesium.
