Difficulty:BeginnerPrep time: 10 minutesCook time: 15 minutesRest time:1 hour Servings:8 servings


This is a yummy grilled tofu sandwich made with delicious pan fried masala tofu and tangy mint coriander chutney.


  • Dry Masala Mix

  • Mint Coriander Chutney


  1. Use firm tofu for this recipe 
  2. Drain the water from the tofu pack
  3. Place the tofu in the freezer for 1 hr. Freezing and thawing tofu creates a network of pores in the tofu that helps it crisp up better when fried and also makes it more absorbent.
  4. Thaw the tofu and press out as much liquid as you can
  5. Cut the tofu in 8 slices and subsequently into 16 pieces (by making a perpendicular cut, refer to video)
  6. Make the dry masala mix
  7. Cover the tofu pieces with the masala mix (on both sides)
  8. Spread the masala so it sticks well to the tofu
  9. Set the tofu pieces aside to marinate and make the mint coriander chutney
  10. Mint Coriander Chutney

  11. In a grinder jar add mint leaves, coriander leaves, 1 large garlic clove, green chillies to taste, some lime juice and salt to taste 
  12. Add some ice to the jar. (Adding ice to the blender jar helps the chutney maintain a vibrant green color)
  13. Add 1/4 cup of water and blend well
  14. Pour it into a bowl
  15. Pan Frying the Tofu

  16. Use a non stick pan for this recipe
  17. Brush some oil (any neutral cooking oil) on the pan
  18. Heat the pan to a medium/high heat
  19. Place the tofu pieces and cook till both sides turn golden brown
  20. You can drizzle some oil on the tofu before flipping it
  21. It should take approximately 5 min per side
  22. Grilled Tofu sandwich

  23. Take 2 slices of bread
  24. Smear some mayonnaise and green chutney on the bread slices
  25. Add tofu and raw onion slices
  26. Make a sandwich 
  27. Smear some butter on one side of the sandwich 
  28. Place the butter side down on a grill sandwich maker or a grill pan
  29. Smear some more butter on the other side of the sandwich
  30. Cook till sandwich is crisp and golden brown 
  31. Cut the grilled sandwich in 2 triangles 
  32. Dip the sandwich in ketchup or green chutney and enjoy!
