Tofu Masala - Healthy side for rice, roti, chapathi - Simple and healthy vegetarian gravy

We love Tofu. I almost make it every other day. Other day we had very heavy meals in the afternoon so for the night I wanted to do simple meal. But I didn't soak any dhals and I wanted something quick and healthy. I had some Tofu in the fridge. Since my kids love Tofu dishes I have decided to try out Simple Tofu Masala. With Tofu and yogurt in this dish is very high in protein.
