Crispy Lemon grass Tofu - Tofu starter recipe - Tofu recipe

I do tofu at home at least 2 to 3 times a week for dinner. Normally I serve it as a starter. I have posted a few Hot and sweet lime tofu, Basil tofu, Pepper Tofu, Sweet and hot Sesame tofu, Pan Fried Tofu.. This evening when I wanted to make Tofu I wanted to make use of lemon grass that I had in the fridge. I love Lemon grass flavour. Normally I add to the tea. Whenever I make the tea the aroma in the house is so amazing. I was not sure whether my kids would like it esp my 2nd one. He loved it. So you can try this differently flavoured Tofu. You can replace Paneer in place of Tofu in this recipe
