Oven Fried Tofu

Ever had to cook for vegetarians and non-vegetarians before for the same party?
I have...often. I do this frequently since HD (Hubby Dearest) turned vegetarian some years ago.
No biggie as growing up our household had both veg and non-veg dishes at every meal, for my mother who was the former and my father a confirmed die-hard meat eater.
The oven fried tofu was a new discovery. I'd bought the tofu, made the fish masala and decided to experiment with it.
It wasn't for HD as he won't try tofu, but I was pleased with the result.
The bland tofu and the spicy masala would have won the old 'Made for each other' contests we had in India.

Second on the USDA list for vegetarian foods rich in calcium is tofu with calcium sulfate.
So here is my fourth entry for Sangeeth Raghunathan's Eat Healthy CALCIUM Rich contest

1 pkt firm Tofu with calcium sulfate.
(I used three slices, drained...1/8 inch thick)
Fish masala (recipe given below).

Smear fish masala on tofu slices and marinate 10 mins.
Broil on baking tray...five minutes on each side in middle rack.
(I did this in the toaster oven on the broil setting).
Watch carefully so it doesn't burn but does turn dark brown.

Remove, cool and eat. I loved it.
