Tofu Aloo Paratha - Vegan Thursday

Tofu which is popularly known as bean curd is made of soy milk. Though it has a subtle flavor, it is rich in protein and very healthy. And nowadays people started replacing paneer with tofu because of its health benefits. It has its own flavor and lots of recipes can be prepared with this nutritious ingredient. 
Potatoes are  best known for its highly contained carbohydrates and adding it along with Tofu makes a meal very healthy and filling.
