Notes

  • It is not mandatpry to use all the colours of bell pepper. Available bell pepper varieties alone can be used. Adding all the varieties adds more colour to the salad. Also each variety has different nutritive value.
  • Toast the tofu just before mixing otherwise the outer part will become dry.
  • Quantity of pepper powder, honey and lemon juice can be adjusted to suit your taste.

 

Happy Cooking!
