Tofu, also known as Soya Bean Curd is called the “cheese of Asia”. It is high in protein, low in saturated fats, a good source of calcium and vitamin E. Recent studies have shown that soya beans and products derived from them may play a role in preventing certain types of cancer, particularly breast cancer.One drawback though is that, tofu easily absorbs cooking fat and soya is also known as a common cause of food allergy.

10 cubes of fresh tokwa, cut in half
2 medium size tomatoes
canola oil for frying
2 tbsp. soy sauce
garlic and onion
