Tofu Bellpepper Scramble / Tofu Bhurji | Vegan Breakfast Scramble

This is a simple Vegan scramble with Tofu and Bell peppers which is a great dish for breakfast or as a snack. It is really versatile that it can be stuffed as a sandwich, rolled in a chapathi like khatti roll or had as a side dish for rice. I got this bag of cute little mini peppers which I had to add in every stir fry dish I make. Peppers are storehouses of antioxidants and Vitamin C and hey, it makes the dish colorful and appetizing. Bell peppers can be readily substituted with chopped boiled carrots, green beans and peas. 
Serves - 2
Tofu - 1/3rd of a block
Bell peppers - chopped - 1-1/2 cups (I used a mix of mini red, orange and yellow peppers)
Green Bellpepper / Capsicum - 1/2 - chopped fine
Oil - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/4 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/4 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Crumble the pressed tofu into little pieces. Heat 1 tsp of oil with the spice powders and a pinch of salt. When it is heated through add the crumbled tofu and fry in medium-high heat for about 2-3 minutes until it starts to become light brown. Remove and set aside. Spray some oil in the pan and fry the chopped bell peppers in medium-high heat until it starts to brown. Add the fried tofu and add salt if needed. Mix well and remove from heat. Serve hot.
