Tofu made at home!

Here is the picture of Tofu I made at home from Soy Milk. I wanted to see, how easy it is to make at home. First I made soy milk as usual at home. I boiled it for 20 minutes. Towards the end, I added 1 cup of Soy Yogurt to the milk, and let it continue to boil. Soon, in just two minutes, Tofu separated from the milk. I strained it. Only clear water was left behind. To this strained Tofu, I put weight on the top for 30 minutes. Now it is a bit firm and ready to make pieces. I can refrigerate the pieces like any other Tofu that we get in the market. or I can make Tofu Paratha or may be Tofu cutlet! Tofu is a very good replacement for Paneer made from dairy.

  1. What a great and useful recipe to have on hand. Thanks!

  2. Wow, who knew it was that easy to make homemade tofu!

  3. Next day, I did use Tofu to make vegetable Tofu cutlet. It turned out to be very tasty. My husband, who is a good food critc liked it very mcuh and approved of it. The most important point here is, easy to make and so cheap as well.

  4. Rupa, you are just amazing. Thanks for putting all this up. Some people also want the recipe of green smoothies. Please do put it up as well.

  5. Hello

    Thank you

  6. Hi,

    Can you please share where do you get soy yogurt in Mumbai? My daughter is allergic to milk and I would like to make her homemade tofu!



  7. Soy yogurt is not available in Mumbai. You make at home. You can buy ready made soy milk with natural flavour from the supermarket.( I make soy milk at home). It should be heated up to make it slightly warm. Add yogurt starter, may be a regular dairy curd for first time. If you don't wish to use this starter, ask me, I can give you non-dairy yogurt starter to make yogurt. Your soy yogurt will be ready in 8 hours. Use now the starter from the same to make your regular soy yogurt.

  8. Hi,
