      Title: Palak tofu-paneer
 Categories: Main dish, Indian, Tofu, Vegetarian
      Yield: 8 Servings
 
      1 lb Firm tofu, drained, cubed
    1/4 c  Soy sauce
           Oil for deep-frying
      2 tb Ghee
  2 1/2 lb Frozen, chopped spinach
      6 c  Fresh tomatoes, cubed
      2 tb Ghee
      2 ts Curry powder
      2 ts Asafetida
  1 1/2 ts Ground cumin
      1 ts Ground coriander
    3/4 ts Cayenne pepper
    1/2 ts Black pepper
    1/2 ts Cinnamon
    1/4 ts Allspice
    1/4 ts Cloves
      2 tb Soy sauce
 
  Soak first 2 ingredients together while heating the oil to 350
  degrees. Remove cubes from soy sauce and drain a few seconds in a
  strainer to remove excess soy sauce. Drop tofu cubes in heated oil
  all at once (or in a couple of separate batches if you desire) and
  cook till browned and a little crisp on the outside. Remove from oil
  and drain on plate covered with 2 to 3 thicknesses of paper towels.
  Leftover soy sauce can be kept and used later.
  
  As the tofu cubes are cooking (or before you start frying them),
  combine the next 3 ingredients together in a skillet. Cover and put
  on medium flame to simmer for 10 minutes. Remove lid and mix well
  (the frozen spinach should be thawed and mixable by now).
  
  Leave uncovered over medium flame to allow some of the juices to cook
  off as you make the chaunce.  This is done by heating the ghee or oil
  in a butter-warming pot and adding all the spices listed. Toast in
  oil till the fragrance of the spices fills the kitchen and the spices
  appear to be browned.  Pour into cooking vegetables immediately, add
  soy sauce and mix thoroughly till tomatoes break up.
  
  Turn off heat, add cooked tofu cubes, and cover for a few minutes
  before serving.  Makes 8 entree-sized servings or twice as many side
  dish sized servings.
