 Tofu Guchi is a good side dish for roti, naan or paratha. Tofu Guchi has vegetables like mushroom and capsicum which makes the dish tasty and healthy. Apart from that, the creamy rich gravy of the dish is really delicious. Though the list of ingredients for this dish is little lengthy however, if you taste once I am sure you would love to make it again.
