Stir Fried Cumin Spinach And Tofu (Vegetarian)

Helloo everyone,
I am back today with your side, my side and everyone's side, side dish (Crispy Fried OkraCauliflower Fritters, Kailan Oyster Sauce & Vallakai Poriyal). Regarded as a must-must for rice, actually come to think of it, you can actually tuck into a vegetarian side alongside bread, chappati, tosai and idli (Spicy Chickpeas Long Beans, Masala Mustard Green Tofu & Purple Cabbage Stir Fried & Aloo Gobi). Not all, yet, all sides can be included as dishes which are affordable (Gado-Gado Vegetarian, Rice Vadai, Vegetable Achar, Turmeric Tomato Soup & Mango Chutney & Mango Cucumber Yogurt Salad). Then of course, when it comes to healthiness, spinach is atop the list because "Popeye The Sailor Man" said so (Spinach/Bayam Sambar). Also, just a dollar or so, this time I bought for this Stir Fried Spinach And Tofu.  

1 bunch (about 400g) spinach - discard roots, rinse and cut into 1 inch length
1 packet (about 300g) white hard tofu - cut into bite size pieces
1-2 red chillies - remove seeds and slice thinly
10 garlic - smashed
1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
Squeeze of lemon/lime juice
2 tbsp of oil
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, saute garlic.
Add cumin seeds and tofu pieces.
Stir and cook till tofu becomes brown on the edges
Add spinach and sliced chillies.
Drizzle lemon/lime juice over and season with salt.
Stir for a couple of minutes prior to dishing out.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
