  • TOFU: To get rid of any excess moisture from tofu, click here to read some tips that work in my kitchen.
  • CHIPOTLE PEPPERS IN ADOBO SAUCE: This is the brand that I use. Use 1 pepper for regular spicy and 2 for VERY spicy. The adobo sauce is simply the leftover liquid in the same tin. Where to find Chipotle Peppers in India? I purchase my can from food hall stores or INA market. Alternatively, you can buy them from Amazon
