  • Cook rice in the microwave according to package directions. If using leftover rice, skip and move on to the next step.
  • While the rice is cooking, heat the oil in a deep 12-inch nonstick skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Once the oil is heated, add the onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes until translucent.
  • Use your hands to crumble the tofu into the pan. Add turmeric and kala namak. Stir to combine the tofu and seasoning mixture. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the veggies, rice and tamari and cook until veggies are warmed throughout, stirring frequently. If you are using leftover rice, it may take a few minutes longer since the rice will be cold, and you want to make sure the rice is thoroughly heated.
  • Drizzle with toasted sesame oil if desired.
