Air Fryer Tofu 65- Vegan & Gluten Free#MultiCookerMonday

Tofu, this soya cheese which is a perfect replacement for paneer for vegan's. They are excellent source of protein with many health benefits. Tofu has a neutral taste.
Made this Tofu 65 which is an excellent for a starter or else as a snack food for my vegan guest. Since these are air fried it doesn't take much time in cooking. Once marinated, these tofu slices can be grilled in an air fryer with less effort and short time.

400 Grams Firm Tofu
2 Teaspoons Kashmiri Red chilly powder
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper powder
1 Teaspoon Cumin powder
1 Teaspoons Ginger garlic paste
1 Small Lemon juice
1 Teaspoon Garam masala
1 Teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt or to taste
1 Teaspoon Oil
A Pinch of Tandoori color - optional
½ Teaspoon Oil for brushing the air fryer basket

Drain the water from the tofu and cut as medium thick slices and keep aside.

Take all the ingredients in bowl except the tofu slices, mix the marinade well and then add the tofu slices. apply the marinade well on each slice. Cover and keep it in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
After an hour take it out of the refrigerator and preheat the air fryer for 4 minutes at 180°C.
Grease the air fryer basket with a pastry brush with oil. Then arrange the slices, do no crowd the basket and set the air fryer timer to 10 or 15 minutes so as to how crispy you want.

It took just 25 minutes to make two batches of these in a preheated air fryer,
The first batch I kept for 10 minutes after 6 minutes changed the sides. The next batch to make a little more crispy kept it for 15 minutes, after 10 minutes changed the sides.
I served it Mayo Chipotle Sauce , you can serve this with any sauce of your choice.
