We do get firm and extra firm tofu here, but when I try to squeeze out as much water out of it as I can, it breaks when I'm sauteing.
No need to squeeze the water out on firm tofus Jenim. You can leave them on a kitchen towel and it gets sucked. Tofu do break no matter how careful you are. So either you lightly fry them or deep fry them. Or use non stick pan. But that doesn't guarantee as well.
You should add tofu, a few minutes before you want dish out to the plate. Remember tofu is already a cooked item, there is no need for extra cooking
.

In ur recipe, about substituting eggs instead of tofu, I just want to clarify:

1) when using boiled eggs - did you mean slit the sides of the eggs with a knife, before putting it in kolambu - not sure? Yes, slits the sides. Sorry
2) when using scrambled eggs - Is this how I'm supposed to do it?
Like, saute onions and scramble the eggs, add salt. After this, how do I steam it ?
Sorry for not giving proper instructions. Use raw onions if you can stand the smell otherwise, slightly saut them or just leave it out. Beat eggs, a bit of chilli and tumeric powder and salt together. Pour in a baking dish. Steam until soft but firm. Say about 8-10 mins. Add to the kolambu, just about 5 mins before shutting off the flame.
I have never done this before - so if you can explain the process of steaming scrambled eggs, it would be helpful. Sorry I gave a wrong impression but follow the method I gave above.

OK one more question - Do you have to boil potato prior to putting it in the Kolambu or do you let the potato cook in the tamarind juice? No need to boil first. Just add to tamarind water. Remember it will take time to cook potatoes if you add to tamarind juice first.
Please do not hesitate to ask questions if you are still not sure. Good luck.

Guys, my sincere apologies if you don't understand my recipe. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts.

My problem is I am doing this during my office hour and so I am writing in speed, hence i can go haywire. Sorry.   Embarrassed
