Items needed:

Cut Broccoli-1/2 lb
Tofu-1/2 lb
Tomatoes-1/2 or 1
Onions-1/4th-cut into pieces
White pepper powder-(1/2 -1) tea spoon
Garlic-3 cloves
Salt, Chilli powder as needed
Coriander powder-1 tea spoon

Melted Butter-3 teaspoons
Preparation time:40 mins

Method

Wash tofu, squeeze out all the water from it.Once water is removed,cut tofu into pieces.Apply a thin coat of butter on two sides of tofu.Fry them on a nonstick pan until they turn into  golden-brown color.
Meanwhile cook the cut broccoli in microwave for 6mins ( frozen or fresh).Use water exactly up to the level of broccoli pieces if fresh.Once it is cooked, drain the pieces and keep the drained water aside (may be useful for gravy).
In a pan add a teaspoon of oil, to it add onion pieces. Fry them until their color turns golden.Now add boiled broccoli,turmeric powder,grated garlic,oregano leaves  and white pepper powder.Add very little salt, on a medium flame let them fry for  5 mins with occasional stirring.
Now add fried tofu into the cooking pan,allow 5-10 mins on low-medium flame so that garlic flavor/white pepper powder gets onto tofu pieces.
Now add cut tomatoes and add remaining salt needed.After 5 mins of cooking, add chilli powder,coriander powder.In case gravy is needed, can add  broccoli boiled water. Cook on low flame for 5 mins.
Tofu & Broccoli curry is ready..
Note:
Instead of butter, oilve oil can be used to coat tofu pieces.
Instead of frying, tofu pieces can be baked in oven at 350F, but it takes 30 mins!
If more gravy is needed, add tomato paste(mixed with  water) towards the end and boil for few minutes.
