Teriyaki is a cooking technique used in Japanese cuisine. 'Teri' means glaze and 'yaki' means to broil/grill. Usually meat or fish is broiled or grilled with a glaze of soy sauce and sugar giving it a glossy look. I have given a healthy twist to the Teriyaki by making it oil free, refined sugar and dairy free. Sesame seeds are filled with so many nutrients and it gives the required crunch to the dish. A quick starter than can be cooked over a stove top in less than ten minutes. A perfect starter to your weekend parties. You can try the same recipe with Paneer, Cauliflower, Broccoli and also with mixed vegetables.

Serve Teriyaki Tofu along with Spicy Chilli Garlic Noodles for a perfect weekend dinner.
