TOFU PATTIES




TOFU PATTIES AND ONE MORE AWARD FOR MOI
I prepared these tofu patties for an evening snack yesterday. They tasted good and everything was over in a jiffy. These were the only ones left. I used only a few ingredients along with the tofu. If needed, even chopped onions and vegetables can be added while making the patties. Another thing is that since I used a nonstick pan for frying the patties, I have not used a single drop of oil here. Hmm…that’s pretty good for a healthy snack :)

Malar Gandhi from http://www.kitchentantra.com/ has passed on the Good chat award to me. Thanks a ton dear for remembering me. I am passing on this award to all my blogger friends who have been chatting with me and passing on their valuable comments :)
INGREDIENTS:
Silken tofu, 1 packet.
Whole wheat bread crumbs, 1 cup.
Ginger-garlic paste, ½ teaspoon.
Fennel seeds, ¼ teaspoon, (optional).
Green chilies, small, 2.
Cilantro, 1 small bunch.
Salt as per taste.

PREPARATION:
Put the tofu in a bowl and drain out the excess liquid from the tofu by placing paper napkins over them for 10 minutes. Pat the tofu fry with a dry paper towel and crumble the tofu finely. Wash the cilantro and chop them into fine pieces. Cut the green chilies into very small and thin circles. Add the chopped cilantro and green chilies to the tofu along with the whole wheat bread crumbs, fennel seeds, salt, and ginger-garlic paste and mix everything well. The mixture should be dry enough to form patties out of them. If needed, some more bread crumbs can also be added. Heat a nonstick pan. Form small patties out of the tofu mixture and fry the patties on medium flame for a few minutes on each side. If needed, the patties can be cooked drier by leaving them on the pan for a few minutes. I wanted mine to be still soft in the centre, so I took them off the stove when the outsides were brown and crispy. Serve hot tofu patties with soy sauce.
