FRIED TOFU PATTIES


FRIED TOFU PATTIES
This is yet another great snack idea for tofu lovers like me. This fried tofu was crispy on the outside and soft inside with a delicate flavor of soy sauce going throughout. Here I have coated the tofu lightly with breadcrumbs. If needed, marinated tofu can also be used here and the tofu can be thickly coated with breadcrumbs.

INGREDIENTS:
Extra firm tofu, 1 packet.
Egg whites, ½ cup.
Breadcrumbs, 1 cup.
Soy sauce, ½ teaspoon.
Chili powder, ¼ teaspoon, (optional).
Salt as per taste.
Oil for shallow frying.

PREPARATION:
Cut the tofu in big half-inch thick slices. Remove the excess moisture from the slices by patting them dry with paper towels. Beat the egg whites, soy sauce, chili powder, and salt together. Heat around 3/4th cup of oil in a pan. Meanwhile create a work station with the breadcrumbs on a plate first, egg whites next to that, and the tofu adjacent to the egg whites. Dip the tofu slices in the egg whites and then coat them with the bread crumbs and shallow fry the tofu slices in hot oil for a few minutes each side until they are golden-brown. Serve hot with ketchup or soy sauce.
