Tofu Balls

I got a bit sick of eating plain deep fried firm tofu so decided to make them into balls. A pretty easy snack and it's best eaten hot. Hubby finished the whole plate of it while I only get to eat like 3 of them 8-(

You can also use breadcrumbs for a crispy texture.

Ingredients

1-2 stalks spring onion, chopped
salt & pepper to taste
1 egg, lightly beaten
enough cornflour for coating
oil for frying

Method
1. Mix all the ingredients except egg and cornflour
2. Shape into balls and coat it with egg followed by cornflour
3. Deep fry till golden brown
4. Serve with sauce of your choice

hi, new to cookery. how do u managed to coat it with the cornflour? when i tried to coat it after coating with the egg, it couldn't "stay" as a ball.

hi,tried it out,bit they juz dun seems to stick together.Help!

Zurynee said...

anonymous, you have to use your palm to shape it but dont press to hard. try fine mashed the tofu first.
