Method

  1. Combine all the ingredients except the oils in a large bowl with some seasoning and mix well. Heat both the oils in a frying pan. Grease an 8cm metal pastry ring or cookie cutter and place in the pan. When hot, pour 5 tbsp of the batter in and turn the heat down to medium.
  2. Cook 4-5 mins until golden, then take off the ring (be careful, as it may be hot), flip the pattie and cook the other side. Do this in batches, keeping finished patties warm in a low oven. Serve with the chilli sauce and extra spring onions, if you like.

These weren't complicated to make but the consistency is a bit soggy, despite squeezing out much of the liquid from the tofu. I don't like sweet chilli sauce so didn't have this as an accompaniment so it would have been nicer to put chillies in the patties themselves. A bit lacking in flavour, I thought. Some lemongrass might have been nice to give it a 'kick'.

I agree it's a waste of ingredients. I think i'll just stick to marinating tofu in soy sauce and adding it to a stir fry.

Awful!

Recipe looked nice. Didnt have a metal pastry cutter so thought I could make it as an omlette? didnt work was very mushy. Tasted it and it was bland. Waste of ingredients.

made these and was pleasantly surprised im new to cooking with tofu and this recipe is simple and tasty didn't serve with sweet chilli though served them with baked beans and a slice of wholemeal toast worked out really well

Wasn't a fan of this recipe. Felt it tasted incredibly bland and more like an over-complicated omlette.

I've never had tofu before so didn't know what to expect. I'm not sure whether I drained the tofu enough (just poured off the liquid in the packet - didn't press the tofu at all) but the end result had a nice texture and consistency, a mild flavour, and went well with sweet chilli sauce. I just made one large one in a frying pan because it was quicker. My 9 month old ate it with us, so I fried the veg first to soften it a bit. She loved it as she could pick up pieces with her fingers and it was nice and soft for her to chew and mildly flavoured. I'm giving it a 4 because for myself I'd like stronger flavours. We'll definitely have it again though.
