  • 230g firm tofu pressed
For the Batter:
  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • pinch of chilli flakes
  • 1/4 tsp black salt
  • 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 cup soda water +1 Tbsp
  • 1/2 cup wholemeal flour for dusting
  • oil for frying
  • 1 tsp black salt
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  1. Whisk the batter ingredients to a smooth consistency.

  2. Press the tofu to get all the juice out. Sometimes I skip this part and just squeeze as much water as I can without breaking the tofu. Cut into bite size pieces. 

  3. Fill a shallow fry pan about 1/4 full with oil (we used canola oil for this) and heat it up. Dip each tofu piece in the extra wholemeal flour and then dunk into the batter, then once the oil is hot, fry them for a few minutes on each side until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel. Mix the salt and pepper together and sprinkle over the tofu as desired. Serve hot! Enjoy!
