Vegetarian Tofu Fritter

I'll have to say not many people enjoy taking tofu especially my boy. He is an extreme picky eater. He's the one always judging my food by the look on his face. haha.... After cooking for so many years, I have finally learnt something. Never ever tell the picky eater what's in the food. Only tell them after they tried the food and let you know that was GOOD! haha....Just like these tofu. My boy loves deep fried food a lot and this just perfect for him. He didn't even ask what's in there! See what I mean.

Ingredients :
2 cube medium size smooth tofu
one red chili, chopped
some coriander leaves, thinly sliced

Flour mixture :
1-1/2 cups  flour
1 cup   rice flour
2 tbsp   wheat starch(tung fun)
2 tspn   baking powder
1/2 tspn  vegetarian granule seasoning
salt & pepper to taste
1-1/4 ++ cup of water

Method :
(1)  squeeze tofu with hands (the most fun part...haha...) and then add in chili & coriander, set aside.
(2)  in another bowl, combine all flour ingredients and stir in water slowly till you get a very thick & sticky paste (but not runny).
(3) next, combine both flour mixture and tofu mixture together and mix well.
(4) finally, fry them over medium heat till golden brown.

Each of these tofu fritter is about the size of a spoon. It's best to keep it small, so that the crunchiness will stay lasting.

Now, show you the inner look of the fritter. Yummmm.... What you do next is just dip it in to some chili sauce and then dive straight into your mouth. That is !  :o)
I'm sending this to Shaz & Suresh @ Muhibbah Malaysian Monday.

Not only your boy. The BIG boy in my house also the same. Sometimes I will cook something without telling him what is in there and he will eat it without any questions. I like this type of fritters. I still have a tube of tofu in the fridge and I might make this and see if he eats it or not. He hates tofu :)

When I was young, my grandma used to cook very beautiful vegetarian fritter for me too. These fritters remind me a lot of my good old days.
