Golden Fried Tofu Bites

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by lortle

Fast, easy and tasty. Goes well with Thai curry. The only tofu that my BF (serious carnivore) will eat! Prep time is mainly the time that the tofu is draining.

mmmm, tastes like the fried tofu I get from local boba milk tea shops. I used my deep frier and added cayenne pepper to the dry mix to give it a little kick. Thanks a lot!
