This is what I did to the other half of my homemade tofu. Pan fried coated with crispy flour and sesame seeds. I can't describe how good these tofu nuggets are but Daddy who doesn't fancy tofu ate up the whole lot. Take it with wasabi, these crispy tofu tasted even better.....mmmmm tasty to the dot. Great finger food for parties and I guarantee you that it would finish in a wink of an eye :p . You can coat it with potato flour or store bought crispy flour. For those staying in Ipoh, get the crispy flour from Yummy - the organic shop in Ipoh Garden South . The tofu nuggets keep its crispness till you finished the last piece :)
Homemade tofu taste better and tofu is so versatile that you can make many delicious dish out of it :) I named it Pan fried Tofu Nuggets coz it is like gold nuggets. Jo told me that it is pricey over in UK. Silly gal , even though it may be a bit pricey , it is still worth eating coz tofu contains lots of protein and good for health. Easy to digest and she can just steam it and eat with her kimchi LOL! I understand she just bought a small jar of authentic kimchi for £2.90 . She is just like me...love tofu and kimchi! Coming back to this pan fried goodness...well all you need is a slab of homemade tofu , cut into nuggets ( recipe in previous post ) crispy flour, cheyenne pepper, sesame seed , one egg white and grapeseed oil for frying. Easy and taste yummy :) You can dip in sweet thai chilli sauce or wasabi or any of your favourite sauces . Do not worry about the oil. Grapeseed oil is cholesterol free and good for health. I have changed to using grapeseed oil for most of my cooking :)

Homemade Tofu - Pan Fried Crispy Tofu Nuggets
1 slab of homemade tofu , cut into long thick nuggets
Coating flour :
crispy flour / potato flour
cheyenne pepper to taste
( mix the above coating flour ingredients together)
1 egg white - whisk with a pich of salt + pepper
grapeseed oil - enough for pan frying
Dust the tofu nuggets with potato flour/ crispy flour , dip in the egg white and coat with the coating flour mixture. Place the coated tofu into the hot grapeseed oil in a non-stick pan , far apart so that they don't stick together. Pan fry them under medium heat. Flip over the other side when it is slightly golden in color. Dish up and place them in paper towel to absorb the extra oil from the tofu. Serve with wasabi or any hot chilli dips of your choice.
