Tofu, Corn, and Chive Fritter - adapted from Roti n Rice

Method:

Boil corn in a  large pot of water for about 7 minutes. When cooked, remove from pot and slice corn kernels from the cob.  Process tofu in a food processor until smooth.  Transfer to a bowl. Add corn kernels, Chinese chives, rice flour, and salt.  Mix until well combined.

  4. I can imagine how crispy they are! I love tofu but seldom fry them because too much cleaning to do after that. Maybe I should try this out after seeing your tempting pictures.

  12. My goodness! Look amazing!
    They remind me of pei-pa tofu - the ones shaped in a chinese soup spoon to resemble the old chinese "guitar-type" instrument. They are made from mashed tofu too!
