-Gently dry the tofu block with the kitchen paper as much as you can.

-Cut the tofu in bite-size squares. Then season with salt and pepper.

-One by one, dunk the tofu square in the flour then egg and lastly.. breadcrumbs mixture. Keep repeat this process to all the tofu squares.

-Put 2 tablespoons of the oil into the frying pan. Fry the tofu nugget until it turns lightly golden on each side.

-Transfer the tofu nuggets onto the baking tray. Bake approx 6-8 minutes.

-Take the tofu nuggets out of the oven and serve immediately. I love these tofu nuggets with sweet chilli sauce, mayonnaise and fresh leafy salad. it is also lovely in a burger bun.

Tip:

-Make sure you get the extra firm tofu as it will maintain the shape a little better.

-Some Thai curry paste contains shrimp paste. Please check the ingredients on the package if you are Vegans.

-Tofu nuggets are also lovely as toppings on noodle soup or serve with Thai spicy salad. Happy cooking 🙋🏽.
