Preparation

To Make the Tofu Nuggets:

  1. Stir the flour together with the raw cane sugar, sea salt, and 6 tablespoons water until the batter is smooth. Finely crumble the cornflakes.
  2. Cut the tofu into slices that are just under 1/2-inch, and then use a knife to shape the tofu into nuggets. Dip the nuggets in the batter and then coat them with the cornflakes.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a small saucepan. You’ll know the oil is hot enough if you dip a wooden toothpick into the oil and small bubbles float up to the top around the toothpick.
  4. Fry the nuggets for approximately 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.

To Make the Curry Ketchup:

  1. Mix all of the ingredients with 3 tablespoons water. Serve with the nuggets.
