starter - deep fried tofu with lemon                                                                



1 x 300 g (10 oz) packet silken tofu

Gently remove tofu from packet and invert onto a plate. Carefully slice into 6 cubes by cutting tofu lengthways in half, then widthways into thirds, draining off any excess liquid. Heat oil in a hot wok until surface seems to shimmer slightly. Lightly coat tofu pieces in spice mix and using a spatula, carefully lower into the hot oil - it is important not to coat the tofu in advance of heating the oil, or it will become very moist and sticky. Deep-fry tofu for about 4 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well on kitchen paper. Arrange tofu on a platter garnished with coriander and serve immediately, with lemon halves.                   serves 4
