Vegetarian Tofu Pancake

What can you do to turn a plain and tasteless tofu into a wonderful dish? Here is a simple and easy solution to make that tasteless white tofu into a delicious pancake.

The ingredients are simple and the dish is even simplier to make. It only take approximate 30 minutes to make this dish.

Here is how I made my tofu pancake:

1 box (1 lb) of firm tofu (if you are from Malaysia buy the small square one from the wet market)
1/2 cup finely diced carrot
1/4 cup finely diced shiitake mushroom
2 table spoon diced green onion
1 table spoon sesame oil
1 table spoon soy sauce or to taste
white pepper to taste
1 cup bread crumbs or tempura batter mix

1) Scrambled tofu in a big bowl.
2) Add in all the ingredients into the bowl except bread crumbs and mix well.
3) Add bread crumbs into the tofu mixture.
4) Take approx. 1/4 cup mixture and form into paty.
5) Pan fry the patties until they are golden brown on both sides.
6) Served it over rice.

You can eat this with any kind of sauce you would like, I like to eat my tofu pancakes with chili sauce.
