Thai Spiced Tofu Balls



Put all of the ingredients, except the sesame seeds and oil, into a food processor and blend until combined. Roll the mixture into approximately 16 balls. Coat each ball in sesame seeds and place in fridge for 30 minutes.

Cover a frying pan with about 1 cm of oil over a low-medium heat. 

Once hot, add the tofu balls in batches and fry for 5-7 minutes, turning regularly, until golden brown all over. Place on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
