Cooking Steps

Measure the ingredients.

Make the batter

Add the rice flour, baking powder, and sugar to a bowl. Add the soft tofu while crumbling it in your hands and mix it in.

Form the batter into ovals

Once the batter is mixed, form it into bite-sized ovals (the oval in the photo is about 10 grams).

Deep fry

Fill a pot or frying pan with oil and heat to 160°C, then fry the batter from step 3 for about 4 minutes while turning them. Place them on a tray to drain the excess oil and let them cool.


Decorate them with sprinkles or other decorations.
