- Break down and mash Tofu, add other ingredients and make it into paste texture.
- *Note: If you use ‘Momen’ tofu or soft type tofu, you must press-drain them very well to remove water as much as possible.
- Divide the mixture and make flat nuggets. Put some oil on your hands to work as the mixture is very sticky.
