METHOD

  1. Place the plain flour in a mixing bowl, add the water and whisk to a smooth batter. In another bowl, mix the polenta, rice flour and 1 tsp of cajun spice mix until evenly combined. Dip the tofu chunks in the batter followed by the polenta mix ensuring each chunk is evenly coated.

  2. Pour the vegetable oil into a deep frying pan or skillet and heat the oil to 170c. Carefully lower each of the tofu chunks into the oil and fry for 4 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden and crispy. Remove the chunks from the oil and place onto kitchen towel to drain.

  3. Place the Hellmann’s Vegan Mayo, chives and the remaining cajun spice into a bowl and mix well to combine.

  4. Season the tofu chunks with sea salt and serve alongside the dip.
