Smashed tofu fritters with minced pork and seasoned with common Chinese sauces.

This is perfect fritter who loves the taste of pan-fried crispy tofu. I create this recipe for my little daughter who loves meat but never taste plain tofu. She can smell the strong aroma during the pan-frying process and eat up two fritters one meal.

Minced Pork and Tofu Fritters

This recipe is not difficult at all. However I highly recommend using form tofu or at least regular tofu as they contains less water so the fritter will not break after cooked. And it is import to smash the tofu completely so the two main ingredients can combine completely. You can do this with a knife or directly use hand. Additionally, it is highly customizable. Chicken or beef can replace pork.

When frying the fritters, do not turn them over frequently at the beginning otherwise it will be quite hard to from the crispy out shell. Turn until one side becomes brown.  However at the last stage, move them frequently to prevent burnt.
