      Notes:

      • How to crumble tofu: Remove tofu from package and thoroughly wash under a cold running water. Pat dry and crumble it.
      • Keep flame in medium and very gently while shallow frying cutlets.
      • You can keep uncooked  tofu cutlets in refrigerator because cold patties will stay together during frying. The patties can be made several hours ahead and fry before guests arrive.
      • You may also use bread to help you get that cutlet shape. Soak a bread in the water and immediately squeeze out the water completely and use it.
