The Crispy Threaded Tofu is a pretty sight, with slits all over the wrapper, which make it seem as if the saucy tofu is wrapped up with threads! It is as tasty to bite into too, because the crisp outer slowly gives way to a tangy Schezuan sauce flavoured stuffing of succulent tofu or paneer, making every bite a sheer delight. Serve this tasty starter immediately on preparation.

Crispy threaded tofu was just perfect for a sunday lunch. A little tideous work, but the result is too good. Crispy from outside, soft and smooth from inside.
