  • 1 cup firm tofu mashed
  • 1 teaspoon dukkah
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons onion chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons panko
  • 1 egg beaten
  • cooking oil for frying


  • Mash the firm tofu in a mixing bowl.
  • Press a stack of kitchen paper on the mashed tofu to remove excess water.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, except the cooking oil, and mix well.
  • Heat enough cooking oil to reach a depth of a quarter inch.
  • Form the tofu mixture into balls — huge balls, about three inches in diameter — and drop into the hot oil.
  • Tofu and dukkah burgers
  • Once in the pan, press down the balls to form patties. I used my fingers but, of course, there’s no reason why the back of a spoon can’t do the job of flattening the balls. It’s safer. But there’s more control when using the fingers.
  • Fry over high heat until browned and crisp. Flip for even browning.
