Procedure :

  1. First squeeze water completely from tofu by pressing tofu with heavy objects like a chopping board. Then freeze it overnight.
  2. Later thaw it fully, drain the water. Again squeeze out water by keeping tofu wrapped with dry napkins under heavy objects for 20 mins. Wait  until it is completely dry.
  3. Now tofu has a meat-like texture(see picture 1). Tear tofu slab into pieces by hand instead of a knife. 
  4. For marination mix all ingredients and coat the tofu pieces and just wait for 5 mins.
  5. Mix cornstarch and chilli powder separately and then sprinkle over marinated tofu pieces and toss gently.
  6.  Ready a baking tray with parchment paper on it. Place the tofu pieces(see picture 2) and bake at 190°C for 30mins.

Serve hot with Egg-less Mayonnaise.
