For tom yum patty
- Remove the tofu from the package, wash and rest on a plate. Cover with a lid and put a heavy weight on it so that the water drains completely from the tofu. Keep the tofu to drain for at least 60 minutes.
- Dry grind the oats to form a fine oat flour.
- Combine all the ingredients for the patty once the tofu has drained. You will get a soft, yet combined dough.
- Refrigerate for at least 60 minutes for the dough to firm up, and the oats to soak in the balance moisture.
- Make a thin slurry with the flour and some water.
- Mix the two sesame seeds in a plate.
- Form about 4-6 patties from the mixture, dip it in the slurry and coat with the sesame seed mixture.
- Pan fry the patties on a low flame for about four-five minutes on each side, until done.
