This was actually pretty good - I left out the flour and the water and added 2tsp lemon juice and made a paste-like batter. I cooked it in a frying pan with a little olive oil. Stuffed it in a pita with tzatiki and fresh tomatoes! YUM!


I had my doubts about this recipe, but I had some tahini and about-to-expire tofu that I wanted to use up. I should've trusted my instincts because I did not care for this at all.


I was intrigued by this concept despite the many negative reviews it received. I decided to give it a try with a few modifications. I used about 6 table spoons tahini instead of 4. I used 2 whole eggs instead of whites only. I used a table spoon of oyster sauce as well as soy. I used up some corriander we had in the fridge. I cut the amount of liquid by half and cut the water with a generous amount of balsamic vinegar. I used white flour since this was what we had on hand. I also added some salt and red chili flakes. I dipped thin slices of extra firm tofu in the batter, leaving some in the bowl. Half way through baking, I poured on the rest of the batter. I baked for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. My partner and I thought this version tasted great.
