  • 14 ounces firm tofu drained, compressed, patted dry
  • 3 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt-free garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Maharaja- Style Curry Powder or other salt-free curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or salt-free chili powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F [200°C]. 

  2. Coat a baking pan with vegetable oil or line with aluminum foil.

  3. Cut the tofu into french-fry shapes. Spread the tofu fries on the prepared baking pan in a single layer.

  4. In a small mixing bowl, combine the sesame oil, garlic powder, curry powder, and cayenne. Using a pastry brush, paint the tops of the tofu fries with one-half of the seasoned sesame oil. Bake for 20 minutes. 

  5. Carefully turn the fries, and paint with the remaining half of the seasoned sesame oil. Return to the oven and cook until the tofu fries become slightly puffy and crispy, about 15 minutes longer.

  6. Serve immediately.
