"I'm not really sure if this is a sweet or savoury dish, but they're very rich and sweet and salty and savoury and delicious, and the comforting coconut sauce just makes it even better. A delicious mix of flavours! Make sure you eat them immediately so they don't lose their flakiness! The tofu doesn't really give it flavour, it just ensures a moist and succulent centre."

  • Step 4/9

    Heat some oil in a pan, then place the tofu paste and fry until it starts going golden brown and it cooks out, about 5-8 minutes. Place in a sieve set over a bowl and press as much oil out as possible. You can try forming balls beforehand and then frying, but for me it just fell apart in the pan. Once you have drained as much of the oil off, set aside.

  • Step 5/9

    Separate the dough into eight pieces. Roll out each dough piece wide enough so that you can place an eighth of the tofu filling inside. Finely chop the two tablespoons of ginger, and place an eighth of it on top of the tofu filling. Fold the dough over the filling, making sure it is sealed, them carefully roll out into a disc about 1cm thick, being careful to stop the filling from leaking out. Repeat for the other eight.

  • Step 6/9

    Heat a generous glug of oil in a saucepan and heat over a medium heat for 2 mins. Add a pancake to the oil, and fry for around 2 mins on each side, remembering that the oil will increase in temperature so you may have to fry each one for less and less time as you progress through the set of eight. Once both sides are golden brown, place on a plate lined with kitchen paper.

    Meanwhile, get on with the sauce. Grate the thumb sized piece of ginger. Place the coconut cream, ginger, mixed spice and brown sugar in a pan and heat over a low heat. Stir constantly until thickened and it coats the back of a spoon, without letting the mixture boil.
