Steps

1. First, drain the tofu. If you have time please leave it to drain for about 1 hour. If not, it's fine to give it just a quick drain.
2. Finely chop the carrot, onion and spring onion. Add every ingredient that isn't for the sauce or seasoning (sake, ginger, salt & pepper) into a bowl and mix well.
3. Add the sake, ginger, salt and pepper and mix until the mixture starts to feel a little sticky.
4. Grease a frying pan with some oil, shape the patties into the size you want and cook one side over medium heat for 5 minutes.
5. Flip the patties over and cook for a further 5 minutes. Once they have browned, they're ready.
6. Mix together the sauce ingredients and add to the frying pan in one go. Mix with the patties and you're done ♪
