Dunk your tofu cubes into the batter and let it marinate for 30 minutes or so.

Heat oil in a pan.

Dunk the marinated tofu into a plate of semolina, ensuring that the cubes have a decent amount of batter on them firstly, and then are
completely coated in semolina.

Fry till golden brown.

Serve with more lashings of lime, and a mint or chilli chutney.
