How to make fried tofu :)

A number of people have asked, so here is my guide to making yummy fried tofu…

1. Ingredients…

  • ‘Firm’ Tofu (£1.20 from local Oriental Supermarket, but is sold in most supermarkets)
  • nuts and seeds – cashew, almond, sunflower, pumpkin (and maybe some diced spring onion)
  • vegetable oil
  • soy sauce
  • ginger + garlic + salt
  • non-stick pan


2. Make it…

  • heat the pan (no oil at this point)
  • cut up the tofu into reasonably sized squares
  • whack em in, lay them flat
  • heat for 10 minutes turning regularly until they brown and crisp slightly
  • whack in the nuts and seeds, along with a splash of oil
  • fry until golden, splash on the soya sauce (not vital)
  • add the spring onions and crushed garlic and ginger for flavouring
  • keep stirring and give it a taste


3. Eat it!

Tweet me a picture on @LondonVeganSoc and let me know how it goes!

Why Showbox For Apple Is In Demand These Days

Entertainment has been our best friend in many ways. They help us to come out of stressful situations and make us keep our cool as they divert us from the daily troubles. Entertainment is of many forms and varieties. Usually they involved much physical activities but this has dwindled down over the years and with technology growing, entertainment has become so easy for us. Nowadays, they come in the form of electronic gadgets telecasting something called movies or shows.And we are so attracted towards it that it has become a part and parcel of our lives. Today, we are going to talk about movies and about an app called Showbox that can help you a lot with this movies  and so on. This app is not available for the Apple devices and so we’ll learn about how to download the showbox for apple.

Showbox is an application that’s available for android mobiles and it is available free of cost but it is not available in the default Google Play Store which is not going to be much of a problem because it is available all over the internet. You can go to any web browser, search for it and sideload it on your device. It is fully free of cost and you have so many features in them. You can watch any movie at any quality of streaming as you wish and you can even save them offline to watch them later, all these at the expense of not a single penny. But this app is not available for our friends who use the iOS powered devices and so we are going to teach them how to download this app for Apple. showbox apk

What is Showbox for apple:

For all you Apple smartphone users out there, here are a few steps to get this app in your devices too. Follow my lead into downloading these in your devices from the steps available at showbox for apple:

  • Actually, this application is available for apple devices with the same name and so it is called the Moviebox.
  • So first go to your default web browser on your Apple device.
  • In the search option, type Moviebox and click search.
  • After waiting for some time, you’ll be shown a horde of sites promising to lead you to the app.
  • Go into any one of them and you’ll have a page that has got so many links to the app.
  • But some of them are only ads and so read everything on that page and carefully click on the place which you feel is the actual link.
  • It will start downloading and you have to wait for some time before it completely finishes the downloading process.
  • After it finishes you must go to your file explorer or whatever you call it and install it.
  • This installation will not take much time or work.
  • You’ll just be asked to give some accesses and permissions before it is done.

Now that you’ve installed it, go and enjoy the world of movies.
