Drain the tofu and pat with kitchen paper to remove excess moisture. Wrap in a clean tea towel, put a heavy pan on top and leave to dry out until needed.

Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Cook the rice to pack instructions, then drain well.

Meanwhile, mix the breadcrumbs
 with 2 tsp oil. Beat the egg in a separate shallow bowl. Cut the tofu into 16 even pieces and dip in the egg, then coat with the breadcrumbs. Transfer to a nonstick baking tray and bake for 20 mins.

Heat the remaining oil in a wok over a medium heat. Add the garlic, ginger and vegetable mix and stir-fry for 2 mins. Add the rice and stir-fry for 3 mins more until piping hot. Stir in the soy sauce and half the coriander (if using), then serve topped with the tofu, a drizzle of chilli sauce, the remaining coriander and lime wedges for squeezing over.

Tip: To make your own breadcrumbs, use a food processor or the coarse side of a grater. Stale bread is best; if fresh, toast it first.
