Ingredients for the egg replacement

  • 3 tablespoons besan/chickpea flour
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon kala namak (gives it an eggy taste, alternatively replace it with 1/4 tsp salt)

Ingredients for the flour coating

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose-flour
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder


  • In a pot, bring the veggie broth to a boil. Add the TVP slices and cook them until soft (takes about 10 minutes). Once they are soft, drain them and gently press out excess water.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour, water, sriracha sauce, and kala namak for the egg replacement. The mixture should be egg-like, you can add more or less water if you need to.
  • In another small bowl, mix the ingredients for the flour coating: flour, salt, paprika powder, and garlic powder.
  • Soften the rice paper by placing one in a shallow plate filled with water - it will be soft in 10-20 seconds.
  • Transfer the softened rice paper onto a clean, lightly wet surface and add one TVP slice in the middle. Wrap it in. Repeat until you’ve wrapped all the TVP slices.
  • First dip the rice paper-wrapped TVP slices in the egg replacement, turn them, then coat them in the flour breading. Then add them to a pan with frying oil (the bottom should be covered with the oil but don’t fill it too much otherwise it might spill over). Pan-fry the vegan TVP chicken on both sides until golden and crispy but this only takes about 4 minutes.
  • Transfer them onto a paper towel to remove excess oil. Then you’re done!
