Grate the tofu?

In the Indian Vegan cookbook she says to "grate the tofu and spread on paper towels to absorb the water".  WTH?

Surely that translates into "crumble" the tofu, but just wanted to know what you guys think.

Which recipe?

I have actually grated tofu - when using it as mock crab in my veggie soup.

I have attempted to grate tofu previously with little success....but that was in the UK where there was only really one type of texture for non-silken tofu.

Here in NZ we do have some super firm stuff that could possibly be grated....but I'd think crumbling would be sufficient (and easier)

It's the "kale-tofu pilaf" on page 177 of The Indian Vegan Kitchen.

I'd say freeze then grate?

Don't think I'd freeze it. I'm guessing it's calling for the super firm stuff that seems to be the most gratable of all forms of tofu. I'm thinking the tofu is going to act like paneer would. It won't grate perfectly, but neither does paneer.

I think freezing it would make it worse. I imagine that it would turn into an even worse crumbly mess.
