In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook garlic, onion, chili powder and salt, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until softened.

Stir in rice; pour in stock. Bring to boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Transfer to bowl; let cool completely.

Meanwhile, coarsely grate tofu and carrot. With potato masher or fork, mash rice mixture slightly; stir in tofu, carrot and rolled oats until blended.

Shape into four ½ inch thick patties. (You may prepare recipe to this point, then wrap the patties in plastic and refrigerate for up to 24 hours).

Place patties on greased grill over medium-high heat, or on greased baking sheet; close lid and cook, turning once, for 10 - 12 minutes on grill, 14 minutes under broiler, or until crispy on the outside. Makes 4 servings.
