Fried tofu with soja sauce (my version)

posted in: Recipes | 0


– 1 block of firm tofu – cut into roughly 1.5cm cubes
– 1/2 cup of cornstarch (Speisestärke / Maizena)
– 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
Salt to taste
Soja sauce
Rice vinegar
Sesame or sunflower oil.

How you do it?
1
Before cutting the tofu to pieces, dry it slightly make sure the it is properly dry. If it’s still wet it will ruin the cover and make a mess. Sprinkle it with some salt. Lightly coat the tofu pieces in cornstarch and the pepper flakes. Make sure they are evenly covered in the mixture.
2
Heat oil in a hot wok until surface seems to shimmer slightly. Then carefully lower the covered tofu pieces into the hot oil.
3
Fry the tofu until lightly brown and crispy, remove and drain the oil on paper towel.
4
Separately make a sauce base with the 3 parts soja sauce and 1 part rice vinegar. Place it in a bowl ready to serve.
5
Arrange tofu on a platter and serve immediately. Tastes better by dipping into the sauce.
