A must-try yummy fried tofu ... Thanks to my Chef mom, Mama Lorraine Carluen.
Happy reading! Cheers!
For a crispier and crunchier tofu texture, increased palatability, golden brown color, consider deep-frying. This is really a very easy, healthy and budget-friendly recipe.
Quantities and measurements vary on your preference/s.
medium or firm tofu
tablespoons of cornstarch or flour, as needed
extra virgin olive oil or sesame/canola oil for deep frying, as needed
Wash and drain the tofu carefully.
Cut the tofu into cubes, usually four parts per piece, as desired.
Directions for Deep-fried Tofu:
Roll the tofu in the cornstarch or flour with salt and pepper to taste.
(Optional: You may also coat the tofu with egg and cracker/bread crumbs.)
Heat wok and add oil for deep frying. When the oil is heated to at least 350 degrees F., carefully add 2-4 tofu pieces into the wok.
Fry, stirring occasionally, until the tofu is golden on both sides.
Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
Keep warm while frying the remaining tofu.
Serve with Soy-ginger Dressing, Sweet and Sour Sauce, or Chinese-Style Peanut Sauce.
Enjoy this yummy treat! Hugs. :-) Super thanks to my Chef Mom
