Many people shy away from serving tofu due to the monotonousness of the bland taste. But Fried Tofu makes use of its tasteless white flesh. In this dish, the tofu serves as a building block in bringing a colorful, flavorful sauce that makes the blandness a welcome complement.

The white smooth tofu is transformed after frying into golden, spongy goodness dressed with spicy peanut dipping sauce. The white spongy texture holds the sauce so well that each bite becomes an addictive contrasts between the tofu and the spicy, sour and nutty sauce.

Fried Tofu is a big hit among my vegetarian and vegan friends.

Tips and Techniques

  • I use one package of firm tofu, 14 ounces.
  • Firm tofu is easier to fry, though fried soft tofu tastes pretty good, too.
  • Dry tofu with kitchen towel or paper towel to prevent splattering.
  • Use cast iron or similar pan to create a non-stick surface. Heat up the pan until it's hot before you add oil. Let the oil heat up before you place the tofu into the hot pan.
