Recently, my dear husband who is a well-known meat eater switches his eating habit. Well, he still loves to eat meat though, but he's been asking more for veggies, fish and tofu. The last one is his addiction now. I've tried to prepare it in various way, steaming, another steaming with some filling, frying and other variation of cooking. And I decided to make snack from tofu. Got the recipe from my former student, and ended up modified it. Here is the recipe.
- 1-2 square firm tofu (this time I used traditional tofu but found out it's too watery/moist and hard to dry out)
- plain flour + seasoning + pepper --> mix well (I used: coriander powder, salt, garlic powder, no pepper since my J does not like pepper)
- beaten egg
- bread crumbs (I used panko)
- frying oil
Cut the one square tofu into 4 pieces and let it dry (I tapped it with paper towel). Dip in the flour then egg, lastly bread crumb. Fry until golden brown. Dry up the excessed oil with paper towel.
Ingredients for dipping sauce :
- 1-2 cloves garlic (chopped)
- 2 cm of ginger (chopped)
- 1tsp rice wine
- 2 tbsp oyster sauce
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1tsp sesame oil
- 2 tbsp light soy sauce
Saute the garlic and ginger until fragrant, add bit water. Continue adding the rest of ingredients. Cook until boiling.
