Fried Tofu in Chinese Sesame Soy Sauce Recipe: Veggie


250g Cauldron Original Tofu, drained well, cut into 2cm squares
glutinous rice flour for dusting (or potato starch or cornflour)
250ml groundnut oil
[hd]For the sauce[/hd]
6 tbsp
light soy sauce
4 tbsp mirin
1 tsp caster sugar
[hd]For the garnish[/hd]
1 tsp toasted white
sesame seeds
1 small red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
1 small sheet of dried nori, Japanese seaweed, finely sliced
1-2 sprigs of coriander


  • Dip the tofu cubes into the glutinous rice flour making sure each one is well coated and dust off any excess. Place on a plate.
  • Heat wok over high heat and add the groundnut oil. Heat the oil to 180C or until a cube of bread fries golden and floats to the surface in just 10 seconds. Shallow fry the tofu cubes, in batches if necessary. Turn them over to ensure all the sides are golden. Then drain the excess oil on absorbent kitchen paper.
  • Add together all the sauce ingredients making sure the sugar has dissolved. Place the tofu pieces on a serving plate, dress with the sauce, then garnish with the chilli, toasted sesame seeds and nori pieces and a sprig of coriander. Serve immediately – delicious.
