This is a simple but delicious recipe which is sure to be popular with the kids. It is sweet, but not to the point at which I would serve this only as a dessert. Have it as a side dish to accompany one of your meals and watch your guests’ delight when they bite into one :-)

Ingredients

1 silken tofu block
Potato starch
Vegetable oil

Sauce

2tbs sugar
2tbs mirin
2tbs sake
2tbs soy sauce
1/2 tsp Chinese chili miso paste (‘toubanjan’) – optional
1tbs Japanese mayonnaise

Step 1


Mix all the sauce ingredients together in a bowl.

Step 2


Empty the water from the tofu box and slice into bite-size blocks. Then put potato starch into a bowl and put the tofu in the powder generously on all sides. Then prepare vegetable oil in a hot pan.

Step 3


Fry each block of tofu in the pan on all sides until crisp. Make sure you don’t let the blocks touch eachother. Then wipe up the excess oil with a piece of kitchen paper held by cooking chop sticks!

Step 4

Pour on the sauce and fry a little more until well coated. Delicious! ;-)
