Agedashi tofu is a very old Japanese recipe for fried tofu.

Cooking Recipe

280g silken firm tofu
plain flour, as needed
2 cups (500ml) water
2 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tbsp mirin
1 tsp dashi granules
Vegetable oil, for frying
2 spring onions, chopped

1. Place the block of tofu between sheets of kitchen paper towels. Cover with a heavy object (a cutting board, a dish filled with water, etc.) and press for 15 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, combine the water, soy sauce, mirin and dashi. Bring to the boil over medium heat. Remove from heat and set aside.

3. Remove the kitchen paper and cut the tofu into 1 to 2cm cubes. Lightly coat the cubed tofu in flour.

4. Heat the oil for deep frying. Fry the tofu for 4 to 6 minutes, or until golden brown. Fry in batches if needed, so as not to overcrowd the pan.

5. Place the fried tofu in a serving dish then pour over the sauce and sprinkle with spring onion. Enjoy!
