Deep Fried Tofu Cubes

This is a quick and simple dish. I’m surprise my son likes it too!

  • 1 box silken tofu for frying
  • Cornflour for dusting
  • Oil for frying
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Water
Dipping sauce:
  • Few sprigs of Coriander, chopped finely
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • ½ tablespoon sesame seed oil
  • ½ tablespoon apple cider or white vinegar
  • ½ tablespoon sugar
  • Red chilli, diced (optional)
How to do it:
  1. Cut tofu into bit size cubes.
  2. Add salt to the water.
  3. Sit tofu in the salted water for 5 minutes
  4. Drain the tofu.
  5. Pat dry by gently pressing the tofu in between 2 pieces of paper kitchen towels.
  6. Coat tofu cubes with cornflour.
  7. Heat oil and deep fry the cubes.
  8. Remove when tofu turns golden brown.
  9. To make dipping sauce, mix all ingredients together.
  10. Serve hot.
I like to poke a hole in the tofu cubes then pour some sauce in it. Then eat the whole piece. Nice! If you are eating my way, you need more sauce!!
