Agedashi Dofu- fried tofu-揚げ出し豆腐
popular tofu appetizer dish
Agedashi Dofu is a very popular tofu appetizer dish in Japan. Easy to make and very healthy as well!
Here is how to make it crispy and delicious.
Ingredients for four people
2 Tofu (firm, `momen`)
2 Table spoon of flour, starch, or rice powder
Toppings-ginger, daikon, scallion, nori, etc. (as you like it)
Sauce/soup to dip the tofu
- Dashi soup 1Cup (how to make this?, please refer to http://hiddenjapanguide.com/archives/1298)
- mirin 1/2 T
- soy sauce 2 T
1 Cut the tofu into pieces/shapes of your own liking (usually rectangular) and place them in between kitchen towels, so that the extra water may be absorbed. Leave for about 15 minutes.
2 Boil the ingredients for the sauce/dipping sauce.
3 Prepare the toppings. (grate the ginger, daikon, chop up the scallions and so on.)
4 Spread the flour/starch/rice powder onto the tofu, so that it covers the tofu pieces, evenly.
5 Fresh vegetable oil at 180C. Place the tofu slowly and carefully and leave for a few minutes on each side, until the color is brown.
