This is a very good way to serve tofu which can be bland otherwise. It is deep fried and served with hoisin sauce and spring onions.
Something else. This is just SO good. I cube the tofu then put them between layers of paper towels for a few minutes. This gets the excess water out so there's no splattering when the tofu hits the oil. - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. This is fantastic as an entree or a main dish for a quick one person meal. Even people who profess to HATE tofu love it and usually don't even know what it is. I skipped the hoisen and mixed up a light sauce of soy, ginger, sesame oil, and red wine vinegar to drizzle over the top. Excellent recipe!! - 29 Sep 2008
Also changed the sauce (I like hoisin with meat, not tofu - it's too rich for the delecate tofu flavour. I like to actually taste the tofu) but the tofu itself was wicked! - 11 Oct 2012
