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.

  • 3 tablespoons cornflour
  • oil for frying
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce

  1. Cut tofu into 12 cubes. Place cornflour on a plate or in a shallow bowl and coat tofu in it, thoroughly.
  2. Heat enough oil in a large frying pan or wok so that tofu will be half-way submerged. Fry tofu in hot oil for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until crispy. Drain on some paper towels.
  3. Sprinkle spring onions over tofu and drizzle with hoisin sauce. Serve immediately.

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
