Deep Fried Tofu with Onions
- 400g firm tofu
- 3 tablespoons cornflour
- oil for frying
- 2 spring onions, chopped
- 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
Preparation:10min › Cook:5min › Ready in:15min
- Cut tofu into 12 cubes. Place cornflour on a plate or in a shallow bowl and coat tofu in it, thoroughly.
- 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.
- 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
