‘Agedashidofu’ is a very popular Japanese dish but many people don’t ry it at home because it needs to be deep-fried. How about this shallow-fried tofu? Enjoy the crispy outside and creamy inside with two different sauces that I often cook, or you can create your own yummy sauces.


4 Servings


Fresh Medium Firm Tofu (Momen) 2 blocks
Salt & Pepper
Plain Flour
Oil 2 to 4 tablespoons


1.Ā Place Tofu on slightly tilted cutting board or plate for a while to remove excess water. If thick, cut to 2 to 3cm thickness.
2. Salt & Pepper Tofu and coat with Plain Flour.
3. Heat oil in a frypan and cook Tofu all sides until golden and crispy.
4. Serve with sauce.
Tip Prepare Sauce first, and serve Tofu with the Sauce while Tofu is still crispy.
