Deep Fried Tofu in Chilli Sesame Sauce
I’ve been posting a lot of meat dishes lately so I guess this is a good time to post something without meat and something a vegetarian would enjoy, so let me present you this dish “Deep Fried Tofu in Chilli Sesame Sauce”. This dish may be meat free but I can assure those meat lovers out there will love this simple dish, it can be eaten on its own or even served as a side dish for mains. With the crunch of the tofu skin to the smooth and silky insides flavoured with soy and sesame plus a kick of chilli this will appeal mostly everyone.
I guess I will not explain further and just let your palate do the judging then let me know how it goes.
2 blocks tofu
3 tbsp Light Soy Sauce
1 tsp water
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 stalks spring onions, sliced
2 red chillies, thinly sliced
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 inch ginger, finely sliced
a pinch of sugar
freshly ground black pepper
- Deep fry tofu until skin is crispy and golden brown.
- While tofu is frying in a bowl combine light Soy Sauce, water, sesame oil, spring onions, red chillies, ginger, black pepper and sugar. Set aside.
- Remove tofu from oil and pat dry with paper towel, this will also remove excess oil. Now slice tofu into cubes then place on a bowl.
- Pour mixture over the tofu then garnish with spring onions.
