Salt & Spicy Tofu

salt & spicy tofu

  • 1 packet firm or semi-firm tofu
  • olive oil for deep frying
  • 1 cup corn flour/tapioca flour
  • 2 tsp sesame oil 
  • 4 cloves garlic, grated
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp white pepper 
  • 1 tsp chinese 5 spice
  • 1 fresh chill, finely diced or 1 tsp dried chill flakes
  • lettuce, cucumber and fresh coriander for garnish

Drain tofu on paper towel while preparing the rest.

Combine spices.

Cut tofu into cubes or triangles. Heat olive oil in fry pan – enough to deep fry.

Once oil is hot coat tofu in flour and deep fry in batches until turning golden. Drain on a paper towel and keep warm in oven.

Stir fry garlic, chili and spices in a small amount of sesame oil until fragrant (don’t overcook). Combine tofu and spices and serve with garnish.
