Fried Tofu with Pepper & Salt

~ Posted on Friday, July 19, 2013 at 8:53 AM ~

It's been quite a long time since I last cooked for dinner since my kind MIL is taking charge of cooking the dishes for dinner all this while. But for this post, I am sharing my next dish, which I got over the Internet as MIL is taking the day off to enjoy herself and I thought time to get my lazy buttocks to do some cooking hahahaha... So here goes my post on Fried Tofu with Pepper & Salt:


1. 1 block of firm tofu – cut into 1” cubes
2. ½ cup of cornstarch
3. Salt to taste
4. For the salt & pepper dip: 1 tsp of Szechuan pepper (I used black pepper) & 2 tsp salt

* Dry the tofu with some paper towel. Sprinkle it with some salt.
* Heat oil in a hot wok until surface seems to shimmer slightly.
* Lightly coat tofu pieces in cornstarch.
* Gently lower the tofu into the hot oil – it is important not to coat the tofu in advance of heating the oil, or it will become very moist and sticky.
* Fry the tofu until they are lightly brown and crispy, remove and drain the oil on paper towel.
* Arrange tofu on a platter and serve immediately with the salt and pepper mixture.
