As a food lover and a chef i have to try every kind of food that i never tasted to fill my ” CULINARY LIBRARY”. I gave a go a tofu a few years ago and hated the texture , the taste was okay but i didn’t like the consistency. During my trip to hong kong last year i tried tofu but it was crispy , this was the moment when i found out that i love tofu ( fried only) . Since i love salt and chilli squid i decided to replace the squid by tofu for a meat free alternative.
Serves 4 as a starter or 2 as a main course:
*500 grs of silken tofu
*1 large onion
*1 small chilli
*5 spring onions
*1 tbsp of sesame oil
1.Cut the tofu in bite size cubes .Place on kitchen paper to absorb extra moisture.
2.Using a deep fat fryer or a wok with enough oil to fry in it , cook the tofu until light golden colour.Once cooked place on kitchen paper to chill for a few minutes .
3.Once chilled fry the tofu a second time until golden brown , this process will make the tofu extra crispy.Once cooked place on kitchen paper.
4.In a wok , cook the sliced onion and chilli with the sesame oil for 2 minutes before adding the sliced spring onions and the crispy tofu.
5.Generously season with salt and cracked pepper before serving .
