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
1. Deep fry tofu until skin is crispy and golden brown.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. Pour mixture over the tofu then garnish with spring onions.
