Foolproof Crispy Tofu

I have only just figured out how to make great crispy tofu every time. I am loving this recipe as the tofu crisps up really quickly. I am also looking at various glazes I can add for extra flavour. For now I give you my basic recipe which can be served with a dipping sauce as a snack, or as part of a main meal.


300 grams firm tofu

2 tablespoons cornflour

3 tablespoons oil

Salt/pepper to taste

Optional, chilli, garlic.


Drain the tofu and cut it into chunks, whatever size you want.

In a large bowl, add the tofu and cornflour, a good pinch of salt and pepper. Mix together well until tofu is well coated.

Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the tofu to desired crispness, tossing the pieces in the pan regularly to ensure all sides are cooked.

Transfer to a serving bowl. Optional, sprinkle with fried garlic and chilli slices. Delicious!
