Published: : Last update:2014/01/14 Tofu , , ,

Today’s recipe is ”Atsu-age / Deep-fried Tofu.”

Only use Tofu and  some oil for deep frying.
Serve with green onion and “Shoga-jouyu”. (grated ginger and soy sauce.)
Try them with your favorite cold beer! Wow!

I cooked with my home made tofu.
Of course you can cook with Tofu you buy.

In that case, I suggest to try  non-GMO “Sunrise Medium Firm”. (Red package.)

Home made Atsu-age / Deep-fried Tofu

  1. Cut Tofu half wide and half thick. Wrap with cooking paper.
  2. Put small wight on wrapped tofu and leave 3-6 hours.
  3. Change wrapping cook-paper sometimes while process 2.

 Atsu-age, grated ginger, soy sauce, and BEER!

Montreal has covered with snow now.
Cool Beer and warm cozy room.
And “Atsu-age”! What a nice combination!

“Shoga-jouyu” – it means “grated  ginger and soy sauce”.
It is the simplest way to eat Tofu but the best way, I think.
It’s no doubt you enjoy having a nice time!

For more help, I  add some information about this recipe.

It is very important to drain water of the Tofu.
If it contains a lot of water, it’s dangerous when you deep-fry.
Leave and drain until you can pick up tofu without dropping water.
It is also important to change cooking paper sometimes.

Another important thing, Don’t deep-fry too much.
It should be too hard to eat.
Check the color changes in light brown, then finish.

Give it a try and  you can feel this Japanese basic taste!
