Hot crispy golden tofu which makes a delicious appetiser . Normally deep fried but I shallow fry mine and it works well.
I use firm tofu as it doesn’t fall apart so easily. Drain your tofu and I wrap mine in a cloth to soak up excess liquid . Cut your tofu into cubes add some add some plain flour or potato starch into a bowl. Roll your tofu in the flour and coat well .
Then make your sauce 1 cup of dashi 2 tablespoon of tamari and 2 mirin and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Combine these in a pan and heat until boiling . Add a slurry of kuzu liquid 1 teaspoon kuzu to 1/4 teaspoon of water to the boiling sauce and stir until thickened turn the heat down and leave on low to keep warm.
Heat a tablespoon of coconut butter in a frying pan until hot and place your tofu into the hot oil turned and each side goes nice and crispy .
Add a little of your sauce to a shallow bowl and place your tofu on top. Add grated daikon and chopped green onion and grated ginger to garnish . If you like it a bit spicy add some schichimi spice
I recommend using a Japanese ginger grater to grate your daikon and ginger .
