Secrets of Success

Tofu Success Without Deep Fat Frying




I love tofu in Asian restaurants but know that they deep fat fry the pieces. I asked a Chinese friend how her tofu comes out so perfect . She told me to drop the pieces into boiling water for a minute or two, then drain. Then fry the pieces with just a thin coating of oil in the skillet. Comes out perfect without the excess oil. The outside of the pieces are nice and crusty. I use firm tofu for this.

  • Just to let you know that I tried this and loved the outcome. The outside edges became very crusty and had more of a macaroni taste to them. - by HAWKTHREE
  • Thank you for this secret. I do mine in the skillet but never knew about the boiling water. I will be making this very shortly. - by HAWKTHREE
