Agedashi Tofu Recipe


  1. Cut the tofu in half, and press between half sheet pans or flat plates for 15 minutes between paper towels to remove as much moisture as possible
  2. Meanwhile, finely chop green onion and grate daikon
  3. Add dashi, soy sauce and mirin to a pot and bring to a boil Adjust to taste.
  4. Make sure the tofu is dry! Then cut into 8 even pieces, or desired size.
  5. Coat each tofu piece in a layer of potato starch.
  6. Heat enough oil to submerge your tofu pieces and fry at 350F until crispy.
  7. Add tofu to a bowl, add toppings, then the broth at the last second to keep it crispy until you're ready to serve.
