Crispy Battered and Fried Tofu 0 Picture


  • 1/2 cup flour, divided
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper\
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup seltzer water
  • 1 lb extra firm tofu, cubed
  • oil, for frying



Step 1

1.In a shallow bowl, whisk 1/4 cup flour, cornstarch, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, cayenne, and baking soda. Place the remaining 1/4 cup flour in a separate, shallow bowl.

2.Fill a small pot with 2 inches of oil over medium heat until rippling. Dripping a small splash of water on the oil should cause the oil to snap and sizzle- this is how you’ll know it’s hot enough to begin frying.

3.Whisk the seltzer into the seasoned flour-cornstarch mixture.

4.Dip each tofu cube first in the plain flour, to coat, then dip in the flour-seltzer batter. Carefully drop the battered tofu cubes into the hot oil and let fry until golden-brown, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain. Serve immediately or the tofu will lose its crisp battered crust as it sits
