Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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
