Crispy Fried Japanese Tofu With Soya Sesame Dip


This whole theory to healthy eating has been twisted and messed up massively. Everyone has his, her or its theory to what is healthy or not. Seriously, the more you listen to others, the more confused you will be. I know. Additionally, I realise that those who are overly healthy seem kicking their buckets faster than anybody else. How? How come then the healthy theory didn't work? Only god knows, as far as nava-k is concern, she believes that exercising is part of healthy living, also, when food is a concern, mushroom (Fried Mushroom Rolls, Mint Mushroom Burger, Stir Fried Mushroom Mutton & Mushroom Soup), tofu (Spicy Tofu Curry), fish (Assam Fish Curry & Curry Leaves Grilled Salmon) and vegetables (Spinach Tomato Soup, Cucumber Yogurt Salad, Turmeric Tomato Soup & Bitter Gourd Potato Curry) are the safest bet. Most probably.


I thought I might as well speak on healthiness because Japanese egg tofu is one we should salute. Healthy, what else. Obviously too, I try to incorporate tofu into our meals (Mushroom Tofu Soup), today ladies and gentlemen, I am going to share on using Japanese egg tofu for a crispy fried snack or can be regarded as a side dish for our rice meals. Of course, why not? After all, there is no right and wrong with us Malaysians who can paired rice with almost anything under the sun. Now, coming to the recipe, what I did was I coated Japanese tofu (Japanese Braised Radish, Japanese Sauteed Eggplant & Japanese Lotus Root Tofu Soupover breadcrumbs tossed with spring onion, then fried (Crispy Fried Okra) and paired alongside some Japanese soy sauce with some roasted white sesame seeds. This is definitely my Malaysian style Crispy Fried Japanese Tofu With Soy Sesame Dip. Crunch in everyone, I'll see you again the next time. Take care.

Ingredients
1 packet (150g) Japanese egg tofu - remove from packet and slice into pieces
1 cup breadcrumbs
2 sprigs spring onion - shredded
Salt (if needed) and pepper for taste

For the dipping sauce
2-3 tbsp Japanese soya sauce
1/2 tbsp roasted sesame seeds
A pinch of sugar

Method
Mix breadcrumbs with spring onion, salt and pepper.
Roll tofu one by one and deep fry till golden brown in color.


Combined the ingredients for the sauce and serve together.
Show some love by trending alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!

  3. I have also heard of the ideal Japanese Women fact or should I say myth :-)!! It is very sweet of you to share your personal experience very candidly, appreciate it Nava!! Not many people can do that in a public medium for sure!! Oh my respect for you just doubled!
    The fried Tofus look super crunchy(thx to breadcrumbs!) and very inviting, the floating roasted sesame seed is a actually good idea!!

    And this line is true, no matter which country the Man belongs to - "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach" :-)

  14. I don't know about Japanese women but I am sure Punjabi women are very caring and always put their husbands and children first. Like Dhanish I appreciate your guts of sharing your personal experience on the blog.I have been reading your blog from quite a while and I know you have that honesty and straightforwardness which I like about you.
    Although I am not a big fan of tofu but deep fried and crunchy makes it drool worthy and I am happy to taste.
