How To Make Crispy Tofu?
Making Crispy Tofu is very easy. Few basic steps to prep the Tofu and you will be surprised with the outcome.
- Always choose extra firm Tofu among other varieties. As the name says it is firm and easy to work with.
- I always soak tofu in lightly salted warm water for 15 minutes. This helps in to soften and season the tofu. (I do this even with Paneer- Indian Cottage cheese).
- Last but most importantly drain extra moister. Keep Tofu on a clean kitchen towel/ tissue. Cover it with another layer of tissue. Place some heavy weight on it, heavy enough to put little pressure and squeeze out extra water.
Tofu is an excellent source of protein ( In 100gms 8 gms of Protein) and it is dairy free too. You can also substitute tofu with Panner(Indian Cottage cheese), chicken or Shrimps and make this dish.
