Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Press the tofu for at least 10 minutes. Then quarter.
  2. Place oil in the pan over medium heat. When it is hot, add the tofu a little at a time to avoid cooling the oil. Move the tofu gently to prevent it sticking to pan. [now you know why they supply chopsticks with Woks.].
  3. When tofu is crisp and golden brown on the outside, place on paper towels and let drain.
  4. Mix the grated radish and chopped onions together. Set aside.
  5. In a pan add the soy sauce and mirin to the dashi. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
  6. Arrange the tofu on serving platter and pour sauce on top. Top with the radish mixture.
  7. Serve.
