    PinkCherryBlossom's Note:

    I love this dish, Depending on how I'm feeling i either use egg or sweet chili sauce to coat the tofu prior to covering with the panko. My favourite sauces to serve with it are Wasabi Herbed Mayonnaise and Tonkatsu Sauce. Prep/cooking time does not include draining time!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (250 g) package firm tofu (cotton or silken)
    • 1 egg, beaten



    1. 1
      Open the tofu slice into cubes or slabs depending on preference; wrap in kitchen towel.
    2. 2
      Try to get as much water out as you can by changing the towels when they are damp. The tofu needs to be as dry as possible for this recipe.
    3. 3
      Coat the tofu with egg or sweet chili sauce depending on which you are using and then roll in the panko gently patting the breadcrumbs on.
    4. 4
      Fry until crisp and golden brown.
    5. 5
      Drain on kitchen towel and serve with your choice of sauce.

      I really like the crunchiness the Panko crumbs gave to the tofu. One tip I read on another site is to cut your tofu then bake on a greased cookie sheet at 375 for about 15 minutes. This dries it out a bit and gives it a really nice chewy texture. That is what I did here, baked it, let it cool then dipped in the sweet chili sauce and the crumbs then fried. Yummy!

      I loved it. I used beech smoked tofu and it worked deliciously. Thank you for the dip recommendation too, it worked beautifully with the crispiness. I'm not a big fan of tofu but this recipe might have changed my mind!
