Easy "Agedashi" Tofu with Atsuage

Easy "Agedashi" Tofu with Atsuage

You don't have to fry the tofu.
Instead of agedashi, I used the kind of tofu that's already fried to make it quick and easy.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Atsuage
1 pack
●Water
100 ml
●Mentsuyu
50 ml
●Mirin
1 tablespoon
Katakuriko dissolved in water
1~2 teaspoons
Oil
a small amount

Steps

1. Pour a modest amount of oil into a frying pan. (If you are using a Teflon frying pan, then you don't have to use oil) Cook all sides till they are golden brown.
2. Once all sides are golden brown and crispy, add in the ● ingredients, and then finally the katakuriko dissolved in water. Once it thickens, it's ready.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made this because it's a pain to have to fry tofu normally.
By using atsuage instead, the flavor is locked in properly.
