Frozen Tofu Kara-age with Shio-Koji

Just can't get enough of the garlic aroma!! These taste just like chicken kara-age. You won't be able to stop eating them. This recipe is macrobiotic, and is also low calorie, so great for those on a diet!

Ingredients: 4 servings

Firm tofu
1 block
Shio-koji (salt-fermented rice malt)
1 tablespoon
1 clove
1 knob
Soy sauce
a small amount
to taste
as needed
Olive oil
to taste


1. Defrost the frozen tofu. It should take about half a day to naturally defrost.
2. Gently use your hand or a weight to press down on the tofu to drain it. Well-drained tofu makes for a better texture.
3. Combine all of the seasoning ingredients into a container. Use your hands to break off pieces of the frozen tofu and have it absorb the seasoning ingredients.
4. Let it marinate for a while. Gently squeeze the tofu, then coat in katakuriko and fry.
5. If you tilt the frying pan, you can even fry them with a small amount of oil.
