Ingredients: 2 servings

Tofu Balls
Firm tofu
1/2 block
Ground pork
100 g
Fresh okara
100 g
Onion
1/3
Salt
1/2 teaspoon
Katakuriko
1 tablespoon
Chicken soup stock granules (or Weipa)
1/2 teaspoon
Sesame oil
1 teaspoon
Sweet Vinegar Sauce
Water
100 ml
Soy sauce
4 tablespoons
Sugar
3 tablespoons
Vinegar
3 tablespoons
Katakuriko Slurry
Katakuriko
2 tablespoons
Water
2 tablespoons

Steps

1. Put all of the ingredients for the sweet vinegar sauce into a pot and turn on the heat. When the vinegar starts to jump out of the pot, it's done! Turn off the heat and add the katakuriko slurry.
2. Thoroughly drain the moisture from the tofu. Mince the onion.
3. Put all of the ingredients for the tofu balls into a bowl.
4. Mix together well. Mix until the meat, tofu, and okara are firmly stuck together!
5. Form into bite-sized balls. If they are too sticky and it's difficult to form into balls, put a little bit of oil in the palm of your hands.
6. Deep-fry them in 180°C oil. When the balls float to the surface and are golden brown (as seen in the photo), take them out and coat them with the sweet vinegar sauce.
7. Arrange on a plate and they're done!
