Non-fried Agedashi Tofu with Firm Tofu

Non-fried Agedashi Tofu with Firm Tofu

This is a healthy pan-fried agedashi tofu.
It tastes just like it has been deep fried!
I made it with firm tofu, so it won't fall apart when you flip it over.

Ingredients: amount you can make with a block of tofu

Firm tofu
1 block
as needed
Vegetable oil
as needed
Grated daikon radish
to taste
Green onions (chopped)
to taste
Pouring Sauce
100 ml
Mentsuyu (3x concentrate)
2 tablespoons
2 and 1/2 tablespoons
Dashi stock granules
1/4 teaspoon


1. [Make the sauce] Put all the pouring sauce ingredients in a pot. Bring to a boil, then turn off the heat.
2. ※ You can also make the pouring sauce by putting all the ingredients for the sauce in a heatproof container, and microwaving it at 600W for a minute and half.
3. Wrap the firm tofu with a paper towel and let it rest for a while before draining. Then cut the tofu into your preferred size.
4. Pour a generous amount of vegetable oil into a frying pan. Coat the pieces of tofu with katakuriko on all sides, and place in the frying pan.
5. Make sure the pieces of tofu aren't touching each other. Flip the pieces over and fry both sides over medium heat (you can fry all sides if you like).
6. Remove from the heat when the firm tofu gets crispy on the surface, and transfer them to a bowl.
7. Pour the sauce from Step 1 over the tofu. Top with drained grated daikon radish and green onions.
