Deep Fried Tofu recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 10 minutes

These easy, deep friend crispy tofu bites are the perfect starter to a curry. They are easy to make and are simple to cook. Serve them with hoisin sauce, as in this recipe, or with the sauce of your choice.


  • 1 x 350g pack firm tofu, drained
  • 3 tbsp. corn flour
  • Soy sauce
  • 2 spring onions
  • Hoisin sauce
  • Oil for frying


  1. Dice the tofu into cubes. Sprinkle with a few tbsp. of soy sauce so that it soaks into the tofu. Cover tofu with the corn flour so that it is thoroughly coated.

  2. Heat oil in a large saucepan. Fry the dredged tofu for 3-5 minutes on each side until crispy and golden brown. Remove from the pan and drain on kitchen paper to remove excess fat.

  3. Thinly slice the spring onions and sprinkle over the tofu and serve with hoisin sauce.

Sweet chilli sauce would be a delicious thing to serve with these tofu bites, as would mango chutney. Recipe serves 2.
