Deep Fried Tofu drizzled with Soy Sauce

To make sure my kids don't go hungry at school during this fasting month, I thought Tofu in Soy Sauce would make them happy and full. A good dose of good protein in tofu is the answer, and a dash of light soy sauce gravy to soothe the palate - so early in the morning!


  • 4 pieces of hard tofu, washed & cut into triangles
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups of oil for deep frying
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
  • 4 tbsp light salty soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable stock or 1/2 tsp of stock powder diluted in 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp pepper

  1. Flavour the tofu with salt.
  2. Fry in hot oil, heated in a pan until golden brown. Remove & drain. Put aside.
  3. In a separate pan, prepare the soya gravy by heating 2 tbsp of oil, taken from the same oil used to fry the tofu.
  4. Sautee the garlic on medium heat very briefly without browning it.
  5. Pour in the soy sauce & stock.
  6. When the liquid boils, flavour with pepper.
  7. Fantastic when served while hot! I love to eat this with fresh sprigs of spring onions!
