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 will 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/ tauhu keras, washed & cut into triangles(basuh & potong segitiga)
  • 1 tsp salt/garam
  • 3 cups of oil for deep frying/minyak masak
  • 3 cloves of garlic/bawang putih, chopped finely
  • 4 tbsp light salty soy sauce/ kicap masin
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable stock/stok sayur or 1/2 tsp of stock powder diluted in 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp pepper/lada sulah

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!

1. Sapukan garam rata-rata di tauhu.
2. Panaskan minyak didalam periuk & gorengkan tauhu sehingga kekuningan. Angat & ketepikan.
3. Ambil 2 sb minyak dari gorengan tauhu tadi dan tuan di dalam kuali yang lain.
4. Tumis bawang putih sebentar sahaja....jangan sehingga terlalu kuning.
5. Tuankan kicap masin & stok.
6. Bila mendidih, masukkan lada sulah.
