Fried Tofu

Ingredients

2 blocks tofu
3/4 cup tapioca starch
Oil for deep-frying
Salt, to taste
Hoisin sauce, to taste
Coriander or chopped green onions for garnish

Preparation

1
Cut tofu into blocks 1 x 1 x 2 inch pieces. Dredge each piece into tapioca starch until all surfaces are covered thoroughly. Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes.
2
Deep-fry 3 to 4 minutes at high heat until each piece is about three-quarters of the way done. Remove and drain on a rack or paper toweling. Just before serving, repeat dredging and deep-frying steps, only frying the pieces until golden brown and crispy. Salt lightly.
3
Slit each piece lengthwise and put Hoisin sauce into each slit to taste. Garnish with coriander or green onions and serve.
