Deep Fried Tofu - A Crisp Japanese Starter and CLICK -Spring/Autumn

Mango season is just a week away. Iam waiting for the Ripe Sweet Yellow Mangoes. Here is a small Manga Tale..

Manga's with their Senior

Small Raw Mango, called as Vadumanga in Tamil, along with its Senior Raw Mango, with a back shot of where they came from. Picturised from our terrace.

Small Mango : Senior, see my friends in our Tree are asking us to come back. Shall we go?

Senior Mango : No day they will come here to join us. till then we shall wait here.

Do you feel any other conversation apart from this?
Now this small tale telling picture has to go for Click Spring/Autumn hosted by Bee and Jai.


Fried Tofu

I got this recipe from Here. These Deep Fried Tofu are called as "Tofu no Otoshiage". the recipe call's for some Fish. but i tried it with Tofu and Leek, which is called as Negi in Japan.



Tofu- 50 gms (Shredded)
Leek/Negi - 2tbsp ( Finely Chopped)
Salt - a pinch
Egg - 1 Beaten (little is enough)
Corn Flour - 2 tsp


Mix all the ingredients togeather. Add beaten egg a little, so that you can shape the Tofu in a ball shape. shape the tofu's like ball's. Heat the oil in a pan, and deep fry them in slow flame.
now the crispy, tasty, instant japanese starter is ready in a jiffy.

Eggless Version: ( From Sathya )

add gram flour, green chilli's and little chilli powder to the crumbled tofu, wrap them up with bread crumbs and fry till they turn golden colour in slow flame.

Fried Tofu - Japanese Starter

I really loved these sinfull deep fried tofu ball's. it was crispy in outer and spongy inside. Leek certainly added a difference. Now this is my entry for A.W.E.D - Japan. event started my DK.

  23. Hi Lavi,
    I started visiting ur blog for few receipes and its today i tried Deep fried Tofu. It came out very well. I just modified the receipe a bit by adding gram flour,green chillies, chilli powder and bread crumbs and thereby avoided egg. It was a big hit in my family though they never liked to have tofu. I saw ur coconut sambar receipe too. Would try very soon n would post u regarding that. Your receipes are good and keep going!!!!


  24. Hi Sathya..

    Great to hear from you, loved your veg version, will try it and will update your recipe twist.
    Glad that your family liked it.

    Do try Coconut Milk Sambhar, the mild taste and different aroma will make you fall in love with it. Keep Visiting!
