Here's a tofu recipe with a subtle flavour. It is also very easy and quick to prepare.
Serves 2 as a starter.
150 g tofu, cut into 6 equally sized pieces
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
6 tablespoons tempura flour
5 tablespoons water
1 pinch salt
2 kaffir leaves, very thinly sliced
20 g lemongrass, very thinly sliced
Oil, for frying
Marinate the tofu in sesame oil and soy sauce for about 10 minutes.
In the meantime, prepare the batter by mixing the ingredients thoroughly.
Drain the tofu, then coat with the batter and fry at 170°C for about 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper.
Serve with a sweet and sour cucumber relish.
