Agedashi Tofu (揚げ出し豆腐) is soft tofu which is coated with potato starch and deep fried so that the outer shell is crispy. It is typically served with grated daikon, katsuobushi (bonito flakes), scallion, and grated ginger on top. Then Tsuyu (sauce) made of dashi, mirin, and soy sauce is poured over the toppings and soaks the tofu to enhance its flavor. If you like spicy, you can add shichimi togarashi to spice up the taste.
This unique appetizer is crispy on the outside and creamy and soft inside. Soaked in the savory sauce, the combination tastes amazing! This light yet savory dish is served piping hot, so be careful not to burn yourself.
Agedashi tofu is a popular appetizer menu at Izakayas and Japanese restaurants. It is actually not difficult to make if you don’t mind deep frying. Sometimes it’s hard to believe a delicious dish like this is easy and simple to make at home yourself.
