Salt and pepper tofu recipe
600g sliken firm or firm tofu
1 TBSP black and white peppercorn
1 TBSP sea salt
2 TBSP whole meal flour
2 TBSP corn flour
neautral oil for frying
Drain the tofu lightly by let stand on tilted chopping board for 10 to 20mins.
Pound the peppercorns with salt in a mortal and pestle
or place pepper and salt in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin over the bag.
Add the whole meal and corn flour and mix very well. If you don’t mix well in this stage, your tofu won’t have even taste. Some parts are salty some part are tasteless…
Toss tofu lightly in a flour mixture and shake away excess. Heat oil in a frying pan over high heat. When oil is hot, deep fry tofu, a few pieces at a time, until it is golden. Drain tofu on absorbent paper.
To serve, place tofu in serving plate with chopped chilli, coriander and lime.
For gluten free version, instead of whole meal flour you can use corn flour or potato flour. They are both very nice. I actually like potato flour and rice flour mixture the best!
You can simply use black pepper corn only but personally I like to use mix of several types of peppercorns. You can purchase mix of pepper corns jar at shops or supermarkets
