Cooking Tofu
    #4506704 - 08/07/05 01:13 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

OK, so I got this curry tofu. I want to cut it up into chunks and cook it to munch on. How do I cook it so it will not be over done or underdone? I've never cooked tofu before.

you basically heat tofu in order for flavor to permeate, it's already cooked. Hopefully it's the firm/extra firm variety which holds up better to that type of cooking. although it can't overcook in the traditional sense, softer tofu can disintegrate or in the opposite extreme of the spectrum become dry and rubbery (unless you deep fry, in which case its a desired trait.) deep frying by the way is the only way i'll eat tofu, that or in a shake. not a big fan of the stuff but it is good for you. :grin:

If you freeze your tofu overnight before cooking it you can alter the texture to make it a bit different... I'd say more 'meat-like,' but thats not quite it. Maybe its more like processed chicken patties or something like that, hard to put my finger on, but its not the same as just stir/deep frying straight out. Something for you to play around with.

A good trick is to braise it like this:

Take some firm tofu and water and soy sauce and a sprig of fresh rosemany and bake for an hour at 325, 30 minutes on each side (but flip it a few times). The water should only half way come up the edges of the tofu. You can do the same with tempe. Also you can add curry powder to the liquid, or some sugar, or anything.

Then blend up a mango with some wasabi and a bit of lime juice and sesame oil and cilantro and you get a great sauce. It's then good in bread with some greens or plain for dipping.
