Crispy Baked Tofu (เต้าหู้อบกรอบ)

This is a healthier version if you want some crispy tofu.

Honestly though, it takes so long to make. If you don’t have the time (and are not THAT concerned about deep-fried food), then just deep fry the bloody thing!

Makes: roughly 2 cups crispy tofu

What you need

  • 400 g Firm tofu
  • 1 Tbsp Sesame oil
  • Salt

Dipping sauce

  • Thai sweet chilli sauce
  • Peanuts, roasted and crushed

How to put this together

  1. Drain the tofu of the liquid it comes in.
  2. Place double layer paper towel on a plate.
  3. Put tofu block on top, put another sheet of paper towel on top, followed by a chopping board, and some weights to squeeze out the water. Leave for 30 mins.
  4. Heat oven to 200 C
  5. Cut tofu into 1 inch cubes. Sprinkle with a few pinches of salt.
  6. Drizzle sesame oil over the cubes, and gently coat them evenly.
  7. Line a baking tray with parchment paper, and place tofu cubes on top
  8. Bake for 30-40 mins, flipping every 10 mins.
  9. To make dipping sauce – simply sprinkle crushed roasted peanuts on top of Thai sweet chilli sauce
  10. Serve crispy tofu cubes with dipping sauce, or use it in other recipes
