Tofu Chips

September 16, 2010

I was browsing through Donna Hay's Autumn magazine...  it was described as tofu strips~ which of course much thinner than mine :) as part of a dish... but I had different ideas... as my tofu keeps breaking up, if I were to slice any thinner hence I decided to make these wonderful chips instead... 

It has that nice crunch with a hint of Chinese Five Spice after taste... everyone just could not stop munching on these wonderful Tofu Chips..
  • Firm tofu - cut into thick strips (about 1cm)
  • 3/4 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon chinese 5 spice
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • salt
  • oil for shallow frying

Mix the rice flour, 5 spice, salt and pepper in a bowl. Add tofu and gently toss to coat... shake excess and shallow fry until golden...

Best serve immediately...  :)


  1. How nice! And they look very crisp too.

  2. This is such an interesting concept - I never thought to use tofu for "fries"! They look delicious.

  3. Such an innovative idea! How'd you manage to get them so crispy?

  4. Tofu fries? Now, THAT would make anyone love tofu. Yum!

  5. Angie,
    have to have them immediately... leave it too long .. tofu chips will turn soggy..

    Thank you. :)

    Its the rice flour :) ... where I come from... we use rice flour batter(mix with a drop or two of a very diluted slaked lime)to deep fry banana, sweet potatoes, yam and cassava... and they are nice and crispy..:)

    Kids love these... :)
