Sara's Fried Tofu


Tiffany wants to know what kind of tufu I like, I buy the bulk stuff at Noah's, it's like $1.29 per piece. I like the way it holds its shape and remains firm. It also has a certain nice taste to it.

basically I make a base of: (add each to taste, but don't add too much
olive oil or the mixture won't stick to the tofu)
-sesame seed oil (a bit more than olive oil)
-olive oil (a little bit)
-tamari (enough to turn it brown)
-balkan style plain yogurt (about 2-3 Tbs.)

whisk together and add the rest according to your taste
-ground* cumin
-ground* anise (don't add too much, it's almost minty)
-ground* coriander seeds (go nuts!)
-ground* rosemary (if you add too much, it gets bitter)
-ground* tumeric
-ground* mustard seed (add very little, will get spicy without flavour)
-ground* (weird oblong seed who's name i can't recall, often in bagels)
-ground* pepper
-salt (don't add too much, tamari has mucho salt)

(*try to ground using a mortar and pestle, grinding all the seeds together) If you have fresh cilantry/cilantro, add some of it (don't use a knife to cut it!) and mash it up with the seeds.

Cut tofu into slices about 0.8cm thick and about 1" squared. Whisk the mash of the marinate and put in tofu pieces to mix. The mixture should be brown/yellow. Leave in fridge for a while (overnight or 45 minutes).

fry it up in a bit of hot oil. The tofu should get puffy and brown when done. If you want to make it taste better, heat the oil and add some of the whole seeds into the hot oil to enhance the taste.
