THICK DEEP-FRIED TOFU miso soup recipe

Which do you like better, normal tofu or deep-fried tofu?

I like both of them! Each one has good characters. Normal tofu’s texture is more smooth so it fits for eating raw such as Hiya-yakko which is chilled tofu topped with green onion and soy sauce.
Deep-fried tofu is firm so it fits stir-fry or stew dish. I think there are many good recipes for deep-fried tofu in your country too! I love to cook them with sweet soy-sauce flavoring.
But today is the day for miso! haha
