Which do you like better, normal tofu or 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.
Fried tofu is firm so it fits stir-fry or stew dish. I think there are many good recipe for fried tofu in your country too! I love to cook fried tofu with sweet soy-sauce flavoring.
But today is the day for miso! haha
