Tofu Katsu (30-min. Recipe)
Tofu Katsu. A delicious vegetarian tofu coated in a crispy panko breadcrumb exterior. The perfect vegetarian side dish for dinner or lunch.
- 420 grams tofu firm kind sliced into 1 cm thick pieces
- ¼+ ⅛ cup cornstarch
- 1 egg whisked
- ¾ cup panko breadcrumbs
- ⅓ cup oil
- Garlic powder
Slice your tofu vertically into 1 cm thick pieces. Pat dry each piece on both sides with paper towel. This is important or your coating will fall off.
Season each tofu steak with a sprinkle of salt and garlic powder on both sides.
Coat tofu steak into corn starch, then whisked egg, and lastly panko breadcrumbs. Make sure to coat all sides.
In a pan set over medium heat, add oil. Allow this to heat up. To test if it's hot enough, place a wooden chopstick into the oil and if bubbles form then it's ready for frying.
Fry 3 mins each side until golden brown. Enjoy with Tonkatsu or curry sauce.
