Fried 'ankake' tofu a delicious side dish / JAPANESE HOME COOKING

Bookmark and Share
"ANKAKE" IS a dish where a thick sauce, called "an," is poured over various ingredients. Together the sauce and ingredients create a rich flavor.
"Ideally, the sauce should be smooth with a certain firmness," says Japanese cuisine expert Tatsuo Saito, who here offers a recipe for "agedashi-dofu," or deep-fried tofu.
An sauce also goes well with warm, fresh "yuba" (soy milk skin), boiled Chinese cabbage and pork or "tamagoyaki" (rolled omelet).

INGREDIENTS
(serves two)

* 1 silken tofu ("kinugoshi")
* 2 stalks green onion ("banno negi")
* 30 grams ginger
* For sauce: 300 cc water, 4 Tbsp sweet mirin sake, 50 cc soy sauce, 10 grams dried bonito shavings, 2 Tbsp each of "katakuriko" starch and water
* Oil for frying
* Katakuriko starch
* "Itohana" (thread-like) dried bonito shavings

METHOD

Quarter the tofu. Place on paper towel for 15 minutes to drain. Slice green onion and grate ginger.

To make the sauce, combine water, mirin and soy sauce in a pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Add dried bonito shavings, let it boil for a few moments, then turn off the heat. Strain through a paper towel placed in a sieve. Squeeze the paper firmly.

Mix starch with water. Return the above liquid in the pot and bring to a boil. While stirring constantly with a ladle that touches the bottom of the pot, add the starch mixture bit by bit. Mix for about 30 seconds at a boil. Remove from heat.

Dust all sides of the tofu with starch. Do not shake off excess starch. Add oil to pan and heat to 165 degrees (medium heat)--the temperature is right if bubbles rise. Place tofu in hot oil. Turn after 1 and a half minutes and fry for another 1 and a half minutes. Turn again and fry for 1 more minute until the surface has colored slightly and the oil bubbles have become smaller.

Place on a dish and pour a generous amount of sauce on top. Garnish with green onion, ginger and itohana bonito shavings.
