Braised tofu with seasoned sauce/ 두부조림 / 焖豆腐



Housewives in Korea, they may braise the tofu with soy bean sauce or red pepper sauce.
Today, I braised it with red pepper sauce and tomato sauce......

在韩国,主妇们会用酱清或辣椒酱焖豆腐。 今天,我是用了辣椒酱和蕃茄酱来做这一道菜。。。

                             
Put the tofu and corn starch in the plastic bag,  shake it, this is the easy way to coat the tofu with corn starch...

将豆腐和淀粉放在塑胶袋里, 轻轻的上下摇动,那豆腐就很容易沾上淀粉。。。


Dip fry the tofu until crispy...
