The second dish of this project(*) is “Ozasa Tofu”. Drain the Tofu and fried both side. Then boil dashi, shoyu and mirin in the pot for a while. Tear the tofu in four or five pieces by hand and put them in the pot. Boil until Tofu will absorb the flavor (at least five minutes) then pour the beaten egg over the cooked tofu before turn off the heat. Sprinkle sansho pepper over the tofu and enjoy!
The taste is something like Oyako-Don (chicken, onion and same dashi) or Katsu-Don(pork cutlet, onion and same dashi) but tofu is more healthy. This is very simple dish but liked it so much!
There is no specific amount of seasoning on the book (just ingredients and seasoning) so I tried following recipe.
Tofu : 300-350g / Dashi Stock 250cc / Shoyu 1 tbsp / Mirin 1tbsp / 2 beaten eggs/ Sansho pepper (option)
* Background / About “Hundred Delicacies of Tofu” – it’s originally published in 1782 and very popular among the people then. I found the book which was out almost ten years ago based on the original recipe and I was interested in the simple but unique tofu dishes. I try to cook based on the recipe but I may add some own twist if I have any idea. 😉 This is the story why I started the project and hope you all will like my journey together!
