Agedashi tofu is a traditional dish that is offered at traditional Japanese restaurants and Japanese family restaurants.
What is Agedashi tofu?
Agedashi tofu is a dish that is fried with tofu and seasoned with soup stock or soy sauce.
There are ones that are fried by sprinkling potato starch on tofu, and ones that are fried by sprinkling wheat flour.
This is due to personal food preferences and home traditions.
The major differences between potato starch and wheat garments are the lack of oil after frying, the texture of the garment, and in the case of potato starch, when the hot soup is poured and a little time is left, a moderate thickening is produced in the soup.
