Fried Tofu Buffalo Wings Style

  • Slice the tofu into 1/2" x 1/2 " thick into sticks. Then dip in cornstarch first then dip in beaten eggs and roll in bread crumbs pressing the sides gently to help the breadcrumbs stick on the tofu.
  • In a deep pan, heat cooking oil deep enough to deep fry the tofu. Fry the tofu until golden brown.
  • Remove from the oil and put in colander to drain excess oil. Set aside.
  • In an empty pan or wok, heat butter until melted and saute garlic until fragrant. Then add ketchup, hot sauce and calamansi juice.
  • Stir until the ingredients are well mixed. Simmer for a minute and add in the fried tofu. Toss the tofu until well coated with the sauce.
  • Serve hot and enjoy!
