Serves: 8


  • 450 gram (1 pound) okara (soy bean pulp from making soy milk)
  • 1 block firm tofu, crumbled into tiny bits
  • 3-4 teaspoon Japanese dashi stock granules, or use chicken/beef/vegetables stock
  • 6 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup katakuriko (potato starch), or use cornstarch/tapioca starch


  1. Heat about 3 inches of oil in a wok/pot for deep frying. Once the oil reaches 180 Celsius (360 Fahrenheit), it is ready for deep frying tofu nuggets.
  2. Mix together all ingredients in a mixing bowl, take about 3-4 tablespoon of mixture and shape into patties, then carefully drop in the hot oil and fry until golden brown. Repeat until all mixture is used up.
  3. These nuggets are delicious as is, but they are also great with some tomato ketchup, mayonnaise, and chili sauce.
