  • 2 Tubes Egg Tofu
  • 3-4 TBsp Corn flour
  • 200 ml Oil
  • Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • 1 Thai Lime
  • 1 Sprig Parsley Optional



  1. Use a sharp knife to cut the tofu roll into half at the centre of the tube. Then, squeeze out the tofu gently from each ends.

  2. Cut the tofu tube into 1.5 cm thickness, and gently pat dry with a kitchen towel.

  3. Place the cornflour on a plate. Coat the tofu with the cornflour and shake off the excess flour and set aside.


  1. In a wok, heat up the 200ml of oil over medium heat. When it bubbles, add in the coated tofu to fry.

  2. Gently flip over a few times until golden color (about 3-4 mins). Fry the tofu in batches of 3-5. Do not overcrowd the wok.

  3. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen towel to absorb the excess oil

  4. Transfer tofu to a serving plate. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve hot with Thai sweet chilli sauce and Thai lime. Serve hot

Top Tips


  1. For Thai Chilli sauce, I recommend the 'Chicken' Brand that you can get from NTUC.
  2. For deep-fried tofu, you must get the egg tofu. Plain silken tofu will not turn golden and crispy and it tends to disintegrate easily.


  1. Coating the egg tofu with cornflour not only make it crispy, but also prevents the oil from splattering during the frying process.
  2. You will need to shake off the excess flour  before frying, otherwise the loose flour on the outer layer will fall out and gets burnt causing the oil to turn black, making the tofu black as well.
  3. You can also make your own Thai chilli sauce. Please look out for an upcoming recipe on how to make Thai Chilli Sauce.
