fried tofu snack


Chilli Garlic Tofu Snack is just a name I use to describe this dish because I am unaware whether there is an original name to this dish. Just like the Ikan Bilis Snack, this is another one of those easy to cook yet delicious food. And extremely affordable too.


The garlic gives this dish an aromatic flavour whilst the use of chilli and white pepper powder gives this dish a slight spiciness to it. If you intend to serve this dish to kids, just omit the use of chillis and white pepper powder. It tastes just as great. Try it will ya?


This is my recipe for Chilli Garlic Tofu Snack


  • 2 pieces of firm tofu (cut into small slices)
  • 4 cloves garlic (chopped)
  • 1 to 2 pieces red chilli (remove seeds and chopped finely)
  • 4 tablespoons cooking oil (palm oil)


  • At least one heaped teaspoon of sugar (or to taste)
  • At least one teaspoon of dark soya sauce (or to taste)
  • A pinch of salt
  • a couple of dashes of white pepper powder



Heat oil and fry tofu till golden brown and crisp using high heat. Remove fried tofu and discard oil.


The wok should still be coated with oil at this moment. Add garlic and chilli and saute till aromatic. Return fried tofu to the wok, add seasoning and stir well to coat evenly prior to serving.

    I just made this recipe. It is a delicious and quick way to enjoy tofu. The crunchy quality of the fried tofu works well with the sweet and sour sauce. Nice one!
