Fried Bean Curd

Fried tofu (bean curd) is an ingredient used in many Asian dishes

Deep fried tofu (bean curd) has a crisp, golden brown outer skin and is used in many Asian dishes, including soups, hot pots, stir-fries and braised dishes. Most tofu can be fried except for the softer variety.  Sushi chefs season the fried bean curd and use them as wrappers for inarizushi (see "sushi").

Fresh fried bean curd is available in the seafood department and canned in the grocery department.
