Gammodoki

Gammodoki is Japanese traditional deep-fried tofu cake. It’s good to eat with soy sauce and cook with dashi.

  • soy sauce 1 tablespoon
  • brown sugar 1 tablespoon

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Wrap the tofu in kitchen paper and place it on a deep dish.
  • Put the water in a small pot and put it on top of the tofu. Let it sit for 10 minutes and let the water out of the tofu. (This is called draining of tofu.)
  • Put the drained tofu in a bowl and mash it well with a spatula or something similar.
  • Put the seasonings in a bowl and mix well.
  • Put the hijiki in hot water and drain. Chop the other ingredients.
  • Put the ingredients in the bowl with others and mix well.
  • Shape to the size you like. With a diameter of 4 cm and a thickness of 2 cm you can make about 20 pieces.
  • Heat the oil to 160 degrees Celsius.
  • Fry until the surface is golden brown. Drain the oil with kitchen paper.
  • Serve and it’s ready! Can be frozen and preserved.
NOTES
Sometimes I make a batch of gammodoki, satsuma-age and fried tofu and freeze them. It is convenient to freeze them so that they can be quickly added to stews and other dishes.
I buy tofu at an Asian market. Regular supermarkets also sell tofu, but Asian markets sell it cheaper and of higher quality.
In addition, Morinaga's Filled Tofu is also sold.
The one on the left side is a very hard tofu. Even when drained, almost no water comes out. Taking advantage of this feature, I cut it to slices and make fried tofu of it.
The right side is the same as the Japanese silken tofu. I drain off the water and use it in dishes such as Japanese tofu dressing.
When I cook gammodoki, I mix the two types together.
