You Can Make Silken Tofu

I tried this and that to see if it was possible to make tofu with commercially available soy milk overseas.

If you can make Momen tofu, harder one, of course you can make silken tofu, softer one.

Soaking in Water

Depending on the density of the soy milk, you may need to increase the amount of bittern compared to the Japanese recipe. In this case, the process of soaking the tofu in water after steaming is very important. If the amount of bittern is too high, the steamed tofu will have a bitter taste. However, when the tofu is exposed to water, the bitterness is removed and delicious silken tofu is produced.

Use a Flat Container

The choice of container and the amount of soy milk added are also important.Use a container with an even depth, such as a mug. Also, don’t add too much soy milk, but not more than about 5 cm deep, as this will keep the tofu from collapsing and help release the goo.
