Aburaage/thin deep-fried tofu


Always douse with boiling water before using to remove excess oil from the surface. Thin deep-fried tofu (bottom of image) is used in soups, simmered dishes, mixed rice dishes and to prepare inari sushi, also called inarizushi (deep-fried tofu pouches stuffed with mixed vinegared rice). Preseasoned, thin deep-fried tofu is available packaged for easy-use, especially for inari sushi.
