Chinese Laundry Fried Tofu


  • Firm tofu 1 piece - diced into 1.5 inch ~ 2 inch cubes
  • Thai chilis, chopped
  • Garlic - minced
  • Scallions - chopped thin
  • Cilantro - chopped to personal preference
  • Chinese Laundry Dan Dan Sauce - 1.5 tbsp or to your liking


Tofu can be fried either in an airfryer, or in a pan. 

For airfrying, simply coat all sides of the tofu cubes in oil, air fry for 12 minutes, or until golden crispy, turn the tofu once in between. 

For pan frying, make sure to season your pan first to avoid sticking by coating the pan while it’s really hot with oil. Pan fry the tofu cubes on all four sides until golden crispy. 

Once the tofu is done, simply throw in the minced garlic, chopped chilis, scallions, and cilantro, add Dan Dan Sauce, and toss everything together! It’s that easy!
