Gobi Manchurian, Tofu Triangles, Stir-Fry, Jasmine Rice

Dinner 4/05

Gobi Manchurian

Tofu Triangles


Jasmine Rice

As most of you know, we stopped posting stir-fries a few years back -- mostly because of their ubiquity -- and I also ran out of novel ways of plating them. ;)

But, I thought this one was different enough.

The Gobi Manchurian, is a riff on this recipe. Basically a tempura-like batter with a spicy tomato-based sauce to accompany.

The Tofu Triangles were tea-smoked, marinated in 1 tbs. gin and 1 tbs. tamari, tossed with cornstarch to coat and and deep-fried for 3-4 minutes at 375F until golden brown and puffy.

For the stir-fry we made a quick garlic sauce: garlic, ginger, tamari, rice wine vinegar, lime juice, hoisin and a cornstarch slurry to thicken, which went over the carrot, red bell pepper, broccoli and shiitake mushrooms.
