How to make tofu at home?
To make tofu you do need calcium sulfate is required to thicken. However, calcium sulfate is available in the form of citric acid to make tofu from soybean milk. When we make soy cheese using soybean milk the resultant product is hard and very delicious.
We will utilize 2 liters of soybean milk to make tofu. Place soybean milk in a pan and heat it.
After that, turn off the flame when soybean milk is prepared. Let it cool for some time and lower the temperature to 70-80 degrees. In the meantime, soak the tatri in 1 tablespoon lukewarm water.
Then, mix the citric water with soybean milk and stir 1-2 times. You don’t have to stir regularly.
After 15-20 minutes the milk will
thicken, and we will be clever enough to observe water separating from it. If
you observe that the process didn’t occur perfectly, do add some more citric
solution to it. Then sieve the entire mixture.
When the milk and the water separates, use a clean cloth and spread it over a strainer and pour the milk over it. You will have the tofu on the cloth and the water will strain down into the bowl.
After that, tightly squeeze the cloth and by folding it from both ends and then place a heavy object over it so that excess water can be strained easily.
Let it remain as it is for 30-40 minutes – so that you can get a great shape. After that, you can use it as per your desire. It tastes better than normal cheese and has better nutrients than cheese.
