Thai Fried Tofu - What A Great Starter!

Fried Tofu or Tau Hu Tod when done properly is really nie and light. This is a good starter dish to guide your palate into the more delicious tastes to come from your main courses. If you happen to visit a Thai Chinese Restaurant, just ask for Tau Hu Tod for something tasty and healthy at the same time.
