Recipe Notes

Remove excess water from the tofu blocks so they don’t splatter too much when frying.

Of course, if you don't have tofu for whatever reason, you can use chicken.

Moyashi is a very versatile vegetable. You can use it as a side dish (goma-ae) among other things.

If you can’t find nira (garlic chives), you can use garlic cloves instead.
