How to make Tofu (Easy)
This is by far the easiest way of making tofu at home. Epsom salt is used as a coagulant and a bit of salt to flavor the bland tofu. I found this method through a YouTube gardening channel called OAG. This is a very informative channel on gardening and some simple home cooking too.

How To Make Tofu (with just soymilk, lemon and water!) | DIY
Make your own tofu at home with only soymilk, fresh lemon juice and water! Fresh, handmade tofu is so much better tasting than the store-bought stuff and super easy to make. And don't worry, it doesn't taste like lemons at all. You don't need anything special other than cheesecloth.
--LOOKING FOR SILKEN TOFU?--
This tutorial makes regular tofu. For silken tofu, also known as smooth tofu, click here:
Printable recipe for silken tofu:
Store bought soymilk usually contains a bunch of additives so you won't want to use that for this recipe. These additives can affect the PH of the milk and prevent coagulation. Use homemade soymilk or possibly brands that only contain soybeans, water and maybe salt. Soymilk is really easy to make too. Just check out this video:
You may have heard some rumours about soy, but this legume been consumed in China for centuries! Soy is one of the 5 Sacred Grains and is one of the most healthful sources of protein.
DIY TOFU RECIPE
Printable recipe here:
Makes about one 8.5oz block (250g)
About 5 cups plain soymilk (One batch of this recipe: [1180ml]
1/2 cup water [118ml]
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice [22ml]
Combine the water and lemon juice.
Separately, heat the soy milk to 160F (71C) in a large pot. Be sure to stir constantly to keep the soy milk from burning on the bottom. If you don't have a thermometer, you can bring it to a boil, then remove from heat and stir for 2-3 minutes to cool.
Remove the soy milk from heat and stir half of the lemon mixture into the soy milk for 1 or 2 minutes with a wooden spoon or spatula.
Stand the spoon or spatula straight down into the milk to cause the spinning motion of the milk to stop.
Add the rest of the lemon mixture and stir the spatula in a back and forth motion or a figure eight motion. The intent is to mix the lemon juice coagulant in thoroughly but gently.
After a minute or two, the soy milk should start to separate and curds will begin to form. Stop stirring and cover the pot with a lid.
Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
Afterwards, the soy milk will have completely separated into bits of soybean curd and liquid. The Liquid should be rather clear and yellowish. If it is still milky looking, it has not completely curdled. In that case, add a few drops of lemon juice and stir them in well.
Prepare a colander or sieve lined with a few layers of cheesecloth over a bowl, or use a steamer pot.
Ladle the soy curds into the cheesecloth.
Pull up the sides of the cloth to allow most of the water to drain out. Gather the sides of the cloth and twist at the top to squeeze out more water.
Untwist the cloth and re-wrap the curds so that it forms a loaf shape.
With the curds securely wrapped in the cheesecloth, place 5 to 10 pounds of weight on top. The more weight, the firmer your tofu will be. You want to press the curds evenly to force the water out. A cutting board with a few books on top would work well. Alternatively, use a tofu press device.
Let sit for 30 minutes to an hour.
Carefully unwrap the tofu and place in a bowl of very cold water. This will help the tofu firm up further.
Now it's ready to use! Otherwise, store it in water in the fridge for up to a week. It can also be frozen.
NOTE: Do NOT use sweet lemons for this recipe. They are lemons that are not sour and will not have the required acidity for this recipe.

How to make tofu from soy beans with a very common and easy to find ingredient -- rice vinegar or fresh lemon juice. That's the acid solution.
Correction: recommend simmer the soy milk for 15 minutes if you have considerations for trypsin inhibitor.
There are several commonly used coagulants in Chinese cuisine. The first group is salt coagulants (盐卤) including gypsum (石膏粉) and Nigari salts (In Sichuan cuisine we call this 胆巴). And the second group is Acid coagulants including GDL (葡萄糖内脂), mainly for super tender tofu and tofu pudding. But regular acid including rice vinegar or even lemon juice can help the soy milk becoming solid too. I demonstrate about how to make tofu with rice vinegar in this video. But other coagulants works too.

Ingredients required for making this Indian style tofu recipe- Serves 6
For marinating the tofu -
* Extra firm or firm tofu - 1 lb /454 gm
* garbanzo bean (chickpea) flour/besan - 1 teaspoon
* Kashmiri red chili powder / red chili powder/ paprika - 1/2 teaspoon
* Turmeric powder - 1/4th teaspoon
* Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
For the gravy -
* Onion - 205 gm/7oz/ 1 large or 2 medium/ 1 & 1/4th of a cup finely chopped
* Ginger - 2 inch by 2 inch / 48 gm/1.7 oz
* Garlic - 32 gm/1 oz/ 10 large cloves
* garbanzo bean(chickpea) flour - 1 tablespoon
* Cinnamon stick - 1 inch stick
* green cardamom (elaichi) - 2
* Dry bay leaf - 1
* Kashmiri Red Chili powder / paprika - 1 teaspoon. You can even use 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder or cayenne pepper instead. If you are new to Indian spices then please use less of Kashmiri red chili powder to start with. You can always add later.
* Curry Powder - 2 heaped teaspoons.
You can adjust the proportions of dry spices according to your preference.
* Canned crushed tomato - 1/2 cup. You can even use fresh tomatoes. Grate it and discard the skin or you can puree it in your blender. You need 1/2 cup of pureed tomato.
Alternatives to tomato - If you have any concerns in using tomatoes you can take a tablespoon of tamarind (imli), soak it in hot water and then squeeze out the pulp and use it. You can even use a teaspoon of tamarind concentrate. You can even puree red bell peppers in your blender. The taste will be bit altered in that case but you will get that red color. Or you can just increase the quantity of onions and sprinkle some lemon juice at the very end of cooking. If you are not on a vegan diet then you can use 2 tablespoons of plain unflavored yogurt in place of tomatoes.
* Coconut Milk (canned)= 10 tablespoons . If you are not on a vegan diet and not a fan of coconut milk, you can use 2 tablespoons of plain unflavored yogurt (curd) or few tablespoons of cooking cream.
* Salt - to taste
* Sugar - 1 teaspoon (optional)
* Oil - 3 tablespoons
* Butter - 1 tablespoon
Serve this tofu masala with hot steamed rice or roti or naan or pita bread.

How to make tofu from scratch | homemade recipe | ASMR cooking sounds
It's really easy to make tofu from scratch using soybeans and nigari!
I moved to a new channel! Feel free to check it out for more videos like this:
And the only way to experience a freshly made tofu is to try it at a tofu restaurant, or to make one yourself!
For different experience check this video with music:
A couple of notes:
Stirring while bringing soymilk to a boil is important as it sticks to the bottom of the pan like there is no tomorrow. It also goes from gently simmering to volcano eruption very quickly, so be careful. Cleaning Okara (a byproduct of soymilk), that sticks everywhere, is not how you want to spend your day.
Warm, freshly made tofu is amazing. Put only a little bit of weight if you are planning to eat fresh.
You can find Nigari (tofu coagulant) on Amazon or, sometimes, at your local Asian grocery. Different brands of nigari produce different results and tastes, so you might have to try different ones.
Don't use lemon instead of nigari. Unless you like lemon tofu.

4. Line a medium bowl with cheese cloth and pour the raw soya milk into the bowl and squeeze the soya milk through the cheese cloth to remove the pulp. (keep the pulp in the freezer, don’t throw it away!)
5. Gently bring the raw soya milk to boil in the large pot. Keep stirring. Once boiling bring the heat down and simmer for 5-10 minutes. You now have soy milk.
1. Leave the soya milk to cool for 10-15 minutes. In the meantime, add a small amount of cold water to Nigari, stir till it’s dissolved

How to make super CRISPY TOFU
Crispy baked tofu:
Crispy spicy tofu with a thick, sticky sauce:
Crispy orange tofu:
For this recipe you'll need:
• 250gr firm tofu
• 2tsp paprika powder
• 3tbsp cornstarch
• salt & pepper
• sunflower oil for frying
Start by pressing as much water out of the tofu as possible. If you have a tofu press, use that to press the whole block of tofu for 30 minutes and then cut it into bite size pieces. If you don't own a tofu press like me, cut the tofu into pieces first and then press them between a towel and cutting bord and put a heavy weight on top for 30 minutes. This way you can get way more water out of the tofu.
After the tofu has been pressed we'll add the toppings. Put the tofu in a bowl and add the cornstarch, the paprika powder and the salt and pepper and mix carefully until all the pieces are evenly coated. You can add any herbs you like at this point, I keep my seasonings really simple since I usually make a sauce to go with the tofu (see sauce recipes above).
Add a small layer of oil to a pan and heat this up until the oil is hot. When you put the tofu in the oil, the oil should start to bubble and that is when you know it's hot enough. If you put the tofu in the oil before it's hot, it won't get as crispy.
Fry the pieces for about 10 minutes on medium heat until the tofu is completely crispy (flipping the pieces after 5 minutes).
Once the tofu is done, take it out of the oil and let it leak out on a bit of kitchen paper towel. That's it! You can eat the tofu like this with some rice and veggies or make a sauce to go with it ( see recipe links for sauces above).

Chef's Favorite Tofu in Sweet and Sour Sauce • Taste Show
Masterchef John Zhang shares his favorite way to make tofu with step by step instruction as well as the sweet and sour sauce that goes well with tofu.
#tofu #sweetandsoursauce #chinesecooking
Tofu is a highly versatile and nutritious food that is made from soy. The first step in making tofu is soaking the soybeans and extracting the soy milk. The soya curds are then processed into tofu in the desired form, primarily in custard-like blocks. A variety of textures may be produced, depending on the water content.
The health benefits of tofu are extensive. It is gluten-free and low in calories.
Sweet and sour is a very popular sauce in Chinese cuisine, with many different ways to make it. Hawthorn slices are usually one of the key ingredients. Chef John shares another way to make it with tomato paste.
