2 Ways Straining Tofu

Long Straining Option:

  1. Put the Tofu between a kitchen towel or paper towels and place the tofu between 2 plates,

  2. Afterward, add a heavy object (5 pounds) on the plates and let sit for 30-45 minutes.

  3. This will allow all the water to drain, which will then allow the Tofu to absorb all of the curry spices.


Quick Straining Option:

  1. Strain the Tofu with a cheesecloth but cutting the tofu into cubes

  2. Next, wrap the tofu the cheesecloth and strain the water out with enough pressure to strain but not crumble the tofu.
