Potato Starch, 1 kg bag

Potato starch is a finely textured, flourlike, gluten-free powder. It is commonly used to thicken sauces, stews, soups, custards, and puddings. It is also used  to thicken, texturize and increase crispiness in gluten-free baking recipes.

Weight: 1 kg

RECIPE: Crispy Salt and Pepper Tofu


  • 18 oz firm tofu drained
  • ½ cup Potato Starch
  • 1 tsp ground white pepper
  • ½ tsp table salt
  • Canola oil for frying

Optional garnishes:

  • 2 red chili pepper seeds removed and thinly sliced
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • Fresh ground black pepper


  • Place tofu block onto a cutting board. Place a second cutting board over tofu. Place a heavy object on top of the cutting board, preferably a heavy can. Apply the weight on the tofu for about 15-20 minutes, to release water from tofu.
  • Slice tofu into 1 inch cubes. Pat dry the tofu cubes with paper towel.
  • Add about 1 inch of oil to pan being used for frying. Bring to medium heat.
  • In a small bowl, combine Potato Starch, white pepper and salt. Add to a large ziploc bag. Add in tofu and seal bag. Shake bag several times until tofu is evenly coated in starch.
  • When oil is hot, add a few pieces of tofu and fry until crispy on all sides before removing.
  • Repeat with remaining tofu until all tofu is fried. Keep tofu waiting to be fried in the Potato Starch bag. If you lay down the tofu cubes to rest while waiting, they will release more water and will soak through the Potato Starch coating and cause it to fall off.
  • When tofu is fried, you can garnish with chili peppers, scallions and fresh ground black pepper.
