Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Remove any dirt or debris from the beans. Soak for a few hours.
  2. Drain the beans and peel off the skins. Blend them to make a thick paste.
  3. Strain all the liquid (milk) from the ground paste.
  4. Bring the soy milk to a boil in a large pot, skimming off the froth.
  5. Slowly add the coagulant, then turn off the heat. Solid curds should form.
  6. Strain out the curds. Knead in any salt and spices, then let the curds drain in cheesecloth and solidify.
  7. Cut the solid curds into pieces, and fry until golden brown.
