  • 1 block of tofu
  • Kicap Manis sauce


  • Drain a block of tofu, then slice along the length to create two thinner slabs. Press carefully with kitchen towel to remove as much moisture as possible, then cut into six fingers.
  • On a clean plate, pour 2 tbsps of Kicap Manis, then tip on the tofus fingers and carefully turn them until they’re fully coated then leave to marinade for 1-2 hours.
  • Place carefully on a lightly oiled tray and bake in a hot oven (240C / 220C fan assisted / 475F) for 20-30 minutes until the glaze has darkened and cracked but is not burnt.
