Agedashi-tofu 揚げ出し豆腐 – deep fried tofu with dashi

Tonight my wife prepared a white stew with a side dish of agedashi-tofu, my favourite dish.  It is a big block of tofu in tempura batter deep fried, then presented with a sauce made of dashi and soy sauce.  I like it because the tofu makes you feel like you are eating healthy, but the batter and the sauce give that nice kick of cholesterol, fat and salt.

The translation is straightforward as you would expect.  AGE means fried, DASHI is the dashi sauce and TOFU is tofu.
