Remember These Points

If you’re using dried soy meat chunks, then before following step 1 below, rehydrate them in a bowl of water for 30 min to an hour and drain as well as squeeze finely.



  1. Mix ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sake, sesame oil in a bowl and add the soy meat chunks into the bowl. (If you’re using dried soy meat, check the tip above.)
  2. Add some potato starch and make sure everything is coated well.
  3. Deep fry at medium temperature until golden.
  4. Serve with vegan mayo sauce and enjoy the savour of it.
