  • 12 grams Nigari (bittern) (30% Magnesium)

How to Make Make Silken Tofu

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 26 steps you must follow to make Make Silken Tofu in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • First, soak the soy beans in water. Wash the beans like when you wash rice for 2 to 3 times, and soak in 950 ml water for more than 10 hours.
  • Step 2
  • It takes longer in the winter than in the summer, When the surface of the beans is smooth when you break the beans, then it is ready.
  • Step 3
  • It will double in size and the round soy beans will expand to an oval.
  • Step 4
  • Blend into a puree. Add the leftover water from soaking in 2-3 doses in between.
  • Step 5
  • Once the the beans and water are well blended, add water for cooking and blend. This will smooth out any lumps.
  • Step 6
  • Heat the mixture in medium high heat. It will easily burn because it's a thick soy milk. So always keep mixing! Scoop out the bubbles too.
  • Step 7
  • When scooping out the bubbles, Ifeel like I throw out soy milk so I use a spatula, which reduces waste.
  • Step 8
  • When it starts to boil, turn down the heat to low and keep mixing for 8 minutes.
  • Step 9
  • Turn off the heat after 8 minutes. Prepare a bowl with a colander on top and cover it with a gauze.
  • Step 10
  • Pour the soy milk into the colander using a ladle. Wear rubber gloves to squeeze out the remaining beans from the gauze as it is extremely hot.
  • Step 11
  • Use tongs to squeeze out the water if you don't have rubber gloves. The liquid that seeps out is soy milk. The remaining gritty beans is okara !
  • Step 12
  • This is okara. You can use it for cooking.
  • Step 13
  • Strain the soy milk once more. The smooth texture is important for silken tofu!
  • Step 14
  • There should be about 700 ml of soy milk ready. The milk in the picture weighs 1200 ml but with the ingredients amount it will be about 700 ml.
  • Step 15
  • The amount of nigari needed is 1.1% of the soy milk but I prepare 1.5%. The amount in the picture is a little more than usual.
  • Step 16
  • Chill the soy milk in the refrigerator. Make sure to chill until it becomes cold ! If the soy milk is warm, it'll become hard when you add the nigari and you will mess it up.
  • Step 17
  • Fill a container with chilled soy milk.
  • Step 18
  • Add the nigari you measured carefully and mix it well slowly without making bubbles. Cover it with a wrap and set it on a steamer.
  • Step 19
  • Set the soy milk filled container on the steamer first and then turn on the fire. When it starts to boil and starts to steam, turn the fire into medium heat and steam for 20 minutes.
  • Step 20
  • The soy milk should be solid after 20 minutes. If the soy milk is not solidifying at this point, you probably didn't add enough nigari.
  • Step 21
  • If so, steam it a little more. Chill in cold water once it's done. Be careful not to break it!
  • Step 22
  • When it is well cooled, it is ready! Enjoy it however you like.
  • Step 23
  • If the tofu breaks after steaming, pour it in a gauze like in step 9.
  • Step 24
  • Although it won't be silken tofu, you've made colander tofu!
  • Step 25
  • Perhaps it's difficult to find soy beans abroad? Here's a comparison of beans that are GMO and non-GMO.
  • Step 26
  • If the germ is black, it is genetically modified. If it's white, it is not genetically modified.
