Gather all the ingredients.
Heat the oil to 350F (175C) in a deep fryer or medium saucepan. Coat the tofu with potato starch, leaving excess flour, and immediately deep fry until they turn light brown and crispy.
Tofu: If this is your first time making Agedashi Tofu, use medium tofu instead of soft tofu since it's easier to cook without breaking it. Once you're more comfortable making Agedashi Tofu and prefer silky tofu texture inside crispy outer layer of Agedashi Tofu, use soft tofu.
For vegetarian agedashi tofu, use kombu dashi.
