OCHIKERON Recipe: Vegan Karaage (Soy MeatFried Chicken)

December 2023 (vol. 194)

Karaage (Japanese fried chicken) using soy meat chunks.
Very juicy, tasty yet delicious!

Difficulty: Very Easy 

Time: 40min (incl. marinating time)

Number of servings: 4 servings


  • 100g (3.5oz.) dried soy meat blocks
  • 2 tbsp. Katakuriko (potato starch)
  • Deep frying oil
  • Lemon wedges if preferred
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. sake
  • 1 tbsp. grated ginger
  • 1 clove grated garlic
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil


  1. In a boiling water, cook dried soy meat blocks for 4 minutes. Or as directed on its package. Wash well (change water for a few times) to remove the bad smell, then drain well.
  2. Mix the seasonings in a bowl and marinate the soy meat for about 30 minutes. Overnight is okay, longer makes them tasty.
  3. Drain lightly (do not squeeze out the marinade liquid), coat with Katakuriko in a plastic bag.
  4. Deep fry in oil at 180C (350F) until crisp golden brown.
  5. Serve with lemon wedges if you like.
