Banrai Nigari Liquid For Your Tofu-making If you want to make fresh tofu, you will need both Banrai Nigari Liquid as well as Banrai Soymilk (sold separately). Nigari is a mineral-rich residual liquid that remains after salt is extracted from sea water, and it plays as a natural coagulator in making authentic fresh tofu. A bag of Banrai Nigari Liquid contains eight individual packets that makes it convenient to measure the ratio when making tofu along with Banrai Soymilk.
A packet of Banrai Nigari is good for 1/2 cup (125 ml) of Banrai Soymilk to make fresh tofu - which means you will need eight packets of Banrai Nigari for a whole pack (1000 ml) of Banrai Soymilk.
Making Fresh Tofu at Home using a Donabe Banrai Nigari is an essential ingredient to make fresh tofu in a donabe. You can make a large amount of tofu to serve as a communal style, or use a small, individual-sized donabe for your breakfast. Here are the suggestions for different size of doanbe.
Once the soymilk is very hot (about 180 - 185F/ 80 - 85C degrees) but before the center starts simmering (about 3 - 5 minutes), turn off the heat. Meanwhile, stir gently a couple of times to make sure the even heat distribution.
Cover with lid and let it sit for 10 - 15 minutes. Enjoy with your choice of condiments.
(For a larger size - 2 cups/ 500 ml or more)
Heat the soymilk in a donabe over medium heat.
Once the soymilk is almost simmering (about 180 - 185F/ 80 - 85C degrees), turn off the heat and quickly stir in the nigari liquid.
Cover with lid (for a cool/ cold environment, cover with a foil under the lid to make sure the extra-tight seal) and let it sit for 20 - 30 minutes.
Gently scoop with a serving spoon into individual bowls at the table. Enjoy with your choice of condiments.
