Servings 1
Prep Time 29 mins
Setting 1 hr


  • Cheesecloth


  • 300 ml Soy Milk
  • 250 ml Water
  • 3 tbsp Vinegar


  • Heat the soymilk to 71 degrees Celsius or heat it up till it boils while stirring.
  • Turn off the heat and let it cool for 3 minutes. Stir when it cools down.
  • Mix the vinegar and 250 ml of water in another bowl.
  • Add half of the vinegar and stir it well for a few seconds.
  • Stop the circling motion of the soymilk.
  • Add the rest of the vinegar.
  • Gently mix the soy milk in a back and forth motion.
  • Cover the pot and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Strain the curdle using a cheesecloth.
  • Squeeze out the excess water.
  • Shape the curds in the cloth.
  • Weigh it down by compressing it with something heavy.
  • Let it be for an hour.
  • Unwrap the cloth and dip it in cold water for a few seconds.


  • Use the homemade recipe for soy milk to make the soy milk in this recipe. Store-bought soy milk can’t curdle well to make tofu.
  • Instead of vinegar, you may use lemon juice. But ensure your lemon juice is sour enough to curdle the soy milk.
  • For mixing, use a wooden spoon or spatula. Metal spoons may react with the acidity.
  • Don’t stir the curdle too much. Mix just enough to incorporate the vinegar well.
