  • Drain it on a paper towel and keep aside.
  • In the same pan, heat the remaining 1 tsp of oil.
  • Add the minced garlic and fry for 10 seconds.
  • Now add the spring onions (keep a few green to garnish) and saute for about a minute.
  • Then add the chopped bell pepper and saute further for a couple of minutes.
  • Now add the soy sauce, brown sugar and the sriracha (chilli sauce) and mix well.
  • To this add the fried tofu and give it a good toss to mix well.
  • Transfer it to a serving platter and garnish with the spring onion top.
  • Serve as is or with sweet chilli sauce.
