How to Make Spicy Fried Tofu
Drain the tofu well and remove most of the moisture by wrapping it in several paper towels and pressing it down with a weight. Then chop them into small cubes.
Add the corn flour, salt and pepper to the chopped tofu and mix it well.
Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a wok or fry pan and add the tofu in it and shallow fry it until golden brown.
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.
