Instructions

  • Wrap the tofu in a paper towel and place it on a plate with another plate on top of the tofu to drain the excess water. Leave for about 10 minutes.

  • Heat some oil in a pan on high heat and cook the tofu until browned on both sides.
  • Pour the sauce over the tofu in the pan until the sauce has reduced/evaporated a little.

Notes

Firm tofu is more suitable than silken tofu for this recipe.
