“This is another way to eat tofu. I just experimented one day and came out pretty good. Very easy to prepare and quick to make. I serve with hot rice. This makes very good vegetarian dish also. I usually eyeball the amount on each ingredients. Easy to increase or decrease depends on your tastes. Make sure you get a firm tofu. Soft tofu won't work well.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the tofu into desired size, about 3/8" thick.
  2. Heat canola oil in the non stick skillet over medium heat and fry the tofu slices for 2-3 minutes on each sides until they get golden brown. They should be crispy on the outside but soft inside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small ball combine soy sauce, ketchup, sugar, mustard, vinegar, chilly sauce, chilly powder, garlic, sesame seeds and set a side.
  4. When tofu slices are fried, transfer them on to another plate, keep the skillet on the medium heat.
  5. Add the soy sauce mixture into the hot skillet and let them bubble and thicken for about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Return the fried tofu slices back into the skillet with sauce and tossed them well. Transfer them on the serving plates and sprinkle chopped green onion on top. Serve warm and enjoy.
  7. Notes: I usually blot the tofu slices with paper towel to avoid oil splash when I add to the hot skillet and it also helps to create crispiness.
