Tofu Pan Fried

This is the simplest of all simple recipes! All you need is the extra Firm tofu, this Vegetable sauce , chopped scallion and toasted Sesame seeds. And about 2 to 3 Tbsp of cooking oil plus salt and pepper to season. The only waiting part is the pressing of the tofu to rid excess water. For this, remove the soaking water, place the tofu block on a large plate, place a small plate on top of the tofu block, the water will flow out after about 10 mins and fill the large plate. Discard the water and pat the tofu dry with kitchen paper towel.

Cut the tofu by the width into 5 or 6 pieces, depending on the size of the tofu block. Soft tofu will not work in this recipe! Season with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Pan fry each side of the tofu for 5 mins till slightly browned. Remove from the pan and spread some of the vegetable sauce on one side and sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds and chopped scallion. That's it! For great presentation, serve with some salad leaves.
