Fried Tofu with Sweet Chili Sauce



Fried Tofu with Sweet Chili Sauce

Fried Tofu


  • 1 package extra firm tofu
  • cornstarch
  • canola or vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 small bottle of sweet chili sauce
  • 1 green onion, sliced very thin


  1. Remove the tofu from the package and drain the liquid.  Wrap the tofu in several sheets of paper towel and press, soaking up any additional liquid.  
  2. Cut tofu into triangle-shaped bite-sized pieces. Place in a mixing bowl and add cornstarch a tablespoon at a time and toss the tofu.  Cornstarch should coat each piece and tofu should be relatively dry.  
  3. Heat a wok on medium heat and pour a quarter of an inch thick of oil in the pan.  Place tofu wide side down in the pan, tofu should not be touching and don’t crowd the pan.  
  4. After a couple of minutes, the tofu will be lightly browned and have a crunchy edge.  Flip and continue to cook.  
  5. Once lightly browned on all sides, remove the tofu and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.  
  6. Repeat with remaining tofu.
  7.  Place all the tofu in a large mixing bowl and add enough sweet chili sauce to coat.
  8. Toss, add the green onions and toss again.  Serve immediately.
