Sweet and hot Sesame Tofu

Whenever I visit China my only source of Protein is Tofu. Actually for the past 3 years I made a point to include Soya products as part of my daily diet. Being Singaporeans my kids are big fan of Tofu too. I normally use Firm Tofu for making any fry like Pepper Tofu, Baby Corn Tofu Fry,  or Just Pepper shallow fry. I use soft Tofu (silken Tofu) for making dough for Chappathi or chapathi  or Roti  or Parotta. I normally do this Sweet and hot sesame tofu for morning snacks during weekends. Even though I have done it many times I never get chance to click. This time I made a point to click. So here you go with the recipe

Corn Flour - 6 Tablespoon
Salt per taste
Oil - 2-3 tablespoon
