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

Firm Tofu - 3 Cup (after cubing. Each cube about 1/2 inch)
Corn Flour - 6 Tablespoon
Salt per taste
Oil - 2-3 tablespoon
Sesame seeds - 1 tablespoon

For Sauce

Ginger - 1 teaspoon grated
Garlic - 2 teaspoon grated ( I love the flavour of garlic so I have added more. If you not a big fan reduce it to 1 teaspoon)
Soya Sauce - 1.5 teaspoon
Honey - 2.5 tablespoon
Sesame oil - 1.5 teaspoon
Red Chilli flakes - 2 teaspoon
Vinegar / Rice vinegar ( I have used Vinegar) - 1 teaspoon


Cube the Tofu and add salt and cornflour and mix it well. Keep it aside for 30 mins. 
Mix all the ingredients under For sauce and keep it aside for 10 mins.
Heat the kada and add 2-3 tablespoon of oil and shallow fry the Tofu till all the sides are slight brown in color. Make each pieces are touching the bottom of the kada if not do it in 2 batches
Heat the kada and add sauce. When the foam start to form add in fried Tofu and mix well.  When the sauce is fully coated on it add in Sesame seeds and mix well.
Serve hot. It can be served as snack or as side dish to fried rice or noodles
