Slice the tofu into cubes/1-inch thick slabs. But before that make sure that drain any water and pat it dry completely.
Important Tip: I was a little slack in doing a good job and it shows the way it fried. So make sure to use several layers of paper towels and let it sit for few minutes esp. if you are using the tofu that comes with water

The cispy fried tofu was really tasty- crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. It was great. I made the sweet chilli sauce but it turned out very sour so I added more sugar and some salt to it. This fried tofu can be served with any sauce. I tried it with the garlic and chilli sauce from the supermarket and it was good too. Thank you for sharing.
I made this today and loved it. I used my deep-fryer, so I used more oil, but will strain it and refrigerate. I love how it turned out - crispy on the outside and almost melty on the inside. The sauce is great, too, and so simple.
I confess that I used a whole box of Mori-Nu and ate it all by myself. Couldn't help it.
I passed this recipe along a few weeks ago to a friend who has recently become a vegan. Now I can actually insist that he make it!
You can use fine ground cornmeal or coarse cornmeal. I think I used coarser one for that crunch. --DK
