Serves 3


  • 1 block of tofu, firm or extra firm

Spicy Hoisin Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Mrs Tran’s Kitchen Hoisin Sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon (or more) Mrs Tran’s Kitchen Sate Chilli Oil. (Note: This can be omitted for a non-spicy version)
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Cut the tofu into equal, square portions.
  2. Add oil in a pan or a wok and heat it on medium-high heat.
  3. Fry on both sides for about 5 minutes, or until tofu turns light yellow-brown and crispy on the outside.
  4. Take the tofu out and let it rest before eating.
  5. Put all of the sauce ingredients together in a bowl and mix well. Drizzle on top of tofu or use as a side dipping sauce.

We love to enjoy this dish with steamed rice and a herb salad.
