Step 1

Open and remove the tofu from the packet. You may need only half the amount of tofu to make this dish. So slice it into half.

Step 2

Place the unused portion in a container with a lid and pour cold water to cover the tofu and store it in the refrigerator for later use.

Step 3

Sprinkle some salt on either side of the tofu that you are planning to use now.

Step 4

Heat a tbsp of oil in a non stick frying pan.

Step 5

Place the tofu on it and fry till it becomes golden brown on both sides.

Step 6

Remove the tofu from the pan and slice it into small pieces in whichever way you like it. Keep the fried tofu aside.
