Crispy Fried Tofu with Red Chili Sauce

Day 3 of the Blogging Marathon, I am back from the Donut Fest, that happened in Donut house. I will post a separate blog about it. But in a nutshell it was a lovely experience working in the kitchen of Donut House, and making my own flavours. It was exciting though I did not win it.

Coming to the day's post, I was inspired from Chef In You's recipe for fried tofu. I have adapted the recipe from there and made some tweaks to it.

Ingredients :

Crispy fried Tofu
Tofu - 1/2 pack 
Corn flour - 2 tsp
Red Chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying 

Red Chili Sauce:
Garlic pods - 3 finely chopped
Vinegar - 1 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Cornflour - 1/2 tsp
Sugar - a pinch
Red chili - 2 nos, chopped into fine pieces

Method :

Crispy fried Tofu:
Remove the water content from Tofu by placing a heavy vessel over it 
Cut it into small cubes and pat dry them
In a bowl mix corn flour, red chili powder and salt to form a paste
Heat oil in a heavy bottomed wok
When the oil is hot, dip the tofu cubes in the corn flour and deep fry them
Remove them on kitchen towels and serve with Red Chili sauce

Red Chili Sauce:

In a bowl , mix all the ingredients and serve with the crispy fried tofu
