Serves 2
  • 1 16 oz package extra-firm tofu
  • 5 tsp curry powder
  • 3 tsp garlic powder
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch
  • 3 tbsp neutral oil

Remove tofu from package and cover the top and bottom with paper towels or a clean cloth. Place a heavy skillet on top of the covered tofu and allow gravity to press the water from the tofu for 10-30 minutes.

On the stove, heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat.

In a bowl, combine the curry powder, cornstarch, garlic powder and salt.

Cut the pressed tofu into 1” cubes and add to the bowl with the cornstarch mix-ture and toss until the tofu is coated.

Add the tofu to the oiled pan and cook for 3-5 minutes, tossing occasionally with a spatula to get the tofu golden and crisp on all sides. Remove tofu from the pan and discard the remaining oil. Serve and enjoy!
