  1. Drain the tofu well and remove most of the moisture by wrapping it in several paper towels and pressing it down with a weight. Then chop them into small cubes.
  2. Add the corn flour, salt and pepper to the chopped tofu and mix it well. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a wok or fry pan and add the tofu in it and shallow fry it until golden brown. Drain it on a paper towel and keep aside.
  3. In the same pan, heat the remaining 1 tsp of oil. Add the minced garlic and fry for 10 secs.
  4. Now add the spring onions (Keep a few green to garnish) and saute for about a minute. Then add the chopped bell pepper and sauté further for a couple of minutes.
  5. Now add the soy sauce, brown sugar and the sriracha (chili sauce) and mix well.
  6. To this add the fried tofu and give it a good toss to mix well.Transfer it to a serving platter and garnish with the spring onion top.
  7. Serve as is or with sweet chili sauce.
