Pan Fried Tofu (香煎豆腐)

Yields: 2 Servings Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 5 Mins Cook Time: 15 Mins Total Time: 20 Mins

In Singapore, my family used to go to a restaurant that had the best pan fried tofu EVER. This restaurant was called Happy Realm, and it certainly was such a place. Unfortunately, it has since closed down, so I can only try to recreate it at home.

The original Happy Realm version was a gigantic block of tofu on a hot plate with a super savoury sauce. I remember there was always not enough of the sauce to go around, so in my version, I am extremely generous with the sauce! I also made the tofu smaller to make it easier for newbie cooks.

  • Cut the tofu into medium blocks about 1 cm thick. Mince all the other ingredients.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil over medium heat in a non-stick pan and pan-fry the tofu on both sides until golden. Set aside for later.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil over medium heat in a non-stick pan. Add the garlic and fry for about half a minute.
  • Add the mushrooms. They will absorb all the oil but don't worry because they will let it all out again later.
  • When the mushrooms have released all their water, and the water almost cooked off, add the bell peppers and most of the spring onions. Reserve some spring onions for garnish.
  • Add 1 tbsp of soy sauce and 1 tbsp of vegan oyster sauce and mix well. Put the tofu back into the pan. Sprinkle with about 1 tsp of ground white pepper and salt to taste. Toss to mix well.
  • Garnish with white sesame seeds and spring onion.
