How to prepare tofu
For this recipe, you need firm tofu. Dry the tofu well with kitchen paper, season with salt and coat with cornstarch. It is corn starch that gives our tofu a nice crunchiness. Heat the sunflower (or any neutral oil) in a wok or normal pan on high heat and add the diced tofu.
Fry on each side until nicely golden brown. It should take around 5 minutes. After that, set the fried tofu aside and let it rest.
Stir fry the peppers and carrots as well, which you then also set aside. Then stir fry the shallots, garlic and finely sliced ginger. But now you leave them in the wok, to which you also add the ingredients needed to create a delicious sweet and sour sauce. If there is not enough liquid, just add some water.
Afterward, just add everything back to the pan and mix well. Instead of noodles, you can also serve sweet and sour tofu with rice. Some people like to add fresh pineapple, which is typical of recipes with sweet and sour sauce. Moreover, it adds an excellent sweet taste.
