What Ingredients Are Used?
Tofu- Using extra firm tofu is important for texture and crispy tofu. Silken tofu cannot hold its shape properly. Wrap the tofu in layers of paper towel or tofu press. It will release the water content.
Lightly dust the tofu with corn starch. Do not overdo it otherwise it will taste starchy. Air fry, bake, or shallow fry the tofu.
Vegetables- All the coloured vegetables like broccoli, coloured peppers, bok choy, green beans, and snap peas can be used in this recipe.
Mushroom and baby corn taste great in this recipe. You can choose your choice of vegetables and skip what you do not like.
Aromatics and Herbs- Onion, ginger, garlic, and Thai chillies are the perfect aromatics for Asian recipes.
Cilantro and scallions are the perfect garnish for this. I have used white sesame seeds for additional garnish as well.
Chopping and slicing up the vegetables is really important for expediting the cooking process. You can prepare them after washing and drying them.
Alternatively, you can buy prepared/chopped/sliced veggies from the superstore.
Can You Use Frozen Vegetables?
Absolutely. You can certainly use frozen vegetables. Use them just like normal veggies. Frozen vegetables release much more water while stir-frying.
Cook them a little more so that all the water dries up nicely and your veggies feel crunchy and delicious.
