      I have to make another batch of this today! This is better than the meals I get at the Chinese restaurant... really! What a yummy meal!! The green chillies (I used jalapenos) and chili sauce (I used the hot stuff) added a nice burn, which I love. I pressed the tofu to get out the excess moisture and cut it into bite size pieces. It fried up nicely with the cornstarch coating and that helped the sauce stick to it as well. Also, I just mixed the cornstarch and water with the soy sauce mixture and dumped it in the pan all at once. I don't know what rotis, naan, parathas or kulchas are but I sure wasn't missing anything. This was fantastic all by itself. Thanks so much for yet another great recipe, Char!

      This is the best recipe for tofu I have ever tried. Although I used green peppers instead of the capsicum but it tasted great too. My family just loved it...

      This is my first experience with tofu. I used chicken stock, which worked just fine. This is absolutely delicious! The ingredients complement the tofu perfectly! Easy to prepare. Very nice looking. Thank-you for a very enjoyable introduction to tofu!
