1
Press the tofu down with a heavy object or a tofu press for at least 15 minutes to remove excess liquid. The height of the tofu should be reduced by half.
2
Hand-shred the tofu into uneven chunks, roughly in the shape of strips.
3
Place tofu chunks in a ziplock bag with 1/4 cup cornstarch and shake to evenly coat all the tofu pieces.
4
In a pan, heat a generous amount of vegetable oil on medium-high heat and fry the tofu pieces until golden-brown and crispy. Remove from oil and drain on a kitchen towel.
5
In a clean pan over medium heat, fry the minced garlic, ginger, dried chilis, and brown sugar, stirring until sugar is melted and caramelized, about 3-4 minutes.
6
Add soy sauce and 1/2 cup room temperature water to the pan to deglaze. Stir until sugar clumps dissolve and the sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.
7
Make a cornstarch slurry by mixing 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 1 tablespoon water. Add it to the pan and cook until the sauce thickens further.
8
Turn off the heat, add the crispy tofu and scallion pieces to the sauce. Stir to coat the tofu evenly.
9
Garnish with white sesame seeds and serve warm with rice.
