  • Drain tofu well, and squeeze water from tofu with towel.  Slice tofu into strips.  Add oil to pan and place tofu strips in pan on medium high heat. 
  • Mix all spices together in a cup.  Sprinkle ½ of spices on tofu in pan.  Cook tofu for approximately 5 minutes on each side until you get the crispy effect that you want.  Remove tofu from pan when cooked.
