6

Once cooled, cut the steamed tofu into smaller, equal pieces. Coat each piece evenly with cornstarch and let them sit for 10 minutes.

Preheat the air fryer to 190ºC. Brush a layer of oil on the coated tofu pieces. Place them in the oiled air fry basket and air fry for 12 minutes at 190ºC. Flip the tofu and fry for another 7 minutes at 200ºC.
Alternatively, heat oil in a wok over medium heat until bubbles form around a bamboo chopstick. Deep fry the coated tofu in batches until crispy and golden brown on both sides. Increase the heat to high towards the end of frying to expel excess oil. Remove and drain on paper towels.
