Stir fried tofu with red cherry tomatoes

Saw this dish in a travel show, tried to cook this dish at home and I have been cooked this dish for several times, love the flavours of sour, sweet and salty. I would say this is a vegetarian version of a dish that I cooked earlier- 4321 Fragrant garlic belly pork.

I like such a dish but admit I don't do it at home cos of the deep-frying of the tofu first before stir-frying...me lazy.

I like adding cherry tomatoes to my dishes too. Simple but flavorful!

Pei-Lin@Dodol and Mochi said...

Hey, this is definitely a paragon of home cooking! Simple and delish! Ya know what, I don't buy deep-fried tofu too when I need it because I love deep frying tofu on my own. I think this habit was formed during my college days in the U.S. We craved for deep-fried tofu, so we gotta make it on our own! Hahaha!

My Little Space said...

I love this kind of cooking style for tofu! Simply delicious with rice. Should make some next week. Thanks for reminding me!
