  • 1 block of firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Soy sauce or sweet chili sauce, for serving (optional)


  1. Drain the tofu and press between paper towels to remove any excess moisture. Cut into 1-inch cubes.
  2. Place the cornstarch in a shallow dish. Coat the tofu cubes in the cornstarch, shaking off any excess.
  3. Place the sesame seeds in a separate shallow dish. Roll the tofu cubes in the sesame seeds, pressing gently to adhere.
  4. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  5. Add the tofu cubes to the skillet and cook until golden brown and crispy, about 5-7 minutes, flipping occasionally.

  7. Serve with soy sauce or sweet chili sauce, if desired.

Tips and Tricks:

  • For extra crunch, you can coat the tofu in panko breadcrumbs before rolling in the sesame seeds.
  • If you prefer a spicier flavor, add a pinch of chili powder to the cornstarch or sesame seeds.


  • For a sweeter option, you can brush the tofu with a mixture of honey and soy sauce before coating in the sesame seeds.
  • For a vegetarian option, you can use a plant-based sauce, such as teriyaki sauce, instead of soy sauce.
