Sweet and Spicy Tofu

Vance stumbled upon this dish in a Chinese grocery store, interestingly enough. It was one of those prepackaged cold food that they sell in a container and he immediately fell in love with this dish, a combination of sweet and spicy sauce on cubes tofu. I did my best to recreate this dish and it came out pretty similar. It is really easy to prepare.

2 boxes medium firm tofu (cut into 1"x1" cubes)
1 teaspoon oil
2 tablespoon ketchup
3 tablespoon Mae Ploy sweet chili sauce
1 tablespoon Huy Fong chili garlic sauce (add more to increase the heat)
Enough oil for deep frying

Deep fry tofu cubes until golden brown. Drain well.

In a wok, heat 1 teaspoon of oil. Add in ketchup, sweet chili sauce and chili garlic sauce. Turn the heat to high and cook until sauce thickens. Add in fried tofu cubes. Toss and cook for a minute. Serve warm or cold.
