TOFU WITH LEMONGRASS AND CHILLIES

Simple tofu dish that is so easy to prepare yet appetisingly good and tasty. It is so aromatic with the fried lemongrass that I just wanted to serve it right away, not attempting to plate the tofu pieces nicely. A dish worth trying. 
It is suitable for all ages. The tasty sauce is great for rice. Quite an addictive dish if you love tofu.  Nice vegetarian dish [just omit the fish sauce, replace by light soy sauce].
Ingredients
2 pieces tofu - each cut into 6 pieces
2-3 stalks of lemongrass - white part only - finely chopped
1 small red chilli-chopped small pieces [more if you like it spicy]
some chopped coriander 
Seasoning [combined]
1/2 tbsp sugar
20 ml each light soy sauce and fish sauce
1/4 tsp mushroom stock granules
60 ml water
  1. Soak tofu pieces in water with 1 tsp salt for 30 minutes or you can do this earlier and leave in fridge until required.
  2. Drain before using, cut each piece into 6 small pieces.
  3. Heat a non stick wok, add oil to pan fry tofu pieces until golden brown on both sides.  Remove and set aside.
  4. Remove excess oil leaving enough to fry lemongrass and red chillies until aromatic.  Add in fried tofu pieces.
  5. Pour in combined seasoning and water.  Stir to mix well, then bring to boil for a minute.
  6. Dish up to serve.  Garnish with chopped coriander.
