Crispy Tofu with Garlic and Chili Padi

I love tofu so much! Any tofu dishes! I love it! How about you? 
I am thinking to find another way to cook tofu and I remember that I ate this before! Since I want it and I don't know where to get it here ( I am sure there should be a place to sell this dish around here) so I decided to try to cook it! 
Crispy Tofu with Garlic and Chili Padi

  • 3 blocks extra firm Tofu (cut into small cubes) 
  • 2 tbs Corn Starch
  • 1 tbs Tapioca Starch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
Sprinkle Ingredients: 
  • 10 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 8-10 chili padi (minced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 spring onions (Thinly cut)
  • cooking oil
  • In a large bowl, Mix well corn starch, tapioca starch and also salt. Add tofu and mix well. Make sure all tofu cubes cover by the mixture. 
  • Heat the pan, add cooking oil and fry tofu until crispy and cooked. Put aside. 
  • Next, heat the pan, add cooking oil and fry the 10 cloves minced garlic until the color become yellow (golden), dry and crispy. Put aside.
  • Next, heat the pan, add cooking oil, saute chili, 3 cloves minced garlic and salt and also spring onions. Mix well until all cooked. 
  • Add the fried garlic to the mixture above, mix well. Put aside.

Sounds like more work to make this, but actually it is easy and simple!
